Kragle IPA is an American IPA, BJCP Category 21A. Classic West-coast hop aromas dominate this beer (pine, resin, citrus), and are strong in intensity. It pours a yellow-gold color with a bit of haze. The flavor is hoppy and clean, with mostly pine and resin notes and a touch of bready malt. It tastes firmly bitter and seriously dries out in the finish. This beer is medium bodied with moderately-high carbonation. Some may interpret the dryness as astringency. Overall, if you like your IPAs bitter, this could be your go-to example to keep in the fridge.
