I am now committed to reducing, if not eradicating, my backlog of bottles. This one came out of the cooler at The Friendly Greek Bottle Shop.

From the bottle: "Beer to Die For"; "We chose to use these balanced rocks for our label to symbolize the balanced nature of our IPA. These sculptures are known as Inukshuks and are erected to represent hope, friendship and hospitality. While we want it to symbolize how balanced our IPA is, we also really like that Inukshuks symbolize hope, friendship and hospitality as well. Why not have an Inukshuk represent both concepts? O'Dempsey's Inukshuk IPA combines a bitter hop bite and citrus notes with a huge amlt backbone to achieve a balancing act for your senses. Enjoy." Too much repetition.

My gosh, it is humid today! I am sweating, the bottle is sweating, I don't know what it takes to cool down at this point. I popped the cap, began an uncaring pour that I only cared about when it threatened to overflow the glass, and then backed off. The pseudo-cascade produced about three fingers of rocky, tawny head that teetered and tottered and then fell like Humpty Dumpty in a big crash. I will say, though, that the resulting lacing was fabulous. Color was a deep, dark-gold (SRM = > 7, < 9) with NE-quality clarity and while I wish that I could tell you that this summoned Midas, Mammon and Croesus, I can't. You see, given an afternoon of golden AIPAs, they NEVER left! The nose had a very biscuit malt character, so I am unconvinced that this is an AIPA. Mouthfeel was medium and the malt was really the guiding light in this one. It should either be changed to an EIPA or suffer according scores when reviewed as an AIPA. Mouthfeel was thin-to-medium. The flavor was more towards biscuit malt with just enough hops to give it a mild tang on the tongue. I just found this to be profoundly boring, as long as it is identified as an AIPA.

Clear yellow in color. Forms a moderate sized white head. Decent retention. Moderate lacing. Aroma is a mixture of pale and light caramel malts along with some lighter citrus hops. May be a touch of citrus zest. Taste is more of the same. Light sweetness with an appreciable, but not overbearing malty backbone. Sweet citrus and sweet orange hops. There is a mild green apple jolly-rancher quality to the beer as well. On the lighter side of medium in body. Lighter bitterness. Moderate carbonation. A fairly average, run-of-the-mill IPA.
