Thunderhead Brewing's Cropduster Mid-American IPA

It looks like they've changed the labels somewhat: Leatherhead Red was "Gridiron Ale" - pretty harmless, but not very descriptive; Cropduster appears to have been called "Herbicidal IPA" - not too appetizing!

The color is an orange-amber with a towering beige head that sinks down to a fluffy island atop the brew. Willamette and Cascade hops impart a sharp, yet smooth hop character with citrus notes and pine bitterness.

I'd recommend trying a glass with some barbecue or fried fish rather than unaccompanied.
