Municipal IPA is is an all-Cascade ale, giving it a tangy aroma and citrusy flavor. Resiny, yet refreshing.

Local. Crisp. Simple label. Aftertaste is smoother than the actual taste. Would get again but wouldn't hunt down.

Doesn't really stand out much from anything I've had to drink IPA wise.

On tap at Miller's, into a shaker
A: bright rich amber, thin off-white head that leaves some nice lacing
S: medium nose: bready and caramel malts, nice balance between floral and piney hop notes
T: again, well balanced that follows the nose, though I get a bit more citrus on the back end.
M: maybe the best part of this beer: medium to high carbonation, fairly light mouthful but still substantial flavors. Very quaffable.

Overall: a good choice that I would drink again. In a sea of IPAs, it doesn't distinguish itself, at all. Taken on its own, though, it's good.

Ripe tropical melon with a bready backbone and floral notes. The hops are the star here, and this beer allows them to take control without leaving the beer unbalanced. At 6%+ this is very sessionable.
