COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Spring IPA (March-May) is a West Coast-style IPA with an up-front intense hop flavor and aroma. Amarillo and Centennial hops give the brew a rich and resinous flavor of citrus and spice. This bright pale ale has a malt sweetness that will give way to a pleasant bitter. It pairs well with Mexican or spicy Szechwan Chinese food. Spring IPA is a nice accompaniment for cheeses with strong flavors, like sharp cheddar or goat cheese.

Bottle from Woodmans in the Falls. Pours a clear orangey copper with a foamy white head leaving spongey lace. Aroma has sweet fruits, toffee, pine and a touch of skunk. Taste is of sweet caramel, sweetbreads, light citrus, some pine and some resin. Medium bodied. Not much alcohol presence. Finishes fruity caramelly sweet. Decent, east coast malty-sweet IPA. Some hop presence, but that is not the lead in this brew. 13.8.

Bottle. Moderate malt and hop aromas of bread, roasted, and herbs, Light to moderate soap for the yeast, with notes of wood and papper. Head is average size, creamy, white with thick, slipper lacing and is fully diminishing. Color is slightly hazy yet sparkling light to medium amber. Flavor starts slightly sweet and lightly to moderately acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and bitter. Palate is medium, oily with a lively carbonation. This IPA looks and tastes better than is smells.

It puts a clear copper/gold with a large white head. This IPA has your classic IPA aroma. It is crisp with sharp resin and herb hops with hints of citrus. The taste is medium to heavy bitterness with a slight sweetness. Light to medium body with a somewhat sticky texture. The finish is considerably bitter and hangs around just a bit. I would look for this in a bar and buy a few at the right price.

Ottima IPA stagionale, molto fresca e dissetante. Bel colore ambrato carico e buona schiuma bianca. Molto profumata, erbaceo e fruttato. Corpo leggero, poco carbonata, beverina e gustosa al tempo stesso, con i luppoli da aroma in evidenza che ne esaltano la freschezza. Amaro presente e gradevole.

LinusStick (3497) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 22, 2014
Meh. An average IPA. I always wonder if the people writing the commercial description have even tried the beer. West Coast style this isn’t. Aroma was spruce, pine and caramel. Pour was beautiful. A medium gold with a 2 finger head and tiny bubbles rising from the bottom non-stop. Very enticing. Taste was so so. Malt forward with caramel malt being the main flavor. Some pine in there as well, but not much hop flavor to speak of. Good beer but not a good IPA. Nice carbonation.

firemarshal (206) - North Carolina, USA - JUN 18, 2014
Bottle. Hazy amber color. Aroma is resinous pine, floral hops. Taste is fresh honey, caramel sweetness, with just the right amount of bitterness to balance nicely. Overall what-it’s-supposed-to-be IPA...

chinchill (5226) - South Carolina, USA - JUN 16, 2014
12oz bottle poured medium amber with a large and durable off-white head. Aroma: light on hops for style. Flavor: Pronounced hops appropriate for style. Herbal and flowery hops. Moderately bitter. O. Looks great, smells good, but the taste is a bit disappointing albeit appropriately bitter and hoppy.
