Terre Ferme

Translation: firm or solid ground / earth.

Tons of deep head on this one, leaving sticky, lumpy lacing. It's slightly cloudy, and medium-amber in colour.

The aroma has ginger in it, with some floral notes (thinking Cascade?) that grow as it warms.

There is ginger in the flavour, too. Honey. Bitter citrus pith. It's similar to Palabre de l'Intendant in that way, but stronger.

The body is a light medium, and has a clean, bitter finish.

This is a very different interpretation of an American-style IPA. It's quite enjoyable, summery, and fresh.
