Craft Beer & Brewing Magazine - - American Ipa -

ABV: 7.5% | IBUS: N/A | SRM: N/A What the brewer says

“Our Ee Tah! IPA pours to a bright, golden yel­low color with aro­mas of rich trop­i­cal fruit, pas­sion fruit with a hint of citrus. Pale, Pil­sner, and mid­night wheat malts give it a solid malt char­ac­ter while Chi­nook, Ci­tra, and Amar­illo hops im­part fla­vors of ripe trop­i­cal fruit, peach and apri­cot lead­ing to a clean hoppy fin­ish.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Fruit es­ters mixed with woody notes—or­ange, pine, wet grass, grape­fruit, le­mon. Light caramel and bread crust.” Fla­vor: “Piney with or­ange and blood or­ange in tow. The malt is sim­ple and leaves a slightly sweet pro­file which prob­a­bly brings out the rich­ness of the citrus. The bit­ter­ness is about right and lingers pleas­antly, al­though a bit more would help off­set the sweet­ness.” Over­all: “Clean and full bod­ied. The citrus notes are juicy and interesting. The pine is strong, and there is some bold­ness to this IPA. It’s an in­tense piney beer.”
