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.

3.53/5  rDev +8.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Copper red crystal clear appearance with a two finger sized head and lively carbonation. Good head retention and decent lacing. The smell is grassy, musty, and indistinct with a hint of roasted malt, and is is way too faint for an IPA. Taste is also leaning a bit too heavily towards malt. It is nutty, biscuit like, mildly sour with only a medium helping of hops. The hops that are there are also aromatic, citric types, with not much bitterness. Not too shabby for a pale ale or a bitter, but not really in on par with most beers in the American IPA style. Mouthfeel is medium thick with a decent strength. This is a balanced English style pale ale, that makes a good session beer, but lacks that certain oomph to push it over the edge of mediocrity.

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

Purchased from one of the local quick marts.

A: A slightly cloudy golden with moderate head and retention.

S: Mild notes of hops, pine and citrus.

T: Same as the smell. Mild yet well balanced.

M: Clean and crisp. Goes down easy.

O: A good intro IPA. Not for the hop sadist though. It was the first IPA I ever had and works well in that capacity. Nice to revisit but probably won't buy again.
