COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
American Brewers have re-defined this traditional English Ale with an intense bitterness derived from the distinct citrus/pine character of Pacific Northwest hops. A dry, crisp malt character and aggressive alcohol make our I.P.A. a Hop-Heads Passion. 16.5į

12oz can, thanks BuckNaked. Crystal clear amber body atop medium off-white head. Aroma is medium sweet, grapefruit, some pine, light cattiness. Taste is moderately sweet, grapefruit, pine, light catty. Light-medium body, light resin. Itís a smooth drinker that hides its alcohol well. But it also seems a bit lighter in the hoppiness that I want from an IPA. So Iíd consider it something of a higher alcohol APA.

Pour on tap at Phoenix airport, hazy orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of pine, grass, some orange with a hint of lemon. Taste is a mix of orange, floral hops, spice into caramel, finishing bitter. Pretty standard, decent.

12oz can pours a medium to dark copper with off white head. Nice lacing on the glass. Nice medium aroma of malts and a good citrus and pine scent. The flavor yet not over powering is a solid flavor of malt and hop flavor. Really like this one again.

BeerandBlues2 (10390) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - JAN 5, 2015
Can in my hotel room. Pours clear dark amber with a medium, frothy off-white head, long retention with excellent lacing. Aroma is herbal, citrus, and pine hops with pale malt and pear esters. Flavor is moderate hops and bitterness, light sweet malt and fruity esters with a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

12 oz can. Red orange with slight of white head. Piney aroma, but nothing overpowering, some grapefruit. More pine on the taste, not my favorite kind of IPA, but still good.

Can bought from the store at the entrance to Grand Canyon National Park, drank at BDSB 3 weeks later. 4 months old when drank (shoulda checked the date!). Pours clear orange amber, offwhite head lasts ok. Smells of twiggy caramel malt, some citrus hops. Tastes sweet, caramel burnt sugar, moderate bitter, juicy orange fruit, some sweet tropical notes too. I can tell this beer was decent fresh but itís suffered a bit from being sat for months in a warm shop.

Clear red orange pour with a white head and great lacing. Juicy tropical fruit and citrus aroma with some pine. Taste is pineapple, citrus rind, caramel, and a bitter pine finish and aftertaste. Medium body. Can is about 3 months old and still very good.
