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.

Pours Golden color. 1 finger head, that dissipated quickly. Smells wonderfully hoppy and clean. Has a good medium mouthfeel. Has a pretty clean taste too it and has some bitterness, but really not all that bitter, i expected a bit more out of an IPA. I like it, but then again im just now getting into IPAs and im still not loving overly hopped beers. Even with that I thought i would be getting a bit more out of this one...but still has a good flavor, just not too much going on here. I am abit suprised to see the abv on this is 6.5% though, feels much less.

Pours a hazy deep golden color with a creamy and bubbly white head that fades into a patchy and sticky lace. Nose is sweet and quite floral with notes of fresh malts and honey. Taste is almost too sweet at first followed by some bitter hops notes, however, more hops are needed. Fairly light in body with a crisp and dry finish. A decent beer, but there are many superior IPAs to be had.

A: Golden translucent amber, good amount of carbonation and about a fingers worth of head that dissappated fairly quickly and left a little film of head on top. Head clings to the glass after sips.

S: A little bit of hops, not getting a ton of smell, nothing really of note.

T: Citrus hops, are present but not overbearing. Not bad but not really notable.

M: Smooth, a little bit of carbonation.

D: Tastes are subdued, but still good, I could definitely go through a couple of these, but 6.5% abv would make me think twice. Good beer, just not great.
