COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer is brewed using 2-Row, wheat, Vienna and caramel malts and is hopped with Summit’s for bittering and flavor and Ahtanum for aroma. This IPA was also dry-hopped, meaning hops were put in the fermentors and serving tanks to give a big citrus and spicy aroma, with Ahtanum, Challenger and Chinook hops. Our IPA is an American style IPA that has a high amount of bitterness but is well balanced and very drinkable.

22oz bomber pours copper with light tan head. The aroma has nice and bold and chewy resiny pine, spicy and grapefruit like hoppiness. Those aromatics are binding together with a modest level of sweet maltiness. Smells real nice. The taste is pleasingly similar with a great mix of pine hops, spicy heading into dank hops and grapefruit like citrus hoppiness. These notes are biased toward bitter hops but the flavor hops do carve out a bit of elbow room. Wow. This is a damn good IPA. I’m not sure if my expectations were just low or I was in the perfect mood for this. Nonetheless, well done. Yes, wow!

Draught at the Pub at Monte Carlo in Las Vegas. A great beer from a local Las Vegas brewery. This beer overdosed on hops and carries a big hoppy aroma and flavour. On the palate it was thick and seemed to coat the tongue. Bronzed amber in colour with some patches of light sand colour foam.

In a word,balanced. Not overly hoppy, malty, citrusy, or resiny. Just an overall nice, smoothly drinkable IPA. Good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bartender said this was to become one of the new regular beers. A light citrus aroma. This is pretty good. A hop bite that grows strongest in the middle. Very yellow in color. This isn’t a mellow IPA but it isn’t wimpy at any point either. Liking it.

Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver
Cloudy golden color, with creamy head. Nice aroma of fruity hops, yellow jam. Sweetish flavor of toffeish malt, very good, and well complemented by a nice and fruity hopping, not too resiny. Long final. Very good.

EdInSaltLake (584) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - JUN 11, 2013
Herbal, spicy hop aroma and flavor. Kind of like the hop character of an English IPA--but more of it. Light caramel malt flavor; nicely balanced. Bitter aftertaste (the good kind).

piscator34 (1946) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAR 11, 2014
Draft sample (dry hopped with Nelson). Hazy gold in colour with moderate carbonation. Strong aromas of guava, pink grapefruit, cut grass, and crispy pale malt. Tropical and sweet citrus hops pretty much take over in the mouth, but there are traces of grass, minerals, and aloe in there as well. Sharp but restrained bitterness. Shades of Toppling Goliath here. A very enjoyable beer.

AWISLguy (1160) - Wisconsin, USA - NOV 10, 2010
On tap at The Pub in the Monte Carlo. Mild to low carbonation. Small off white head leaving good lacing. Aroma is grapefruit and somewhat floral, with a hint of chocolate. Taste is some hops with a solid malt backing for a nice balance. Aftertaste is faintly hoppy. Very solid ipa. Wish they would distribute.

skmikeg (825) - Poway, California, USA - JUN 2, 2013
On tap at Monte Carlo pub. Pours a bright orange with a one finger white head with nice lacing. Aroma is of citrus, pine, sweet malts, and weed dankness. Taste is similar but also has some tropical fruit notes. Has a medium-full body with a creamy mouthfeel and a semi dry, moderately bitter, medium-long finish. Overall, a pretty nice IPA.
