Brilliant golden amber color. Inviting aromas and flavors of toasted onion bread, tres leche cake with dulce de leche gelato, and orange-mango cream pie with a round, vibrant, finely carbonated, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a smooth, long spiced roasted pineapples and mangoes, pita bread, and greens finish. A wonderfully fruity and savory IPA with everything in its proper place.

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.
