COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This mammoth IPA is defined by generous quantities of premium hops and balanced with a premium selection of English malt. Traditionally unfiltered IPA’s lead to the slight haze appearance. An extensive dry-hopping process contributes to its very intense floral hop aroma. The IPA is unfiltered and as always, unpasteurized to leave all the natural flavors intact. If you’re at the brewery you’ll be able to guess what style of beer every brewer has in his hand. THE BEER YOU'VE BEEN TRAINING FOR!

Great all-dayer! Aroma of malt and mango. Beautiful honey color, with just the right amount of bitterness on the palate.

Pours a hazy reddish orange with a tan head. The nose is citrus, caramel malt backbone, fruit. The taste is citrus, melon, mild malt, ending zesty and a bit dry. Light+ in body with active carbonation. Not an extreme IPA but it is well balanced and quite tasty.

Bottle. Refreshing IPA. I would prefer a little more hop flavor at the finish. But Sweetwater has plenty others that can go there. Good grocery store option. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Well balanced and light tasting. Almost makes you think it is a session beer. Tried at the Drink the District President’s Day event in DC in 2014.
