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!

Malt: 2 Row, Pale Malt, Munich, 70-80 Crystal, Wheat

seymour (1473) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - SEP 30, 2012
Tasted from a 12oz brown bottle into a schooner glass. It poured a slightly chill-hazed golden amber color with off-white foam, thin but long-lasting with a little lace. Aromas of grapefruity hops and some ale yeast esters, that’s it. Straight-ahead American hops-focused IPA flavor too, almost no malt presence. Tangy, crisp and refreshing. Overall, a pretty typical, one-dimensional IPA, but no deep flaws. Tasty, nonetheless.

Pours a clear dark amber with a cream head. Warm pine and citrus hops aroma. Full pine amd light citrus taste with a solid caramel counter. Caramel aftertaste with a slightly sticky mouthfeel.

A very good IPA, good balance of hops and flavours. If you can rate a beer by how much the miller/bud drinkers dislike it, this is a great beer!!

Aroma is pine, dank/grassy hops and a background of English malts. The flavor is citrus, English malts, grapefruit, grassy hops and a long and mild/medium bitter finish.

garrison (789) - Cin. city, Ohio, USA - DEC 2, 2014
Purchased as part of the 2014 Fall Seasonal Sweetwater twelve pack -This a a fine, auburn hued example of a Western IPA, with the upfront citrus/conifer flavor taking charge!

Bottle in variety pack. Mild sweet aroma. Hoppy flavor but not as bitter as most IPA. Perfect balance. Surprisingly good considering a variety pack.

Evolutionary (300) - Ohio, USA - NOV 23, 2014
Tap at Atlanta airport. Nose is thick dank hop. Color is a darker amber with little bit of froth lacing. Hop bite is there in full but is well balanced by the peach or apricot sweetness. More balanced than the magic hat since that's a bit fruitier. Overall pretty tasty.

Outstanding brew. Apricot shines through the hops, putting Magic Hat’s #9 to shame.

Advocate_Ames (446) - Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 9, 2014
Fresh bottle. Pours a hazy copper color with sticky and fluffy foam head. The aroma is very very floral with hints of spicy citrus. There was a nice a malted bread like scent behind the hop aroma. In tasting I noticed semi sweet malts, a defined wheat flavor, a dry finish, and a nice citrus flavor. Overall I enjoyed this.
