COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This IPA sacrifices nothing for its drinkability, flexing big time flavor and complexity. The light color disguises the depth of the malt backbone, a pillar that balances the potent whole-cones of the piney-citrus Cascade and tropical fruit-like Citra hops.

Bottle. Pours a bright amber orange with a huge white head. Nose of resiny Cascade with citrus from both the Cascade and Citra, with a hint of tropical from the latter. Lightly bitter. Slick, light palate. A clean, light IPA.

Transfer from BA review on 8-23-13- Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – The beer pours a clear light amber color with a thick and billowy two finger just off white head. The head has a fantastic level of retention, slowly fading over time to leave a fantastic level of lacing on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma is largely of an earthy and pine hop nature. Mixed with these smells are some grapefruit hop as well as a bit of a biscuit smell as well as a little bit of a spice smell. Taste – The taste begins with a bit of caramel sweetness and a good deal of toasted malt which create a base for the flavors of the brew. A lighter hop flavor of a pine and grapefruit nature are present from the start as well. These hop flavors however don’t remain level, but instead, gain strength as the taste advances to the end. A bit of herbal and an earthy hop taste join the flavors at the end to produce a clean hoppy taste on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is average in terms of its creaminess and thickness with a carbonation level that is average to slightly below average. The lower carbonation helps accentuate the hop flavors of the brew while the average body makes it still quite easy to drink. Overall -A good IPA. It is kind of a harvest/torpedo hybrid in flavor and profile. Overall easy drinking and a nice one to try.

Bottle. Orange color with a white head. Smell is pretty heavy on the mango and pineapple aspect with some citrus and grass notes as well. Taste smooth and refreshing. Easy to drink, wish this was a regular offering. Reminded me of a somewhat toned down Torpedo.
