Description 

This hoppy creation is everything a Northwest IPA should be. It showcases the amazing resinous and piney characteristics of Simcoe, the crisp citrus of Citra, and the bitterness of Summit hops. Pouring a beautiful opaque orange, this beer is juicy, unfiltered, and delicious!

This beer pours a light amber color with a long-lasting, off-white head that leaves nice lacing on the glass. It greets the drinker with a prominent grapefruit and resiny hop aroma, with a light bready and caramel maltiness to offer some support to the hops. The flavor follows suit, with a strong grapefruit and resin hop flavor that transitions nicely into a fairly high but smooth hop bitterness that lingers through the dry finish and beyond into the aftertaste. A light bready malt emerges behind the hop bitterness to provide a pleasant balance, but still allows the hops to take center stage. The fermentation character is fairly neutral. This is a satisfying northwest-style IPA that is sure to please a wide variety of hop lovers.
