Hazy amber color. Bright aromas and flavors of honey baked peaches and grapefruits, raisin rye toast, and pinecone with a satiny, tangy, finely carbonated, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a tingling, stimulating, medium-long finish with accents of chocolate orange peels, pepper, and roasted carrots and mangos finish. A super smooth and sessionable IPA with lots of delicious citrus hop and malt notes.

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.
