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.

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!

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.75

A: Rustic orange with a fair clarity and a medium sense of effervesce within. The head is foamy and large, peanut shell colored, porous, with a fair rate of retention. Large, spongy dabs of lace with a modest coverage. Good overall.

S: Sweet sugary grains, sugar coated fresh grapefruit. Citrus, stalky with a fair strength.

T: Flavor is sweet upfront, small toasted nature, turning to aa musky, old stale citrus of hops. Seems to be turning. The sweetness in the beginning is almost intoreable. The hops do seem to get a little better and tolerable with depth, but honestly seem to be a bit sour and old, stale, with a very flat line of complexity.

M: Ok carbonation, some alcohol laced stale citrus/lime with a warmth of alcohol.

O: Overall feels a bit old, musky, overally sweet at first, with a coarse helping of hops that dont seem to blend well, very rough around the edges, not particularly tasty, just rough. Pass, no bottling info, maybe an old can? Could be better on draft? Roll the dice on a single, dont bet on a sixpack, craps.
