look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass
A: Orange color, a one-finger head slowly settles
S: Toffee, citrus rinds but not much complexity
T: Very malty, some toffee, just a hint of hops towards the finish. See the 'overall' for my thoughts here
M: Medium-bodied, smooth but lacks the bite of an IPA
O: Overall this reminds me much more of an APA if anything than an IPA. It lacks the herbal characteristics and bitterness of an IPA. Not a bad beer by any stretch, though not particularly memorable and does not accurately fit the stated style in my opinion

Mt. Carmel Brewing IPA pours a deep amber with a foamy head. not a lot of scent. A somewhat flavor neutral taste that gives off some hops a malty mouth feel. Overall theirs not enough of the pine and hop flavors that i like, It turned into just a 7 percent abv beer.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A: Pours a dark amber with a good slightly off-white head. Some evident carbonation. Mild lacing.

S: Fairly mild aromas, with some mild hops, malt, and faint citrus notes coming through.

T: Malty with some definite bitterness. Mild hops can be detected along with some mild spice. Slight licorice. Perhaps a touch of a whiskey taste. Is this an IPA?

M: Somewhat earthy with some decent dryness and bitterness. It feels a bit thick for an IPA.

O: A beer with varied tastes, some of which work. If it didn't say it was an IPA, I'm not sure I'd know it was one (to me, it tastes more along the lines of a Newcastle Brown Ale). Maybe somewhere along the way it was and the hops had faded significantly by the time I tasted it. It's interesting, but just not what I would go for if I'm thinking IPA.

Reviewed from notes. Poured from 12 oz. bottle into pint glass.

A: Pours a clear gold, with a one finger white head and a nice amount of visible carbonation. Lacing through the drink is good.

A: Pine and faint fruity hops with a strong caramel malt backbone.

T: Taste similar to the nose but adds citrus hops flavor - a touch up front, but mostly in the hang.

M: Bit of a creamy mouthfeel for an IPA but still good carbonation. Bitter-ish hang for a few beats. Alcohol presence is minimum.

O: Better than I expected. When I got on here to review this one, I was a little surprised to see the low ratings this beer had received on BA. This one was a solid IPA, not great, but I would be glad to drink another one.
