COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We dry-hop this American Style India Pale Ale with seven grains and four domestic hop varieties by adding dry whole hops to the finishing tank so the beer rests "on top" of the hops for five extra days! Malty sweetness up front with big cascade and glacier hops in the finish -- a wonderfully drinkable IPA!

From a bottle...malty aroma; sweet malty taste, not much of a hoppy bite. Not bad just not one of my favorites... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap. Pours hazy amber, small off white head, decent lacing. Aroma is caramel and pine. Flavor is light plus sweet, light plus bitter, caramel and pine. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel. This would have been interesting fifteen years ago. Now itís a solid, but pedestrian, offering.

12 oz bottle. Not exactly fresh, but also not exactly bottle dated. Some hops. Maybe a little too much malty sweetness for the low bitterness. Not that impressed, but I could drink it if it was my only craft choice.

Rated base on notes taken 11 Feb 2012 -- Nothing to write home about. Mediocre IPA.

I had this at Flying Saucer. Pours orangish with a white head. Taste citrus, dry, lightly sweet. I thought this was just ok. I could drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Salmoniform (991) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - AUG 12, 2014
Poured from bottle to glass. Hazy orange hue with creamy white head that settled but lingered. Aroma is melon, tangerine, grapefruit, ripe lime, resinous. Mouthfeel is nice with a medium body and zesty carbonation. Taste is dry sweetness initially with a bitter following that extends into the finish. Overall this is a nice fruity IPA.

12 ounce bottle pours a light golden orange color. Fruity aroma of mango and passionfruit. Highly carbonated with a bit of a tart taste. A bit different but still an easy drinking I PA.

b3shine (5821) - Indiana, USA - JUN 19, 2014
Draft to pint. Looks decent; malty though. A slightly hazy burnt orange with foamy off-white head. Smells solid; bitter and fruity hops with some mild sweetness from the malt. Tastes like it smells, but less balanced. A touch of soap as it opens up too. Average on the palate. Not bad, but smells better than it tastes.

Scipio (719) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - APR 24, 2014
Pours a golden amber in color with a full and frothy, lingering white head. The aroma is strong in pine and floral hops, to go along with some grapefruit, melon, and slight mango. The taste is very dry and isnít very bitter for this style. Actually, the taste seems almost forgotten in this one. Some pine and light grapefruit remain, but that is about it. The grapefruit aftertaste is very mild, although it does last for a bit. Medium to full in body, with a thicker texture, and above average in carbonation. This one is rather disappointing. I was expecting much more.
