COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This juicy IPA was developed in our "underground" basement brewery. Shhh...don’t ask what was happening in the basement, but the beer flows out of the tap a deep persimmon with a fluffy khaki foam. The only dank aroma emanating from this basement is one of earthy tones, juicy citrus, and a hint of lemongrass all derived from Citra hops. Basement IPA is balanced with a nice malty body that creates a sweet finish and developed hop notes in every sip. There is a hint of alcohol heat on the way down for this hop forward northeast style IPA. Beer geeks rejoice but you have to leave your parent’s basement because for now Basement IPA is only at your local establishment.

Solid dank IPA. Dark gold with nose of citra-citrus followed by dank and earthy flavors. Hard to believe the ABV which is hidden well. This one will play.

On tap at TacoMac in Atlanta. Pours a clear gold/orange and makes a white head. Lacing rings all the way down the glass. Aroma is subtle, but lightly of hops and malt. Taste is not overpowering given the ABV and the IBU's are pretty mild. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
