Heady like the sweet breath of Zephyrus, our India pale ale is redolent of citrus, apples, and pears, balanced by a touch of caramel. We use malted barley grown by local farmers and add a special blend of Cascade, Centennial, and Calypso hops to create this juicy, hoppy ale.

Bulk_Carrier's rating

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 9/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 19/20
Bulk_Carrier (6064) - Vermont, USA - FEB 4, 2013
From the bomber, it pours a beautiful golden copper and yields the same color body. A great two inch foamy white head appears and lasts for at least a good two minutes. There is some spider web lacing speckling the sides of the glass. The smell has a good complexity of hops and malts, some sweet, some bitter, and some spicy. The taste has a peppery yet piney sort of flavor that to me that I really like. The palate is superb as it is not watery nor is it sharp, a perfect feel on the tongue. Overall, I was not expecting this IPA to be this good, but this is really awesome.

Chewy cheesy hop and crystal malt. How old school. Meh. I mean it's ok for what it is but hops do come across cheesy.

Can at Black Christmas 2017
Hazy golden color. Grainy IPA, with resiny and citrusy hops, not too bad.

12 oz. can, pours a hazy golden blonde with a medium off-white head. Aroma is light, with floral hops, herbal notes and a is light vegetal character. Flavour is loaded with boiled vegetables, followed by herbal, soapy hops, and biscuity malt. Too vegetal - off. Not good.

In high school I was in a band called Zephyr, and much like that band, this beer is okay but not something I necessarily want to revisit.

On tap @ Rising Tide. Pours a bit on the hazy side. Orange in color with a nice white head. Comes off much sweeter than I typically like, which I guess is sort of the typical knock on the "East Coast IPA". Candied orange and grapefruit peels, some pine, and dried flowers. It has a definite sugar component to it, beyond just the usual bready malts. Certainly some caramel, too. Wasn’t one of my favorites in their arsenal.

jgb9348 (6581) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - NOV 1, 2016
Rich copper coloured body with a nice, two centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of toffee, caramel, earth, grain and a bit of nice bright hops. Medium-bodied; Earthy flavour with a lot of pungent piney and resinous hops showing through nicely. Aftertaste has a good deal of bitterness, some smooth grain and malt flavours, a bit of resin and bready yeast noticeable still, with some caramel and earth, but the hops are driving and taste of pungent notes. Overall, a very nice and well-balanced IPA with some good flavours, smooth bitterness and subtle complexities. I sampled this stubby twelve ounce bottle purchased from Hannaford Grocery in Portland, Maine on 30-July-2016 for US9,99 for a six pack, sampled at home in Washington on 29-October-2016 before running the USMC Marathon 2016. Batch 522, Born: 30-May-2016.
