Brewer's Notes: The first New Realm Brewing Co. recipe developed by New Realm's legendary Brewmaster Mitch Steele couldn't have been anything but an IPA - this IPA. It's intensely hoppy with a classic West Coast piney, resiny and citrusy hop profile and a mild malt character in both nose and taste. Bitterness is smooth but substantial, and it finishes dry but with a balanced body. Mitch says "It's everything I want in an IPA. It's intense and bitter, yet drinks smoothly and has a wonderful blend of hop flavors dominating the aroma, taste and finish."
