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!

zombywoof (457) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - OCT 31, 2008
Very pronounced aroma of spruce, grapefruit and sweet malt. Delicious and balanced. Not too bitter or too sweet with a nuanced blend of piney hops, malt, citrus, nectar and spice, Nice lacing-gold color. It has very vibrant hop profile without being excessively bitter. Mental note-drink more of this.

Elegant lemon resin nose with lavender. Deep orange hue with a frothy long lasting head. Rich biscuit toffee sweetness with herbaly hops for a nice balance. Well-carbonated, medium mouth feel, lovely piney finish. Well-made IPA with just the right amount of restraint and expression of balance.
