American IPA |  6.20% ABV

Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
The generous addition of hops both during and at the end of the fermentation process (dry-hopping) gives our India Pale Ale its characteristic bitterness and piney citrus aroma and flavor. The medium body, crisp finish, and moderate alcohol and IBU levels makes this one of America’s most drinkable and best-selling IPAs.

Bought at Total Wines & More in Claymont, DE as part of a make-your-own 6-pack. I'm new so I haven't heard of the brewery so I gave it a try.

A: Used to IPAs that are darker and redder in color, so I was surprised at how orange and golden it was. Also, the head was thin with very little sustain, which as also a disappointment

S: There were a good bit of citrusy hoppiness, though not what I expect from an IPA

T: The was the a little bite from the hops, but not the bitterness or penetrance of an IPA. The malt, bitter, and acid are well balanced because all of these aspects are equally weak. The balance is nice, but not the punch of a real IPA

M: The beer was a little thinner than I would've liked but it had a decent palate, pleasant carbonation, and smoothness

D: The thinness of this beer betrays the higher than average ABV so it's easy not to think about this when glugging this beer. But this softness on the palate also makes for a very drinkable beer that isn't overpowering and tiring

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a Dogfish Spiegelau glass. Label says JAN 14 14.

A- Pours a light amber color with a 1/2 inch off-white head that retains well before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a full sheet of surface foam. Somewhat resilient lacing streaks down the glass.

S- Hoppy aroma with citrus notes of grapefruit and lemon zest. Trailing malt sweetness.

T- Starts off decent with a moderate amount of bitterness but soon washes away to some stale bready malt and a weak aftertaste. After that, it's just an uneventful ride to the bottom of the glass. One-sided hop character and a teasing bitterness that's gone as soon as you taste it. Drinkable? Yes. Exciting? Not the least bit.

M- Thin, almost watery but with enough carbonation to not be a total failure. Lightish body.

O- Though it's not as horrible as the score would lead you to believe, there's not much here for someone who's used to more potent and lively IPAs. This will be my beer for guests for the next couple of weeks.
