Growler from Brass Rail Deli.

Cloudy copper/brown in the glass. OK head but no lace. Smell of caramel malt, maybe some faint citrus. Taste matches the smell, really more of a malty brew than a hoppy IPA. Not sure why they have the Imperial in the name except for maybe the high ABV but if they were shooting for a DIPA they missed the boat. Not a bad beer but i think it's incorrectly named. Dosen't have any bold citrus characteristics to make it an American IPA and dosen't have the earthier tones that you would expect in a English IPA. ABV is well hidden and there is some bitterness in the finish. We'll finish the growler but not what I was expecting.

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

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

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.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a cloudy caramel color with a 1 inch head. Smell is of tropical fruits, hops. Taste is well balanced hops and malts. Bitter, yet not overpoweringly so. Some tropical fruits are present. Very easy drinking. Feels full bodied in the mouth and overall is a fine quality beer.

3.28/5  rDev -6.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

A: Ruby Red copperish tone with a 1 inch head. The white coating laces the glass.

S: Pine and citrus smells in the nose. Grapefruit up front with the piney notes coming in the back end of each whiff.

T: Grapefruit is very prevalent up front with a nice citrus bite but is fades quickly and there is no bite on the back end. The flavor fades quickly like fruit stripe gum. Not much of a malt backbone or anything really besides the grapefruit up front

M: Very intense smooth feel up front but the sensation fades quickly and there is nothing there after the initial tingle.

O: Not a bad IPA but nothing no write home about. The upfront flavor and look of the beer offers a lot of promise but certain aspects are lacking

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

This beer poured out as a cloudy copper color with a white white on top. The retention and lacing aren't too bad on this beer. There is a ton of flakey sediment in this beer also. The smell of the beer has a pretty good hoppy aroma with some mild malt. The taste of the beer bitter with an earthy malt backbone with more earthy hop flavors throughout this beer. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with a high amount of carbonation. Overall it's an average IPA at best. Not something I'd run out to buy again though.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Poured into a pint glass.

A: Cloudy orange-brown with lots of huge particles and a three-finger, off-white, creamy head that lasted a long time. Great lacing.

S: Citrus hops. Very mild though.

T: Light sweetness and moderate to high bitterness. Citrus hops.

M: Medium bodied with fizzy carbonation. Very smooth due to the obvious lack of filtering. I like smooth.

O: I think this beer would have benefited from a bit more hops and a bit more alcohol. Pretty good though.

Daddy Fat Sacks IPA

Tastes more like a Double IPA than a true American IPA. Has more of a malty taste than I was expecting. Nice Hazy Orange, with some light citrus notes. Lacks the true Hoppy Pop I look for in an American IPA. Still an above average brew and a nice 7.5ABV for the price.
