COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Stats are 15 Plato Original Gravity. 6.7% ABV. IBUs around 70. Color wise its on the orange end of the IPA spectrum thanks to a shot of dark crystal malt- which also helped create a nice malt backbone for this hoppy beer. We kind of went back to our roots on this one and used hefty doses of Cascade and Centennial hops. The beer was also dry hopped with Centennials for an extra aroma kick.

Pours orange with a hearty off-white head that shrinks rather quickly. The aroma is impressive - a refreshing gust of pine and citrus hops. Light-bodied and refreshing. Maybe a little too thin, but in the end does a nice job of showcasing the Cascades and Centennials. Hoppy, refreshing, and great for those looking for a tasty IPA that doesnt get weighed down by too much malt.

22oz bottle. Pours a good looking light amber/caramel color with a good looking head that leaves behind some lacing. Nice light citrus nose that lets some of the malt through. Peach, oranges, some sweetness, touches of resiny pine, caramel and biscuit notes. Balanced flavor of malt and hoppiness. Decent stuff, but is lacking a bit in the sticky hop resin for me...in the nose, taste and mouth feel.

Juicy citrus aroma, caramel colored with a few floaties and a white head. Light bodied with a pleasant crescendo of a hop kick in the finish. OK surprisingly light in body, this beer drinks clean and quenching. My kind of sessionable IPA. Honey malt, juicy citrus hops.

22 oz bottle from Bier Stein. Poured a very dark amber, with a huge cascading and pillowy white head that leaves fat, sticky lacing everywhere. Aroma is one of the best Ive gotten from an IPA, just huge and intense mixture of grapefruit, peaches, oranges, pine needles and just enough caramel malt to keep it all in check. Flavor not quite as great, but still excellent mix of caramel, citrus and pine hops. Very tasty beer, one of the better ones Ive had from Laurelwood.
