There is nothing rude about this IPA. The beer pours a golden brown and smells like summer citrus. This IPA starts off crisp and slightly sweet on the palate, but the citrusy bitter hops catch up on the back end. This is a warm weather IPA that is made for a session in the sun since it doesn't have a particularly high alcohol content. Grab some if you have a chance, because you won't regret it.

On tap at the brewery taproom today.

The beer pours an orange amber color with good head retention and lacing. The beer looks nice enough, but then I stuck my beak in my sampler glass. Mama mia!!! I pick up an outrageous nose of dank earth, skunky marijuana, pine and dry citrus. In a 5.8% abv. IPA, the nose on this bad boy is flat out amazing. Not surprisingly, the flavor profile doesn't match up with the nose, though it's not bad. There isn't nearly as much pine or dank earth, but otherwise the beer delivers plenthy of hoppy goodness in a dry, slightly lean, West Coast IPA style. There's a kiss of sweet malt as well, which IMHO is just enough to carry the amount of bitterness this beer delivers, giving it something of a citrusy finish. Mouthfeel is medium bodied at most, with a long, bitter, lightly pine infused finish.

This is a very well crafted IPA from this "new to me" brewery. Impressive.

Thanks to pwnzilla, who is quickly climbing the good trader charts on the maximum12 exchange, for a growler of this beer. 64 oz. growler split with Yulles on a school night. What was I thinking?

Pour is a lovely clear IPA gold, right down to the last couple ounces of the growler. The smell, oh, the smell. One of those IPAs that you just want to clutch & sniff. Tons of citrus & pine & bitterness coming off the surface.

Rude Parrot brings a good game to the table tennis match. Just like the nose, lovely citrus suffuses the taste buds, along with gentle floral notes & a modicum of bitter slappiness. Not at all balanced - thank you. Thirty-two ounces went down in a ridiculously easy manner, sliding away with a pleasant after effect.

Another West Coast winner. Smells & drinkability are the highlights here, & this is a clear winner. Excellent beer.

16oz CAN, great dane imperial pint

Read some nice things about this and reluctantly purchased a single - I really thought the DIPA (Ballz Deep) was more offensive as a beer than a name. Pretty cool can - really beautiful IPA too - glowing orange, sticky creamy lace. Smells of nice fresh citrus and pineapple - tastes mighty fine too, light and fresh without a bitterness overload. Bright tropical flavors - good stuff.

Big light tan head quickly falls and settles into a nice big lacing above a thick caramel straw colored beer.

Sweet caramel grain malts under a citrus and pine hops make for a very nice aroma.

Pine, citrus, and grassy hops taste with some of the sweet caramel malts coming through as well.

A dryish aftertaste with some sweet grains and light hops attributes sticking around with this medium bodied beer.

A pretty balanced IPA with some of the malt characteristics coming through but not overwhelming any of the citrusy hops that this beer harbors.

Poured from 16oz tall can into a pint glass.

Appearance: murky orange hue with a strong effervescence and a fair number of chunks floating around. Head poured a thick finger of frothy ivory foam and stuck around for a good long time with a fair amount clinging to the glass. Nice.

Smell: very fruity hop aroma with a rich malt underneath. There are notes of tangerine, pears and grapefruit in there. On the sweet side, but I rather like it.

Taste: grapefruity and quite bitter right up front, then mellowing out to the sweeter malt and more of that tangerine character. The finish has plenty of bitterness as well, but it is smooth and not raspy. Quite good.

Mouthfeel: medium-light body with a huge creaminess, especially for the style. Love it.

Overall: this is a darn good IPA, especially with respect to its texture. I could drink quite a lot of it.

On draught at The Swiss, served in a shaker, Rude Parrot is a clear orange with a super tight, creamy off-white head that looks like it was poured with nitro, which it wasn't. Long lasting, it leaves nice foamy lace rings.

Smell is dank! This beer reeks like pot big time, that cat piss aroma you get from centennials.

Taste is pretty good, a bit of sweetness from the hops, mangos, and not overly bitter, but balanced. Not getting much malt character, although that suits me fine.

Mouthfeel is on the drier side, with a medium light body.

Drinkability is pretty good, a nice little citrusy IPA without much bitterness or malt heft.

Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours medium coppery amber with a half finger slightly off-white head with great retention and lacing. Aroma of tropical fruit, grapefruit, citrus hops and light sweet malt. Flavor of pine and citrus hops, light stone fruit and sweet malt. Finishes with citrus and lightly herbal hops. Very nice medium, moderately creamy body. A very pleasant West Coast IPA and the second enjoyable beer I've had from this local brewery (I really liked their IIPA even better.
