COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The india pale ale is our strongest house ale brewed with copious amounts of American hops to highlight their resinous, piney, citrusy flavors and aromas. Nuff said.

Draft to pint glass Grapefruit, orange, spruce, some toffee, and hops. Clear amber, very little effervescence, thin creamy white head. Pepper, flowers, pine, spruce; nowhere near what I expected given the aroma.

Headbanger (3278) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAR 24, 2014
Draft flight 3/23/05 (Brewery)-Pours a yellowish amber with a small head. Aroma of hops. Taste of the same with a bit of pine. This medium bodied brew was the best so far.

monk191 (892) - California, USA - NOV 9, 2013
A very average IPA. Pours and ugly clear yellow. Smells like hops. Taste is a little fruity upfront, with a slightly bitter finish, but nothing to remember. Had on tap at the brewery. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
