Notes/Commercial Description:
Battlefield is a special India Pale Ale that is as aggressive as it's name: well-hopped and packed with rich maltiness. A stellar balance of crisp bitterness and floral aromas, achieved by a god-like blend of English and American hops. We like to think it puts a spin on what you know about IPAs. Try it with beef dishes or any grilled/blackened meats, shrimp or light fish, and for a snack pair with strong cheeses.

2.6/5  rDev -31.6%
look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

A fairly bland IPA. Dominated by hops, but with little depth behind them. Appearance was fine, smell pretty good, mouthfeel unremarkable, and overall just fine, but nothing to go back for. However, I would happily drink it again if offered. There wasn't anything bad about it, but it seems to have been made as a basic beer to offer people year-round, and it does that. I guess I might consider it an IPA made for a city of Bud drinkers. Perhaps appropriate, but not great.

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.

look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

A - This beer is a rich golden hue with a healthy finger or two of head that stays.

S - The smell is citrusy and makes me think of cascade and columbus hops. The clean hop aroma is very pleasing to a hophead like myself and gets my saliva flowing prior to tasting this IPA.

T - The taste follows the smell. The hop flavor on the front end is fresh and clean and, while prevalent, not overwhelming. Caramel notes are present and pair with the hop blend extremely well. The finish on this beer is clean and does not leave a bitter taste unlike many IPAs.

M - The feel is best described as rich and creamy without being heavy at all.

O - This is definitely my favorite beer of Avondale's and my go to IPA when out and about, or in their tasting room. A good session IPA in my book and also a good choice for the citrus hop lover or the hoppy pale ale fan.
