An American IPA with big malt character giving perfect balance to the abundance of Pacific Northwest hops. Hopheads won't be disappointed. This beer was released for our 1st Anniversary celebration at the pub, then quickly became a year round favorite (cans and draft) 7.5% alc by vol. and ~75 IBU's

$2.25 tall boy can from Abe's.

Crystal clear copper, topped by two level fingers of slightly off-white micro bubbles. Good lacing.

Grapefruit aroma with a touch of orange and peach.

Big extra sweet malt foundation. An orchard of juicy fruit. Bitter finish, not a bite, but a slow lingering that outlasts everything else.

Satisfactory mouthfeel with a bit of prickliness.

A satisfying, solid IPA.

Old Forge Overbite IPA
16 oz. can, no apparent freshness dating
$2.69 @ Beer Heaven, Philadelphia, PA

Appearance: Clear deep amber body with a bit of an orange-ish cast. Creamy off-white head. Head retention and lacing are good.

Aroma: Hoppy! Citrus (grapefruit, tangerine) and light pine. Somewhat floral as well.

Taste: As expected, hoppy but balanced by a nice, golden-caramel malt base. Solidly bitter. Dry finish with fading, grassy hops.

Mouthfeel: Medium-full body. Gently crisp carbonation.

Overall: A pretty impressive IPA. It's not so much what it is, as what it isn't. It isn't overdone with hops, and the malt base is kept straight-forward. Nicely balanced and well-rounded.

Poured out of can into snifter. I knew nothing of this brewey beforehand. No date on can, bummer. I was a littler leary of buying an IPA w/o a date. I got lucky! It did not taste old at all - quite fresh. Great hop aroma (citrus and mostly pine). Flavor is that of other fresh IPAs. Firm bitterness and great hop flavor. Mouthfeel is perfect, not too thin and not too heavy. I'm drinking this as my first beer of the day and I am pleasantly surpised. Go out and try some!

A big thanks goes out to woodychandler for this beer. Poured from a 16 oz. can. Has a brown/orange color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of hops, some citrus. Taste is well balanced, hops, malts, some citrus, easy drinking. Feels full bodied in the mouth and overall is a quality beer.
