Reddish mahogany color. Roasted aromas and flavors of chocolate caramel nut muffin, lemon curd, and chestnut honey and fig bread with a satiny, vibrant, finely carbonated, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a tingling, compelling, medium-to-long finish with notes of toasted dark bread, creamed honey, radish sprouts, and peppered 85% cacao chocolate finish. A supple and sensuous British style IPA with chewy malt and finely tuned, relatively understated hops.

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.
