Tasting notes

Copper color, decent clarity. Light white head, low to low-medium carbonation. Medium hop aroma. Dry, assertive bitterness across front of the palate, fading quickly, not typical for a Northwest style IPA (no pine, citrus, grapefruit) just a firm bitter flight across the spectrum. Fairly dry finish, hops linger for +- 15 seconds. A solid IPA for those looking for something different than the current hi-alpha style of the popular offerings.
