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.

Golden amber pour with an off white head. Aroma is hops, a little spiciness to them. Very tasty and refreshing. Nice malt backbone. A frothy retaining head that left great lacing.

Cybercat (5553) - Georgia, USA - SEP 9, 2015
Pours clear amber with a thick and frothy ivory head. Aroma is not strong, but promises with hoppy and fruity notes. Hops really come out in the flavor, with Mandarin orange and hay notes in tow. Mouthfeel has average body and bold, persistent fizz. Spring into - whatever season.

Strong grapefruit & citrus aroma on a medium golden pour with a large, soft, slightly off white head. A soft & sweet bitterness thats full of citrus & flavor makes this highly drinkable and delicious! One of the best IPAs Ive had.

JoeMcPhee (9426) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 20, 2015
Hazy golden pour with a thick white head. The nose is quite citrusy with a touch of wheat and some nice fruitiness. There is a little bit of lemon and a touch of wheatiness. Fresh tasting with a little bit of light zestiness and some pithy bitterness. Theres a touch of fruit. Tasty beer - particularly from Abita.

kramer (6570) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 18, 2015
Bottle. Pours a mostly clear dark gold body under a one inch frothy white head that left some sticky lacing. The nose is a little sweet for an IPA, with some caramel, some minimal floral hoppiness, and toastiness. The flavor is rather sweet with some light botanical notes, some minimal hoppiness, lingering caramel and toffee. This could really do with a lot less sweetness. Lighter bodied, yet a little clingy, with soft fizzy carbonation. This one isnt for me.

wlajwl (6515) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JUN 4, 2015
Aroma is citrus, fruit and graham crackers/teddy grahams. The flavor is citrus, fruit, malts, a hint of teddy grahams and a mix of hops and slight spice/heat in the finish. A little old, still pretty decent.

seymour (1957) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - JUN 2, 2015
Poured from 12oz brown bottle into Spieglau IPA glass, a mostly clear light orange amber colour, some chill haze, with sudsy everlasting white lace, sheets of fine lace. Intense US hoppy aromas and flavours with a strong enough maltbill underneath. Crisp graininess with hint of caramel. I love this Centennial/Amarillo combo: very fruity, grapefruity, black currants, pinecones, high alpha resin. Light-medium body, average carbonation, nice round mouthfeel and just the slightest residual sweetness. Hoppy bitterness and tangy flavour dominate the aftertaste. A very good IPA, Im glad I bought a six-pack instead of just a single bottle.
