Details

What stands here before you is the result of a quest to brew an outstanding IPA loaded with hoppy citrus and malty caramel. Inspired by a richly malty DIPA, the idea was to create something similar - big malt, huge aroma - but scaled down to a regular IPA.The first version was all about Cascade and although delicious, it wasn't quite citrusy enough. Future versions featured more hops and included Centennial to enhance and sharpen the citrusy edge of the Cascades - that combo proved to be the answer (along with a much larger dry hop addition). From there the amount and variety of crystal malts was chosen to get the toasty caramel flavor perfected. After that, it was just a couple more test batches to dial in the IBUs, OG, and body of the beer. The result of this epic journey speaks for itself - a wonderfully balanced IPA that has a noticeable caramel malt backbone, and a fresh citrusy hop profile with a huge, in your face aroma.

A really good clean IPA Review by Kevin
Rating
Everyone I've given this to has loved it. Its a nice clean hop flavor without too big of malt profile combating it. Its an IPA that drinks like a lawnmower beer. This will be my go-to IPA. (Posted on 7/16/14)
Great tasting brew! Review by Shawn

I brewed this bad boy about a month and a half ago, kegged it a couple weeks ago and it's quite tasty! Added about a pound of brown sugar at the end of the boil to up the gravity a bit and it ended up bringing out some wonderful characteristics to the beer!

After transferring to the secondary I did a taste test and it seems quite strong on the alcohol end, but further aging really blended things well with this one. Citrusy, but not overpowering as I thought it would be. A little bite at the front end of each sip and a smooth finish; everyone who's tried it so far loves it. Will brew again! (Posted on 6/29/14)
