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

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.
