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!

Dark cloudy copper. Thin head. A lot of thin lacing. Smells like cascade hops. Very bitter at first, but it goes away quickly.

Backlog from lost notes notes: Aroma of dank hops, grass and compost (?) Taste is fruity, resiny, a little malty with toffee. Good sweetness. Godd stuff!

Draft at Thunder and Buttons. Pours clear bright gold with a fizzy beige head. Tastes like grapefruit, caramel, resin, nutty malt, dry citrus hops. Light/medium body and carbonation. Smells like caramel, grapefruit, resin, citrus hops, and nutty malt.

Beer improves with warming. I’m a fan of the more balanced brews and while the aroma here is suggestive of that, the rest doesn’t quite follow through. Flavor leans bitter and finish continues with that. Very easy drinking brew. I’m looking forward to more.

stevoj (2950) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 6, 2015
On tap at PreFunk. Seems tame after a IIPA, but straight forward. Hops not as big as expected, subdued. More resinous than citrus, but nicely blended overall. A bit maltier, but not too much bigger than an APA. I would consider this a good gateway IPA, but not rated as highly as represented here.

Milo024 (13) - Los Angeles, California, USA - AUG 5, 2015
Golden yellow, resembling a pilsner in appearance. Piney and herbal aroma. Crisp and refreshing, not a hop bomb but definitely a great beer.
