COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This big, bold copper-colored ale showcases Munich & Crystal malts to create a big supportive body on which we layer our favorite Washington hops. Chinook & Cascade provide citrus and piney flavors, while Northern Brewer adds a hint of mint. Dry-hopping with Cascade and Columbus increases the beer’s hoppy aromas. Malt, hops and yeast-derived fruitiness combine to create our most complex offering.

Tasted on tap at Schlafly Bottleworks, a guest tap leftover from the Repeal of Prohibition Festival. Orange amber colour with weak white foam. Intense American hoppy notes with a little English Northern Brewer snuck-in. Aroma was more enjoyable than flavour, which seemed a little coarse, less smooth than some of the other IPAs in a side-by-side trial. Mellow caramelly malts, a little residual sweetness to balance the bitterness, low-medium body

Solid IPA. Pours a deep amber color, with cream colored head. Lots of hops on the nose, citrus and pine. On the palate there is grapefruit with just a little grass.

Bulk_Carrier (2276) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - APR 2, 2014
Reviewed from notes. The appearance had a somewhat hazy but more of a clear amber body with a one and a half finger white foamy head that rises a bit and falls leaving some sticky lacing in the wake. The smell had a bitter citrus hops up front but a nice bready/maltiness angles in to also give a bit of a floral/piney-ness as well. The taste had a sweet yet bitter combination of hops to bready maltiness, also gets a bit orangey, aftertaste is exactly the same, dry finish. On the palate, it sat about a light to medium, sessionable, carbonation is good for the style and good for me. Overall, I’d say this is a pretty good AIPA, just a tad maltier than most AIPA’s but still worthy of another purchase.
