Minutely hazy bright light goldold color. Fruity aromas and flavors of pineapple smoothie, sliced grapefruit, lime spritz, and parsley with a satiny, effervescent, dry-yet-fruity light-to-medium body and a seamless, interesting, medium-length finish with notes of seeded multigrain bread finish. A juicy, delicious IPA with a bold but balanced bitterness.

American style IPAs are deep gold to amber in color and fall between 5.5-7.5% in alcohol. They are characterized by floral and citrus hop aromas and a distinctive hop bitterness on the finish. This style originated in the 19th century when British troops and colonizers were working to develop an alternative to their standard ales in order to withstand transport to India. Today, US craft brewers have claimed the style as their own with assertive Pacific Northwestern hop varieties that stand out. Noteworthy examples of this style include: Laurelwood Workhorse India Pale Ale, Oskar Blue’s Deviant Dale’s IPA, Three Floyds Alpha King and Founder’s Centennial IPA.
