Introducing our year-round Almanac IPA, a West Coast hop bomb overflowing with hop flavors and aromas. We start with a copper-hued malt base of California-grown two-row barley, German Vienna Malt, Crystal Malts and Biscuit Malt. Then we start layering on the hopsgrown all along the west coast in California, Oregon and Washington. We combine Magnum, Chinook, Cascade, El Dorado and Simcoe to create our own unique twist on the IPA style with intense aromas of grapefruit and tangerine peel, pineapple and pine trees. The finish has a clean bitterness and light saltine cracker note.

ccex (1277) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 30, 2016
Bomber pours a hazy golden orange color with long lasting tight white head which leaves good lacing. Aroma is full of floral and citrus hops. This is not an over-the-top hop bomb, but a memorable one anyway, with more orange and peach than grapefruit, and not too dank. Taste is bitter with a brief hint of biscuits or bread in the middle before a long dry finish and a fruity aftertaste. Body is medium to full with average carbonation and a slightly sticky mouthfeel. This is a great west coast IPA Ill look for again.

KyotoLefty (10106) - Kyoto, JAPAN - OCT 19, 2016
Bomber bought in Hawaii. Tropical fruit and stone fruit in the nose, with rich, biscuit malt. Oranges, touch of detergent. Deep golden orange, hazy, with lace. Sweet and soft, rich malt and lots of fruit, mostly jams. Or baked fruit, marmalade, etc. not fresh citrus. Pine, too, a lot. Honey. Fun stuff. Possibly not super fresh.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - OCT 1, 2016
Bottle:   Faint haze, orange hued, thin to moderate frothy white head, little lacing.   Mildly sweet hoppy aroma, a little citrus in there.   Some powdery sweetness but its minor.   Moderate sweetness on the tongue, citrusy, a bit candied at times, otherwise some pith and peel.   Thankfully the sweetness lends balance to the citrus bitterness.   Fairly smooth overall, almost chewy.   Soft pith and peel on the backside.   Fairly tasty example, not overly hopped, nice malt balance.   Fairly nice!
