COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This big, rich IPA features Simcoe hops which give it both a fruity, piney hop nose and a clean, ringing bitterness. IN-between, the malt flavor is slightly caramel for a touch of malt sweetness. This IPA is well-balanced and very expressive with hops.

Overall, a great representation of the traditional IPA. Sitting at a local new brew pub in San Antonio in the summer heat...a great, relaxing, smooth IPA. Good times, good beer, and hot weather (102 right now)...life is good.

john44 (3000) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 7, 2017
Bottle. Amber in colour. Very hoppy; piney resinous slightly oily hops. Fruity; tangerines and grapefruit citrus. Malty backbone; toasty biscuity malts, caramel. Although the hops dominate, they are not extreme. This is a reasonably balanced hops/fruit/malt beer. Long dry bitter hoppy piney finish. Enjoyed this. Nice IPA! (2009-08)

Thank you tderoeck! 355 ml. bottle sampled @ Sebletitjes Farewell Tasting. Bottle says 033116 - bottled on? Clear orange, off-white head. Nose is oily stale pine oil hop, bland old USA IPA, stlaer hops. Taste is oily basic malt, sugar, pine resin, stale old USA IPA, barn hay. Stale USA hop oil body. Still pretty decent but feels quite old, far older than it should at 6 months.
