1.3/5  rDev -58.2%

12 oz bottle. Pours slightly hazy golden orange with a big creamy white head that retains well and laces the glass.

The aroma is sweet butterscotch malts and maybe a little grassy hop.

The flavor is sweet butterscotch with bitter metallic hops and maybe a little fruit. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with low carbonation and a bit watery.

Overall, a butterscotch metallic mess. The worst IPA I've ever had. I did finish it, so it wasn't so vile that I dumped it...I guess it has that going for it.

12 oz bottle, undated, from World Market served in a lager glass.

Pours a deep amber color with a generous bone-colored head that leaves plenty of soapy lacing on the glass. Excellent retention. Appears to have high carbonation.

Aroma: citrusy hops are prominent, but a strong sweet malt base is there too. Above average appeal but, perhaps, below average complexity.

T: Contrary to my suspicions (based in part on their pale ale) this is sufficiently hoppy to be rightfully called an IPA. the finish and aftertaste, but bitterness and hops, with something of a hop hit mid-taste, but with an acceptably restrained, moderate bitterness in the aftertaste.

Feel: Medium bodied with medium-high carbonation; smooth.

Overall: a good IPA from Mexican; who would have guessed?

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.

Note: Looking at my packaging, and this beers website, it looks like there a 2 listings on here for the same beer. Poured from a brown 11.2 oz. bottle. Has a dark golden/orange color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is mild, hops, a touch of citrus. Taste is light, balanced, a mild bitterness, kind of toned down for the style. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall us a decent beer, but if you are looking for a hop bomb, this ain't it.

3/5  rDev -3.5%

Pours out a hazy golden color with plenty of carbonation floating up to the top. The head is about one finger thick, white and very fluffy surrounded by thick ring of lacing.
The aroma is light, citrusy and fruity but lacking the hop smell that I’ve come to expect from IPAs.
The taste is a bit different, good but very zesty at first then the bitterness kicks in, mild grapefruit zest fills the taste throughout your drinking experience. The aftertaste good, slightly bitter with a good hops presence and a mild alcohol taste.
Overall not a bad IPA.

DOA IPA has a thin, off-white head, a hazy, orange-gold, bubbly appearance, and some good lacing left behind, which is displayed in sheets more than rings. Aroma is subdued, but one does get a little bit of sweet bread. Taste is strongly piney bitter, but the bitterness is not harsh or unpleasant. Other flavors are grapefruit, white bread, and sugar. Mouthfeel is medium and slick, and DOA IPA finishes puckering, dry, tart, bitter, and surprisingly drinkable. Although nothing in this really differentiates it from other West Coast style IPAs it is good and worth checking out.
