Minutely hazy light gold color. Alliaceous aromas and flavors of chive muffin and lemon-garlic chutney with a round, lively, finely carbonated, dryish medium-to-full body and a tingling, appealing, long finish revealing accents of grilled grapefruit peel, lemon pepper, pine, and rapini and turnip finish. A robustly astringent and green IPA that delivers a palate-waking slap of hop bitterness.

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.
