Commercial Description

Down to Earth is the natural evolution (pun intended) of Bitter American, our original session ale. We thought it would be fitting to bring our space chimp home and let him chill. Whether you have a long mission behind you or a full afternoon ahead, this session IPA will help keep things real. More relaxed than an IPA, but with all the hop aroma and flavor, Down to Earth is our tribute to unsung heroes and unplanned adventures. 

Down to Earth is available year-round in six-pack cans and on draft and pairs nicely with a variety of things, including lunch.

    12 oz can into a tulip. Best by 07/19/2015 so very near the end of freshness.
    A: Dark, dirty gold with a strong inch tall head of pillowy texture. Very good retention and lacing. Small amount of visible carbonation. Looks good.
    S: Sweet orange aroma and maybe a touch of caramel malt. Very little pine, but could be a touch of spruce which I do like. Smells good too.
    T: Much more pine than in the nose. A bitter orange flavor does come through. The caramel seems to be lost. Good tasting but perhaps not exceptional. I’ll venture to say above average for the style though.
    M: Light but not quite watery with a noticeable resin/oilyness. Average carbonation is enough to make it interesting.
    O: One of the better SIPAs I’ve had and I’ve now had quite a few. Well priced and available means worth buying if you like the style.
