American IPA |  6.70% ABV

Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
A beautiful copper brew ripe with citrus aroma from legendary American Cascade hops. The nice, initial hop bite fades to reveal the perfect subtleties of a well-rounded India Pale Ale. Notice hints of orchard fruit crispness that will leave the palate begging for more.

On tap @ Irish Pub, Lewisburg

A- pours a slightly hazy copper color with a small creamy white head that retains nicely, leaving some thick lacing behind

S- tropical and citrus fruit hop blend mixes with some doughy malt aroma, with a hint of pine at the end

T- mango and guava flavors up front mix with a slight citrus bitterness, balanced out by a big bready malt backbone, slightly sweet finish

M- medium body with medium prickly carbonation leads to a super creamy mouthfeel and ends in a smooth silky finish

O- nice tropical and citrus notes, although a little raw around the edges. Would prefer a little less bready malt presence so that the hops can shine, but still has high drinkability

My local brewery/brew pup. Appearance has some hope haze but not too bad.

Smell is...off. almost a sour-ish that I can't put my finger on.

Taste is okay, not very strong hop profile, which I love in a good ipa.

Great mouthfeel for me. Clean but without the resin I love (damn you head hunter!!!)

Overall, as much as I love to support local beers and breweries, this brewery has never done it for me. I have tried almost all of their beers and yet to order more than one when I have. I want to like and support this brewery, yet every time I drink a beer I feel let dow . Sorry MBC, but there are better beers for my money. But I will keep trying, hopefully one day something clicks.

Truthfully, I think I had a bad keg. This beer just wasnt good.

Zach Morgan's Pale Ale

Pours a cloudy gold . Good smelling beer full of lemon citrus, pine and herb . Cascade hops all day which are present right away in the aroma. In the taste, lemon zest and grass. Creamy malt. Bready and bitter, quite floral. Body is medium, medium carbonation. A refreshing summer option, I could easily have a few of these, no problem.
