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!

Some citrus and orange on the nose. Fair amount of carbonation. This is pretty refreshing almost drinks like an APA but at 7%. This would be a good one if you want something strong and drinkable.
