COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This mammoth IPA is defined by generous quantities of premium hops and balanced with a premium selection of English malt. Traditionally unfiltered IPA’s lead to the slight haze appearance. An extensive dry-hopping process contributes to its very intense floral hop aroma. The IPA is unfiltered and as always, unpasteurized to leave all the natural flavors intact. If you’re at the brewery you’ll be able to guess what style of beer every brewer has in his hand. THE BEER YOU’VE BEEN TRAINING FOR!

chickenflea (351) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - JAN 27, 2013
12oz: Hazy golden color, small white head that settles quickly. Good lacing. Grapefruit aroma with a touch of spiciness. Dried apricot sweetness also in the nose. A very nice aroma. Taste is very sweet with just the right amount of bittering for an IPA. Hops taste more floral than the citrusy aroma promised. The finish is long and steady with no odd tangents. Texture is a little sticky. Carbonation is above average - biting. The carbonation gives the beer a refreshing quality. A nice IPA the selection of hops (Columbia for bittering, and Golding for aroma) made this IPA interesting.

Hazy gold beer, tidy pale cream colour head. Palate is light and minerally crisp. Light malts, clean and sweetish. Good bright piney hop with light but fresh tasting orange and tangerine. Touches of pink grapefruit and mango. Light crisp finish. Bright and breezy, very easy drinking.

Pours medium with decent, lingering head. Nose is bright, citrus, honey. Taste is perfect, dense, carbonation, disappearing thickness, hops hops hops then nothing. Mouthfeel plays tricks, it’s syrupy for a second, then gone - making it easy to go back for an immediate second sip. Purists be damned, this IPA is great cold. I could drink this every day. I do drink this every day.
