COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ready to buck convention? We took the traditional IPA, originally shipped from Englad to India in the 1700s, and made it bolder and more flavorful - American style. We've added new varieties of highly aromatic American hops to create a distinctive bitterness profile and an incredible hop character. Hop on, hold tight, and enjoy the ride!

Clear copper with s small head. The aroma is spicy, floral, citrus, and rich caramel malt. Mostly traditional ipa hop aroma. The flavor brings our more caramel, reminds me of two hearted, but with different hops. Full body and some balancing bitterness. Not bad.

Thanks Brandon. This was poured into a becher pint glass. The appearance was a semi-hazy burnt golden amber color with a one finger sustaining white head. Bubbles roamed in and out of the head, but it still looked nice for the most part. Tired bubbly lacing clings to the glass nicely. The smell starts off with some sweet ruby red grapefruit pulp. Light citrusy-rind like bitterness runs into the blend. A little bit of pepper spice charms the underneath part of this. The taste was moderately bitter with a nice dry sweetness of the grapefruity hops lead into the aftertaste and cherish a dry citrusy sort of finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium in body with a decent sessionable feel to it. Carbonation feels good for an AIPA as a good amount of bitterness from the hops hits my tongue in a good appropriate harsh feel. Overall, nicely done AIPA that I know I would have again.

UPDATED: MAY 5, 2016 Beautiful golden amber colored pour, nice foam that lasts several seconds, resin aromas, very subdued taste does not have the typical IPA kick. 7% alcohol is not present, very well balanced.
