This smooth looking beer is aggressively bittered and hopped with the finest hops from the Willamette Valley. This big hop character is supported by equally impressive malt body. IPA is not for the faint of heart. All our hops are purchased directly fro Wolf Family Farms, a fifth generation grower.

Thanks to huskertan! Pours a murky golden brown from the can with fluffy off-white head that dissipates to leave good lace. Aroma of earthy hops and big malty back end. Taste is pretty much all malt with just a hint of bitterness. Not that exciting, really kind of meh.

BOSSbrewer (2706) - Arkansas, USA - FEB 16, 2015
Can at home. Pours a clear copper/amber with two fingers of foamy off white head. Aroma is malty and hoppy with some floral and some pine. Some alcohol on the nose also. Flavor follows with mild bitterness. Overall, a very drinkable and nice IPA.

Poured from a can. Not sure why this is called an IPA. Overly malt taste; more of a brown ale. Little hop taste. Missnamed.
