Notes/Commercial Description:
The Battlefield IPA is a new twist on an American India Pale Ale. Our master blend of west coast hops and the finest American and European malt distinguishes itself from many IPAs on the battlefield. A hoppy citrus and floral nose invites you to experience the perfectly balanced IPA. The natural bouquet of our hop blend and malt gives this IPA a victory all its own. You will agree the battle has been won when you reward yourself with our outstanding spin on the IPA.

Served on tap in a flute (weird glass choice - but it worked OK). Light to medium golden colored body with a nearly two-finger off-white head. Decent retention and lacing.

Understated aroma that consists of primarily citrus notes followed by light pine and floral notes. Very small note of caramel malt.

Tasty flavor that follows the aroma. Good blend of citrus hop flavors over a solid malt base. The pine aroma becomes a bit lighter in the flavor and the floral notes are also more in the background.

Medium texture in the mouthfeel and very drinkable. Very solid IPA and one I could see as a regular in my rotation if it were available in my neck of the woods.

Draft in a standard pint glass from Johnny Brusco's in Jasper, AL. Absolutely no head, but that could be due to a bad pour. Very cloudy pale color. Practically no aroma- likely due to a poor pour. Fairly aggressive bitterness with little hop flavor. Very lackluster- one dimensional. Not awful, but extremely mediocre. There are no elements that one normally finds (and seeks) in IPAs- no citrus, no earthiness, no "dankness", no nothing. However, I'd much rather have this than fizzy yellow stuff. So there's that, I guess... There are much better beers (and specifically IPAs) that call Alabama home. Nothing to see here.
