COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Saint Florian, the Patron Saint of Firefighters, is now a Northwest IPA . A portion of Saint Florian’s proceeds will go to a Washington State Council of Firefighters benevolent fund. Silver City Brewery has a long standing partnership & tradition of working with our local Firefighters. The Benevolent Fund supports firefighters and their families as well as the general public, in their time of need. Saint Florian IPA, formerly Indianola IPA, uses Washington grown Cascade & Columbus hops that are boldly citrus, floral and piney. What better way to enjoy a truly local handcrafted IPA then knowing you are supporting those that keep us safe. Cheers to you and Cheers to Firefighters everywhere!

hayduke (3160) - Eureka, California, USA - FEB 19, 2014
This beer was shared with Strykzone on Facebook Chat. Pours an amber color with a creamy off-white head that pillowed and left lots of lacing rings. Nose of of stone fruit and floral hops. Body is medium. Mouth feel smooth . Flavor shows lots of the fruit, mostly nectarine Floral hops and some orange zest. Grapefruit maybe. But maybe not. Some bitterness in the finish. Really classic west coast IPA. Easy drinking. Lots of flavor. Lots to like. .

Strykzone (4479) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - FEB 19, 2014
Bomber from Hayduke that we had together via facebook chat. A big off white head that slowly falls and leaves sticky lacing. A bit of haze in this coppery beer. Citrus and tropical fruit in the aroma are nice. Some caramel. There is all kinds of tropical fruit in here. Pineapple, nectarine, tangerine and mango. Caramel malts with some bread. The fruit reigns here and is very nice. Orange zest and grapefruit. This is sweet and fruity. And very tasty. Good stuff.

Draft to taster Sweet caramel, grapefruit, and some hops. Clear amber with a touch of amber, creamy white head, with nice lacing. Taste is citrus, mostly grapefruit, but with a mix of other sweeter citrus, and it’s quite hoppy.

22415brewery (370) - redmond, Washington, USA - NOV 13, 2013
Pours a coppery orange, bordering on amber with a nice thick and dense off-white head. Immediate malt based aromas of munich and medium caramel malts are followed by a very familiar grapefruit and orange citrus aroma, slightly floral background. Tastes caramel-sweet and toasty, with a slight nod to irish red ale yet also a bit of malt esters like a lot of German ales. The hops are simple and straightforward and supply a balanced bitterness. Body comes across on the heavier side for an IPA. A filling beer and the alcohol sneaks up on you. The cause is also a good thing.

maekchu (1772) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JUL 18, 2013
Draught at the Great Japan Beer Festival in Osaka (7/13/2013). Big citrus, grapefruit mostly, nose. Mild citrus and solid malty flavors. Weak, watery body. Okay, I guess. But not really so impressive.

KansaiBeerLvrs (1342) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUL 15, 2013
On tap at the GJBF Osaka. Classic kind of copper gold color to this IPA, the aroma is kind of pine, mild funk, citrus-a really floral bouquet. Interesting stuff, very clean taste with mostly a biting bitterness. A top quality though slightly one dimensional IPA (the only American PA on tap at the fest), very bitter. I really like the aroma though the flavor isn’t as complex. Solidly made beer, well done but not my style. Well executed.
