Not a big IPA fan unfortunately. But still something I could drink on occasion.

I found this to be a very average IPA. I love the hop but this one didn't live up to the hype. As I write this, I'm sitting at the brewery, 6 feet from the tap. It is just an average beer. What a bummer. Their Galaxy High Imperial IPA is much more in line with what I expected. It's a very good beer. Psychopathy is just average.

Much thanks to my friends Richard and Alanna for grabbing me this brew.

A: Pale yellow straw in color, with good clarity and a nice amount of white rocky head on top.

S: Pine and grapefruit peel with small notes of orange peel as well. There may even be a hint of lemon balm in there. Nice super clean hoppy smell, not a lot as far as caramel sweetness. Smells nice.

T: Clean bitterness with grapefruit being the predominant flavor. Some pine and light citrus. Not a lot as far as a malt profile goes.

M: Fairly light body, in fact a little too light. There is a nice dryness to it, but leaves the mouth wanting a bit of gravity. There is a slight oily feel from the hops and certainly an assertive bitterness.

O: The alcohol is in there somewhere, but it isn't too obvious. For me the flavor is a little one note, it's hoppy, and that's about it. It's bordering on a little watery for me, and the lack of malt flavor makes it seem like a one trick pony.

Didn't seem all that special to me. Tasted a lot of other hoppy IPA's and this just seems to blend in with the crowd.

12oz can poured into an Idle Hands tulip. No date on can.

A - Pours a neutral amber color with excellent clarity. A firm pour into the center of the glass yields a thick finger of frothy white head with very good staying power. Sheets of lacing left all over the sides of the glass. Good looking beer.

S - A bit buttery, very earthy, malty sweetness, caramel malt, a bit grassy...not what I was expecting. Hops are very muted overall.

T - Buttery, caramelly malt base. Clean bitter hops at a medium intensity and lingering thru the finish. A bit metallic too. Touches of pine are there, but really lacking in hop presence.

M - Medium body, medium carbonation. Hoppy bitterness in the middle lingering thru the finish.

O - Not sure how old this can is...I'm guessing it is not the freshest can around. Probably not giving this beer a fair shake. Would like to try again to see what a fresh can is all about...this one just has a dull IPA flavor that is lacking in hop character and not that impressive.
