Notes/Commercial Description:
Misty Mountain is a great example of the American-style India Pale Ale synonymous with Craft Beer. Originally brewed for sailors on shipping routes between England and India, British IPAs are known for their strong hop bitterness, which were added as a preservative for the long voyage. The American adaptation is decidedly stronger and offers a more robust hop bite. Back East IPA is no exception. This assertively hopped beer has a great hoppy aroma, crisp hop bite, and smooth medium body.

12oz can. Pours a murky brownish orange with an inch of head. Lots of lacing. Smells of toffee, caramel, lemon and cut grass. Malty aroma for an IPA. The taste is much like the aroma. Malt forward with a lot of sweet toffee and caramel flavor. Some grassy and floral hop notes as well. Caramel malts at the finish. Medium bodied. Damn drinkable IPA in a can that is perfect for summer. Overall, sweet and malty IPA that's a nice change of pace. Worth grabbing again.

Serving type: can

12 ounce can.

w/o any freshness/canning date info

Pours hazed medium amber. Loose off white head and leaving decent looking rings and strands of lace.

On the nose its pine hops.

Respectable IPA, I get mostly pine and resin in the decent but not outstanding brew.

Growler from Brewery: This one pours a fairly clear coppery color. There was a small off white head that left some lacing. Nice hop nose. Pine and citrus dominate. The taste is very good. It has a good hop bite. Mainly citrus and pine flavors, with a decent malt body behind it. Nicely balanced.

12 oz. can poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Surprisingly dark amber body. Nice white head. Small collar and a wispy surface.

Smell - Estery and a little yeasty. Sweet doughy malts. A little bit of citrus hop. Doesn't smell like an IPA.

Taste - Quite sweet. Resiny pine hop. Again with the doughy malts. A touch of grain. Fruity estery finish.

Mouthfeel - Too sweet. Medium body. High carbonation.

Overall - This is an IPA? What? This was so boss...like boss hog, lol.
