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.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Pours an even light to moderate gold with a good amount of carbonation and head.
Smell: Upon pouring, a very citrusy characterization of the hop profile. A little bit of a grainy aroma in there as well. Clean
Taste: Unlike other IPAs, the hops are not as straight-forward but are present, balanced by grainy, bready malts. Hops are grassy with a little citrus. Not a lot of hop bitterness. Aftertaste lingers for a while.
Mouthfeel: Medium feel but maybe a tad light for the IPA style.
Overall- probably more of a stronger APA than an IPA in my opinion. Nonetheless, not a bad beer.

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

Pours a pale gold with a big, dense, foamy head that has good retention. The nose is lightly malty with a big citrusy, piny aroma. The flavor opens up with some faint malt, bread and grapefruit but is then quickly overcome by big, spicy, bitey, piny, earthy hops. The bitterness lingers on the palate for a while. The mouthfeel is light to medium bodied and crisp with good carbonation.

The flavor here is rather one dimensional and unbalanced. I think some more malt backbone would help. Overall though, it's very drinkable and ultimately enjoyable. It's just not as flavorful and balanced as I would have liked.
