Brilliant gold color. Tropical, dank aromas and flavors of tropical fruit salad and chive muffin with a satiny, racy, frothy, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a tingling, long finish with nuances of pepper, pine, and arugula finish. A well composed very tropical hop forward IPA that is sure to please.

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.
