COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Everything you’d expect from a great American IPA: Hop-forward, yet civilized. Bitter but balanced. Cascade hops ring loud and clear with citrus/pine notes and are backed up by a chorus of our other favorites - Apollo, Centennial, Chinook, Columbus, Crystal, and Simcoe.

Poured from a can. Aroma is fairly hop forward with a medium light, pale cracker malt backbone. Hops are citrus with orange and grapefruit and tropical with pineapple and mango. Some light stone fruit notes too. Pours a pale, yellow straw color with a small, white head that recedes quickly to the edges where it lingers. Medium light lacing and small legs. Flavor is slightly sweet with a medium light pale cracker malt note, some of which lingers in the finish. Medium high to high bitterness. Hops are not as pronounced as in the aroma but there is some grapefruit, orange and mango with a light resin note. Mouthfeel is medium light bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, a pretty good IPA. Nice hop aromas, good malt malt presence, good bitterness, nice dry finish. Could use a bit more hop flavors though.

355ml bottle from Bier-Deluxe

BBE 23.01.16 :( - Pours clear yellowish golden with a foamy white head. Aroma of citrus, pine, grass, caramel, resin and grapefruit. Taste is hoppy, citrusy, grassy and piney with loads of resin, grapefruit, tropical notes, hay and sweetish malty notes. Finish is herbal, hoppy, grassy and resinous with some tropical fruits and sweet malty notes. Quite nice and surprisingly tasty despite it’s not very fresh.
