Notes/Commercial Description:
Atlas India Pale Ale is an ale with strength and character worthy of its name. Pale and caramel maltings of American two-row barley give Atlas IPA a malty backbone to support its noticeable, but not overpowering, hoppy flavor and aroma. Columbus, Amarillo, and Cascade hops are harmoniously blended together, bringing about floral and earthy tones which highlight this bold but delicious ale.

12oz extra from BeerBoy9960 in a recent trade, cheers man! Poured into a couple of tulip tasters with SundaySour.

A: A light colored sappy brew cute with apple juice. A modest ring of foam sits around the top, with very little head formation. The head rose like baking bread, then left with wet lacing that quickly fell back into the body. Browns and reds swim in a background of yellow.

S: Malty brown sugar solutions with a cutting presence of medicine hops. Potent dry lavender like herb presence from the hops makes for a rather disproportionate dusting of seasonings. Taking too big of a whiff makes it feel like you have dust in the nose. Very dry notes of herbs and sugars actually go fairly well together, but unfortunately the least desirable traits of each ingredient are prominent: Medicinal bitterness of the herbs and dizzying sweetness of the sugars. Fortunately, it's fairly drying; and this saves the bad from lingering too long.

T: Whole shell peanuts in a mix with old walnuts and Brazil nuts. Woody nut shell casings come off bitter like unripe acorn mush, but make for a pleasant transition towards a less intensely bitter hop presence. There's a bitter juicy taste that comes off like home-made black licorice that I am somewhat fond of. Really this thing is actually a pretty interesting bitter cocktail. It's made more enjoyable in that the bitterness is less intense in the end than it is in the start. This encourages multiple sips, especially as you begin to open up the nuttier flavors.

M: A very light body for an IPA, but it remains consistent in that the bubbles are still there sip after sip. This isn't flat, but it is most certainly too light of a body. I suspect this isn't quite as intended, but not bad in any case. This allows the nutty flavor to linger a bit longer.

O: Eh it's not bad, but I'd have a hard time drinking it as it is. If this thing had a bit more contrast away from the bitter nuts and herbs, there would be something more interesting here. However, for the flavor profile it exhibits: it's quite drinkable. I wouldn't want to put away a sixer of this, but having this fresh on tap might not be a bad way to start a night. This beats out a lot of local options in a lot of states, good for Oklahoma. I just hope that bolder flavor profiles are explored by marshals. This would not work well as a backbone for an imperial.
