single, The Beer Shoppe, Ardmore

a: first off - love the label art, twelve ounce bottle into an avery snifter, the pour brings out a light but full coating of off-white head, receding to a smattering on the surface, the beer itself a dark honey amber in color

s: lots of sweet, rich caramel malt and fruity hops on the nose, notes of baked apples, sweet potato, sweet citrus pulp, more fresh caramel, pineapple, and fresh hop resin

m: medium, malty body with a light-medium, delicate carbonation

t: mostly follows suit with the aroma...a tasty, sweet caramel malt body blends with hop juices and flavors of apple, pineapple, and sweet citrus, a resin bitterness begins shortly after the swallow and slowly builds to around moderate strength in the finish

o: as stated on the website the brewer’s intent was to create a balanced, malt fueled ipa without an overwhelmingly bitter aftertaste, and while an atypical ipa, I think it works and would certainly go for another, could have gone higher elsewhere but I'll tack those points on here

Poured from the bottle into a Dogfish Head ale glass.

Very dark for an IPA, but a good reddish caramel brown color, with a three finger very creamy head that is evenly formed. Settles to a good finger sized even puck, with some minor floaties in the bottom.

Nice soft biscuit like malt, and a faint floral/herbal hop angle that is subtle. Hints of matching malt like cream and soft pine as well. Not hop forward but solid.

Palate fills with a good tea like sweetness and a nice leafy hop finish. Solid body that coats the mouth and palate fully. Tea like sweetness matches with a little bit of light pine bitter on the aftertaste that really lingers. Caramel like malts match with a nice balance to compliment as well.

Not your hop heads typical go nuts over IPA, but a very solid good one. Enjoyed this.

Much love for this beer, but damn what's up with the floating sediment?

Flavor-wise I love the English-leaning malt profile, works well with the American IPA liveliness and astringency. Nice to have a drinkable IPA that is bitter without being citrusy, just for a change of pace from most of the IPAs I get down with.

There is a massive amount of sediment in this beer.

Overall, it's kind of a was of flavor. Thick malts with spiced tones on there and a bit of a burn from who knows what. Thicker feel. Eh. This beer is just, "there." Nothing overly interesting or noteworthy.
