Description 

A balance of 5 grains with West Coast hops that were born in the shadows of the cascades. We use these hops in 7 different additions to create a wide depth of flavors. Great hop aroma with a malty sweetness followed by a citrus orange flavor and clean piney finish.

This American IPA begins with classic piney and grassy hop aromas, which are predominant. Underneath is a very low, clean maltiness, followed by citrus fruit, peach, and red apple. When it warms, there is a soft pils-like aroma and spiciness, reminiscent of a Belgian Blond. This beer pours a hazy mohogany color and carries a solid white head that lasts. Its flavors are very similar to its aromas, with an added vegetal and herbal aftertaste.  Bitterness and carbonation are moderately high. All in all, this IPA is a fine example of the style.
