Cloudy golden yellow color. Aromas of dried mango, passion fruit pastry, and seville oranges with a satiny, vibrant, finely carbonated, medium body and a graceful, charming, medium-length peach fritter, savory herb focaccia, wheat crackers, and rapini finish. A balanced and complex IPA with a satisfying chewiness; great fruity, juicy character is balanced by a strong malty backbone.

American Style IPA

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.
