Avery distro rep was picthing their beers at a shop when I was there earlier today and he tossed me an IPA and a Rascal to check out, why not?
a - opened the bottle and filled my captain lawrence taster tulip. Poured a transparent orange yellow with a thin head and light carbonation. Looks a bit thin. Decent lacing.
s - Nice soft citric hops. A pinch of eartiness and a dab of bitterness. A bit sweaty/sticky, but not much.
t - Much like the nose, this is a soft flavor. Soft citric hops, even balanced malt presence. Finishes a pinch bittery.
m - Light bodied, easy drinker...not in your face hops, not offensive bitterness. Nice cross-over IPA for the non-craft drinker. Subtle.
o - Overall this is a pretty subtle IPA. The hops are not in your face and the bitterness is very subtle and not offensive as well. There is no bottled on date, but I imagine it don't get much fresher than a sample from the distributor trying to sell product? Pretty good though and a bit candied in the flavor dept. This would be a good introductory IPA.
