Hop Ride IPA

BREWERY:
Tenaya Creek Brewery

LOCATION:
Las Vegas, Nevada

STYLE:
IPA (India Pale Ale)

COLOR:
Light Copper

ALCOHOL:
7.2%



Do not be afraid to try this beer because it's 7.2% ABV.  You can actually drink this IPA in the 650mL bottle, all by yourself.  To tell you the truth I didn't know the alcohol content until after I had it.  Then I was shocked to see that it's 7.2% ABV because I loved the flavor and it was very smooth. It's has medium hop smell with a hint of citrus.  Very inviting to say the least.  It's full bodied but won't leave you bloated.  It has a great hop taste, smooth malt flavor, and the finish is bitter at first but dissipates quite quickly leaving a fairly smooth aftertaste.  A definite must try for people that love IPA's that are really smooth and well balanced.
