Commercial Description
Brewed with some serious west coast attitude. This aromatic golden IPA starts with a sucker punch of six different hops to the nose, quickly balanced by a solid malt back bone. Our top selling beer at the pub, this IPA starts big and finishes clean leaving you wanting more.

    [Best served in a Shaker glass]

    The pour was a clear medium golden amber with an average sized (1-2 finger) white fluffy head that diminished down to a few puddles and a large collar of residue, creating some excellent sheeting of sticky lacing.

    The aroma was of a straw like malt, floral and grassy hops and a moldy yeast with notes of caramel and citrus (grapefruit and orange peel).

    The taste was lightly bitter, mildly malty and a tad acidic with a hint of caramel from the start and then became very hoppy with a strong citrus peel bitterness and a decent alcohol presence towards the end. The flavor lingered for a decent while being of a bitter hoppy citrus taste.

    Mouthfeel was a few steps beyond light in body with a dry oily texture and a nice lively carbonation.

    Overall a brew with a good balance of bitterness and maltiness with a great hoppy citrus feel...

    From a can it poured a hazy orangish color with a nice amount of off-white fluffy head that had some lacing.
    Very slight aroma of malt sweetness. More noticable hoppy, grapefruit ctirus and piny aromas present.
    A big bready malt flavor comes through. Piny and grapefruit citrus flavor followed by a dry finish with mild hop bitterness. Decently balanced but leans more toward the malts than a typical IPA.
    Mouthfeel is smooth, medium body and carbonation. The extra maltiness adds to the drinkability here.
