Very malty IPA. Quite well balanced, to me. Not an in-your-face blast of hoppiness, but exceptionally tasty and easy to drink. Maybe more of an American Pale Ale, than an IPA.

I could drink this all day long.

First Cast – IPA (6.5%) - Elevation Brewing Co. (Colorado)
☆☆☆

App: Squash gold with a slightly off white head, settling to thin bubbles on top and around the rim. Some lacing. Very clear. Tiny bubbles from the bottom.

Smell: Aroma is typical. Mild citrus character and some tropical fruit aromas. Hints of pineapple. Malt aromas very low, lending only the slightest grainy sweetness. A stab of pepper.

Taste: Hops dominate this beer from start to finish. Foretaste is delicately sweet with a little lemon. Transitions from fruity sweetness to more pronounced, resinous, bitterness. Like its kin Little Mo', a lurking alcohol flavor detracts from some good flavors. Not overpoweringly bitter; not particularly forward in flavor. Comfortably piney. Overall balanced.

Mouth: Solidly medium bodied with pleasant smoothness and light-to-moderate carbonation, allowing hops flavors to linger on the palate.

Home tasting, 16.9oz bottle into Snifter. 10/8/14.

Well balanced with banana notes and a nice hop finish.
