Notes/Commercial Description:
Blatant IPA is reminiscent of those hoppy beers brewed by our West Coast friends, but represents the enormous pride we have in our East Coast roots. Full of hops and a subtle cereal grain backbone, this definitively BLATANT brew will demand the attention of the senses: the aroma, the flavor, the finish. Don’t look any further, this is the IPA you’re looking for.

I had this on draft last night at the Union Brewhouse in Weymouth after I got out of work.

Appearance: The beer poured a one finger head and left some nice lacing on the glass. Pale orange straw color, slightly hazy, and some signs of carbonation.

Smell: Very citrusy like tangerine and grapefruit. There are also hints of biscuit. Towards the back you slightly get pine and sweet malts.

Taste: Same as smell, but not too overpowering. Bitterness towards the end is little too much and lasts too long. They need to use some more sweet malts to balance off the bitterness. Too much for my taste buds.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, medium carbonation, full bodied, and a little chewy.

Overall: Good start for a new brewery. Happy to see the Brewhouse got one of their first kegs. Will be getting more of their pints in the future.

Serving type: on-tap

A - Arrived at the table with a thin head. The color is a bright straw yellow. Not really typical for an IPA. Quite hazy in color and with nice lacing, but the extreme lightness in color made me wonder whether I was, in fact, looking at an IPA.

S - Nice strength. I am immediately wondering what hops are used in this beer, because it's all citrus. No pine. No tropical. All lemon. Still wondering if I'm looking at an IPA.

T - And there's the lemon. There is something else buried in the lemon that I've had before, but can't define. It's a bit of an off flavor. Really light cereal/crackery type malt. Mild bitterness.

M - On the light side of medium-bodied. Refreshing. I like a bit more substance out of my IPAs.

O - Blatant may have put together an IPA that is accessible to a broader summer market. It's not the IPA that I was looking for, but I could see how some people would like it. The lemon really was shockingly present to me and I'm surprised that only one of the recent reviewers described it as such.

look: 2.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Orangey apricot, hazy and full of particulate matter. Orangey beige head of thick lumpy froth that lingers long, leaving large bubbles and lace up the glass.

Aroma of ripe fruit, cotton candy, and bubble gum. Flavors of honey malt, fruit, toffee, punctuated by firm bitterness, flavors full of orange rind and grapefruit, some piney notes emerging in the finish. Moderate mouthfeel. Decent beer, but would like more depth and hops.

Serving type: bottle
