Cerveceria Mexicana "DOA IPA"
330 ml / 11.2 oz. brown glass bottle, "BEST BEFORE 021015AFL 08:49"
$1.99 @ Total Wine & More, Cherry Hill, NJ

First thoughts: So this is a Mexican beer... hecho in Mexico!... do they sell this there or is this just a contract brew that's then exported to the U.S.? Secondly, how did this label get approved? I thought that "India Pale Ale" had to be spelled out nowadays? Maybe I'm just thinking of Pennsylvania, and not Federal label rulings. Also, pretty cool label and packaging overall - I cannot deny that I was drawn in by the artwork, but at least the beer is good so I don't have to feel bad about getting suckered.

Moving forward, this is a very American-style IPA that's bright,hoppy, and bitter. It looks good, it smells good, and it tastes good - no faults there. It's floral, citrusy, leafy, resinous, subtly piney, and somewhat grassy and spicy. The malt is firm, and biscuity/toasty. It's got a solid bitterness that's around 60 IBU's or more, and it's nicely balanced. There are certainly better examples of the style, but this is enjoyable as well.

Clear copper color. ¼ inch head of an off-white color. Good retention and good lacing. Smells of pale malt, caramel malt, earthy malt, citrus hops, pine, and hint of alcohol. Mouth feel is smooth and clean, with an average carbonation level. Fits the style of an American ipa. Tastes of citrus hops, pine, sweet malt, pale malt, hint of earthy malt, and a hint of alcohol. Overall, an average AIPA.

Slight amber color with a little head when pout. Very clear as well. Slight smell of hop. Taste of hop was obvious, but not over powering? Not as bitter as some other IPAs going down. Overall a decent beer, but not one that I would hunt for. Although the Day of the Dead company name is as cool.as it gets.

2.99/5  rDev -3.9%

Appearance - Pours a cloudy golden amber almost orange, with a 1/2 inch thick white foamy head.

Smell - Slight hoppy aroma with hints of citrus and pine.

Taste - Very smooth, with slight bitterness. Well balanced hop selection. Malt heavy on the finish with hints of pine and citrus, same as aroma.

Mouthfeel - Easy light mouthfeel, wet on the palate at first with a semi dry finish.

Overall - This is an ok IPA. I would drink again.

Served in a tumbler.

Never thought I'd be excited to finally find a single of this, but the completionist in me sometimes takes too much control for my liking. Regardless, this stuff pours a clear tawny amber topped by a finger of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises sweet caramel, light menthol, pine resin, and a twinge of green tea. The taste brings in more of the same, the sweetness in the caramel accentuating the resin and menthol characters. Unfortunately, this seemingly synergistic combination just ends up wreaking havoc with my tastebuds, nothing much good coming from the experience. The body is a light-leaning medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a slightly syrupy feel. Overall, this IPA just didn't do it for me, especially with that damn menthol character.
