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.

Thanks to gn0sis for the nice extra!

Pours cloudy yellow with a big head receding to about 1.5 fingers and great lacing.

Smells of citrus times 11. Some doughy malt and earthy hops also. Very interesting unique smell.

Loads of grapefruit in the flavor. Some really grainy malt at the front end along with the grapefruit. A soapy floral flavor is left lingering on the back of the tongue. Not a ton of malt in this one. Very hop forward and bitter.

Mouthfeel is fairly light with good carbonation levels.

This brewery wasn't even on my radar until I opened the box. I really enjoyed this one and look forward to having their other beer as well. I love a good grapefruit flavor in my IPA's.

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.

3.71/5  rDev -5.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

A: Hazy, light yellow straw color. Clearly an unfiltered example, with lots of sediment floating about. Healthy head, more than two fingers worth. Strong and foamy throughout the tasting.

S: Grapefruit, some other citrus overtones there as well, mostly lemon. Maybe orange as well?

T: Think IPA fresca. The fruit is quite strong with this beer, and I don't detect much of the "darker" flavors like pine. The hops impart a lot of astringency to this beer. It's not unpleasant, but certainly can't be described as optimally balanced. A nice drinking IPA, but I might not seek it out again.

M: The mouthfeel is a bit like the Sacred Cow IPA from Arbor Brewing. Quite smooth, but thick from sediment.

O: This reminds me of a well-done unfiltered homebrew IPA. Nothing against Blatant, it's quite good, but it's a less refined type of IPA.

3.53/5  rDev -9.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

A - Pours hazy straw yellow. Aggressive pour but not much oh a head. Wonderful lacing throughout.

S - Lemon, can't get past that.

T - Light malt, more bitterness from hops than flavor. Bottled date was blank, so not sure how old it is.

M - Medium body, the bitterness lightens the body.

O - Not bad, but not something I would need to go out of my way for. I'd like to try one on tap or a bottle that I can be assured is less than 6 months old.
