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.

sloth (2765) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - NOV 1, 2012
moderate off white head with good retention and a coating, sticky lace.Clear, amber/copper hued brew. Nose is leafy, earthy and lightly citrusy, notes of caramel malt too. Body is medium, lil oily, lil chewy. A malt forward IPA, caramel and a not so menacing hop bill that seems to work out well. Little citrus and pine with some decent earthy notes as well. Fairly dry finish, enjoyable.Bomber from statelineliquors.

deyholla (9762) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 7, 2016
Bottle thanks to Sarah! Pours a hazy deep amber copper with a tan head that lasts throughout the beer. Aroma has a strong malt profile with lots of sweet grains and some earthy pine underlying. Flavor has more of a grass and sweet grain combination with some pine and a bit of caramel.

Type: 22-oz. bottle Glass: Clear hotel snifter glass From: Whole Foods Market in Honolulu, Hawaii Price: $6.99 Purchased: Dec. 20, 2015 Consumed: Dec. 23, 2015 Misc.: N/A Poured a dark honey, brown, murky color with 3-to-4 fingers of khaki white, frothy head. Excellent foamy lacing on the sides of the glass. Excellent retention. (Sight - 3.75) Smelled cascade hops, herbal hops, menthol, rye hops, spicy chinook hops, caramel, toffee and veggies. (Smell - 3.25) Taste follows the nose, seeming more like a strong ale than an IPA (even an English IPA). Got caramel, toffee, herbal hops, menthol, cascade hops, tobacco and dates. Very malty. (Taste - 3.25) Medium body. Creamy texture Average carbonation. Long finish. (Feel - 3.75) This should really be an American Strong Ale, but I reviwed this according to an IPA. Would have been around a 3.75 I would guess if reviewed this as an ASA. (Overall - 3.25) 3.33 76 B-

I sampled this on a 5 ounce sample flight. I had to buy a bottle and take it home. I really enjoyed this one. It pours a nice copper color with a thin white head. Very bitter with a smooth slightly caramel finish. A very good ipa.
