What the brewers say

We took the traditional IPA, originally shipped from England to India in the 1700s, and made it bolder and more flavorful—American Style. We’ve added new varieties of highly aromatic American hops to create a distinctive bitterness profile and an incredible hop character.

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Sweet citrus notes dominate with little to-no-malt aroma; a mix of floral spice (fresh peppercorns) and tropical fruit. Subtle mango, tangerine, ripe peach. Spice mellows and fruitiness intensifies as it warms.”

Flavor: “Hop flavor is dominant with fruity citrus flavors. Medium hop bitterness with low straw malt qualities. A juicy IPA, with prominent fruity hops that bring out mango, tangerine, and ruby red grapefruit flavors. Some pine and floral flavors with a bitter finish that lingers.”

Overall: “Enjoyable IPA that showcases American hops. Clean and easy drinking for an IPA. Very tasty and somewhat unique IPA with hop flavors and aromas that are less common. Nice bitterness that helps accentuate the hop profile.”
