3.5/5  rDev -6.7%

Draught. Dark orange color, full long lasting foam. Strong aroma dominated by the hop, which is herbal, medicinal, mineral-like. Well flavored, well brewed I.P.A. Nice backbone. Potent herb, spicy, hop. Intense and strongly flavored. Well made India Pale Ale.

Ageless growler via New Beer.

The IPA Project has been kind to me over the past couple of years. Odyssey as an end result wasn't that bad. Who the hell is getting exited about the new "Pale Ale Project"? I could care less now. They still make a ton of interesting beers I can better focus on now.

/not a lush

Poured into my Ommegang anniversary glass. A clear, ruby-laced amber with an inch of off-white paste. Frothy, white wash lace.

Smell is softly baked, minimally toasted & caramelized, bread crumbs. Light mixed bouquet of flowers. Very little in here actually.

Taste is delicately sweet. Simple bread crust, confectioner's sugar, & butter. The alcohol brings forth bitter green hops, with some grapefruit rindyness taking a backseat. The alcohol & resinous bitters stick around during the finish, haphazardly washing away the body's initial soft impression. Carbonation could be stronger.

A little uninspiring, but a decent stab(as always) from the IPA Project.

3.88/5  rDev +3.5%

Clear amber pour with a thick 3 finger eggshell head that thins out slowly. No lacing. Aroma is a sort of herbal floral hop note, no malt apparent. The taste is a decent but not overbearing malt backbone to a strong hop presence. A bit of harshness to the general hop bitter aftertaste. Light-medium body with good carbonation, even after a trip across country.
Overall a good brew. Thanks to PEBKAC.

Poured from tap into a nonic pint glass at TJs. This is a new IPA project beer.

A: A medium to light amber orange with a one finger off white head and minimal glass lacing.

S: Earthy spicy hops with hints of malt sweetness.

T: Hops up front with a dirty earthy spice, hints of grass, some pine and grainy malt sweetness. Not overwhelming and more towards a european style. Light and dry with the hops settling in on the finish to linger bitterness.

M: Light mouthfeel as the beer seems to disappear in the mouth quickly. A slight bitterness lingers.

D: High, this is an easy drinking lighter IPA that is very enjoyable.

Overall a solid IPA, but not an award winner. It will lean more towards a european style, but it's one you can drink all night. Glad I tried it.

4/5  rDev +6.7%

Poured from a capped unlabeled bottle from my buddy Adam.

No head on pour, some carbonation. Transparent amber body, some foam around the rim. Some pine and cintris on the nose, even alcohol. Bitter hops on the tongue, sweet warm malts, nice and balanced. Good smooth east-coast IPA brew.

thanks to PEBKAC for the brew.
