Appearance: Burnt orange with a light khaki, fluffyhead.
Aroma: A burst of tropical hop notes; Apricot, Mango & Papaya.
Taste: A pop of tropical hop flavors up front and carrying throughout the
palate with tangerine, apricot and stone fruit notes. A pleasant malt backbone is present. The malts are not prominent, just enough to counter the alcohol and bitterness of the hops in the mid-palate. This IPA finishes with a long lingering, but crisp and clean bitterness with a touch of citrus.
Palate: Full-bodied but dry, with a warming alcohol fullness, followed with a light coating and finishes with a pleasant bitterness on the tail.
Overall: This hoppy American East Coast IPA is a full bodied beer brewed with American 2 Row and Honey Malt and Valley Wheat Flakes, and heavily hopped with Cascade, Columbus and Centennial. At 7.2 ABV and 70 IBUs this well-balanced, well hopped IPA…is a perfect match for every IPA drinker!
