Notes/Commercial Description:
Our India Pale Ale has a pronounced hop bitterness and wonderful hop aroma. The taste immediately gives away the high hop characteristics with malt aspects playing second fiddle to this fantastic example of the style.

Picked up the can since nobody can have enough can reviews! Into a pint glass

A - Very carbonated amber brown, clear with a solid inch of fluffy head that settles to a lace ring. Sticky lacing all around.
S - Smell is very malty with hint of grapefruit hops in the mix. Very balanced.
T - Intense hop bitterness at first maybe my palate hasn't had a good IPA for a while. After a few sips the intense unbalanced bitterness takes a backseat but returns in the finish to give you numb tongue. Balancing cracker malts and sweet malts make this beer bearable.
M - Light to medium body, resinous yet forgiving.

Overall reminds me of my hometown IPA but with a touch more balance. Worth picking up if you love a good "hop punch" to the face.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a standard pint glass: color is gold to copper, head is off white with medium size bubbles, huge depth at about 1.5 inches followed by some lacing down the glasses sides.

Smell is pretty malty: light caramel, some toast, then the hops come through, earthy, light pine touch of grapefruit.

Taste, similar to the nose is malt forward; malt flavors are toast, some biscuit, caramel but not too sweet; hops are bitter, more neutral grapefruit and pine blended together but at a mild strength.

Mouthfeel is pleasant forward but a biting lingering finish: starts clean, neutral presence and light carbontion; lingering finish is strong on the tongue and biting or sharp.

Overall, this IPA looks great and has nice malt forward aroma, the taste is a touch malty and the mouthfeel is biting for the subtle malt presence.
