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.

3.33/5  rDev +2.1%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Appearance: Very light for an IPA. It's almost like a hefe. Good foam though.

Smell: Bitter hops and some pine. Seemed like they are definitely going with a Northwest theme.

Taste/Mouthfeel: Pretty subdued, but still balanced with pine and citrus hops. Just enough malt to balance. Good mouthfeel, though a bit thin.

Overall Drinkability: I would rank this as a middle-of-the-road IPA.

Serving type: on-tap

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

Appearance: golden with a thin head. No lacing. Little yeast sediment in bottom of bottle.

Smell: Not very much aroma.

Taste: Hop dominated. Hops are bitter and tar-like. Very little malt flavor

Mouthfeel: Carbonation is sufficient for style. Bitterness from hops lingers in mouth for quite a while.

Overall: meh. Not well balanced. Bitter with a long finish.

Serving type: bottle

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

Served on tap during a brewery tour at the Portsmouth location.

Appearance: Amber color with white head that did not last long.

Smell: Hops, not very potent like have come to expect from IPAs.

Mouthfeel/Taste: Medium to light bodied and well balanced. Kinda bland for an IPA, I expected more, almost slightly watered down.

Overall: A little diappointed with this one. Guess I am used to heavier IPAs now. Good starter IPA for those just getting into IPAs.

Serving type: on-tap
