3.53/5  rDev +8.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

22 oz beer was poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: The beer poured a two finger puffy head. It an amber orange color with good clarity and lots of bubbles coming up through the glass. Head has reduced down to a decent layer and the retention is great.

Smell: Lots of citrus up front. Some bready and caramel notes, but the tangerine and orange are dominant.

Taste: Hops are very dominant in the taste profile. Malts are hard to pick up and there is a lngering bitterness in the back of the mouth.

Mouthfeel: a little smooth, aspirin/chalky feeling, full bodied, medium carbonation, and a little tough to drink.

Overall: Not a bad IPA, but I would choose others before this one. I love the Pemi Pale so much, but this one is a little dissapointing. I still drank the whole beer too and hope there is room for improvement with this beer. I appreciate the IBU's, but some balance would be good too.

From BeerAdvocate magazine Issue #67 (August 2012):

LOOK: Quick frothing, clear pale amber

SMELL: Grapefruit rind, passion fruit, pineapple skin, green peppercorn, herbal, estery, crackers

TASTE: Smooth, crisp snap, bitter, grapefruit pith, heather, peppery, lime leaves, dry toast, yeast, slightly warming alcohol, very bitter finish

Wow, talk about being caught off-guard. Yeah, we saw the 82 IBU’s on the label, but we run into that on nearly a daily basis. 4000’er rakes down our taste buds with bitterness and a pretty wild flavor profile. Even the raw nature of this beer does not distract our palate from the massive hop presence here.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Sampled on June 9, 2013.

It pours an attractive looking medium to dark amber with a carbonated head that tops its off for the entire session. Lingers.

The aroma is upfront sweet and malty with an earthy hop feel that tends to take over quickly. It seems to fit into the style well.

The body is clearly astringent and acidic but there is also an unusual creaminess that accompanies it, which is a but odd for an IPA - but not offensive.

The taste boasts a full hop bitterness with the malts and other sweet character played down. It finishes a tad dry in a satisfying fashion. Decent enough American IPA.

Pours a mostly clear amber, with minimal carbonation or head. Smells of hop/malt split, but there seems to be multiple distinct hop aromas. Moderately bitter taste that stays, surrounded by the malt/hop mix, accented by alcohol. Medium consistency to the mouthfeel, fairly easy to drink. It was not exactly what I was expecting, but I enjoyed it nonetheless. It would be great if they could can this brew so it would be easy to bring a summit beer worthy of a 4000 foot New Hampshire peak.

Poured from a 12oz bottle, code is 128514, not sure how to read that.

Pours a hazy gold body, lots of lacing and a long lasting head. Aroma and flavor fall short though as it`s dominated by a malty and biscuity profile and bitterness is astringent but without flavor to back it up.

Cute bottle art. Amber with a thin head that disperses into a rip curl of retention. Smells piney citrus with a hearty caramel malt foundation. Mellows out into a sweet floral theme as it warms.

Tastes piney citrus with caramel backing. The caramel is easier on the gusto than the olfactories which is good 'cause I don't like too much in my IPAs. Pine and bug spray hop flavor is shamefuly overshadowed by the unbalanced bitterness. Body is light for 6.5% and has some nice resin.

An appropriate beer to celebrate my Wildcat, Carter-Moriah traverse in which I bagged 6 official 4k'ers.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a deep gold color, with a short off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a spotty lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains fruity citrus, grassy hops and caramelized malts.

T: The taste starts out with some sweet flavors of citrus and caramel. Then a strong but not over-powering hops bitterness comes in. The malt character is hearty but not too heavy and brings a decent balance. The after-taste is slightly bitter.

M: Crisp and a little smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: A little tasty, goes down ok, not too filling, decent kick, decent representation of style, it’s not a bad beer but there are several other choices in the style that are better.
