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.

Brew date of January 2, 2013

Appearance - Pours a hazy golden orange with a finger width head, sub-par retention, and a layer of microbubbles that spots the surface. Spotty lacing.

Smell - Aroma is floral with lesser citrus notes, and plays nicely off a slightly toasted bread malt undertone.

Taste - Sweet bready malts and faint hints of caramel to start, supported by a soft floral and mild orange pith bitterness that hit mid-taste and fight the malts for supremacy well into the finish.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied. Nicely carbonated. A touch buttery at first, but finishes semi-dry.

Overall - Once upon a time this was one of my favorite IPA's... Oh how things have changed. Fairly weak in the hops department, in fact it's almost probably a touch more malty than it is hoppy. Red Hook might wanna consider rebranding this beer as a dry-hopped pale ale, because it doesn't cut it anymore in today's hop-heavy IPA world... then again, without that 'IPA' moniker, it might not sell as well.
