Brewed in the style of West Coast IPA using cascade and centennial hops to give the beer a spicy, floral and citrus aroma. The beer is full bodied to hepl balance the large amount of hops used in the kettle. This style will be around for the winter months only. This will pair nicely with steak, shellfish and pizza.

This is a very nice IPA. Pours dark amber, with great head and lacing. Aroma of huge hops, malt, and bread. Tastes very hoppy AND very malty/sweet. Very nice mouthfeel. Well balanced, with a hoppy, malty finish.

Rastacouere (6174) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 28, 2007
Clear, nice-coloured golden ale. Excellent, firm white head, fully lasting and leaving massive lacing. Aromatic, slightly yeasty, well aromatic nose. Oranged, earthy, flower petals – well put centennial/cascade blend. Highly supportive bready malts, biscuity, soft and never exaggerating the sweetness. Growing sheets of bitterness follow the dry finish never get extreme. Soft-edged texture. Medium-bodied, soft carbonation, juicy palate. Great IPA.

Finally, a beer with flavor from trap rock. Full of hops. Piney. Delicious in many ways.

pivo (2665) - GERMANY - DEC 5, 2002
Floral, fresh hop nose. Lemony taste with lots of fresh, raw hops. Kinda one dimensional, but I like the bright hop resolution. Thin and dry like a martini. Man, I’m just picking the hops from my teeth...

decaturstevo (5788) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - JUL 18, 2009
Orange pour with creamy off white head and lace. Earthy/citrus hoppiness. Sweet malt with a medium bitter. A medium bodied beer. A nice finishing bitter that just grows on you.

Tmoney99 (13469) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 19, 2012
Draft. Poured clear dark amber color with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Solid complex hop aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture with soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Solid drinkable brew
