Minutely hazy yellow color. Aromas of roasted corn and brussels sprouts, caramelized citrus and root vegetables, and pine with a supple, vibrant, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a tingling, perplexing, breezy grapefruit rind, rapini, and orange pepper finish. A very savory and extra hoppy old school IPA for hopheads.

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.
