COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Initial Point is a landmark in the great state of Idaho. Selected in 1867 by LaFayette Cartee, this site was used to survey all other cities and landmarks in the state. Slanted Rock’s American style IPA is a medium intensity beer, golden in color with moderately-high bitterness. It is kettle and dry hopped with Cascade for it’s floral and citrus aroma characteristics. Columbus hops upfront provide high bittering and Crystal malts add a caramelize sweetness to the crisp finish.

Cloudy orange amber with thick rocky head. Aroma of malt and light hops, taste is a bit more complex with the malt haps, spice and grassy elements all playing together. Mildly bitter with no lingering palate. Average.

12oz can. Golden hazy pour with a finger of white head. Balanced flavor that finishes bitter, good mouthfeel. Pretty good IPA, although a little bitter for personal preference.

IndianaRed (2184) - Boise, Idaho, USA - NOV 1, 2013
On Tap at the BP hazy orange light amber with a small fine sandy head. Modest hop aroma and fairly bitter. Not a ton of hop flavor. A middle of the road IPA

On tap at the Mountain Brewers’ Fest 2013. Pours a clear golden color with a medium white head. The aroma is rich very deep fruity notes, some resin. The flavor was clean, flavorful, balanced with bitterness and more deep fruit. Light crystal earthiness. Very nice.

Tap: Cloudy gold with a nice frothy off-white head and sticky lacing. Aroma of grass, mild sulphur. Pretty good flavor with a bit of hairspray sharpness in the aftertaste. Not bad for the new brewery! Keep it coming.
