This was positively horrible. An immediate drain pour.

The GateCrasher is a decent IPA from Evanston, IL...certainly better than the Football teams...all Big Ten fans....can yuk yuk that up...yes poor attempt at some humor...Go Bucks...beat Blue. Anyhoo...the beer poured a cloudy copper/orange with thin white head that is leaving a lace. The scent carries almost an amber like malt aroma with some bitter hops. The taste has some bitter hops upfront but almost a burnt bagel on the back. The mouthfeel is medium in body with smooth carbonation. Overall its a decent beer....I prefer American IPA with citrus and pine....this is an English style so it snot in my wheel house.

12oz can, undated, poured into a Black Three Floyds Rastal Pint Glass.

The beer pours a soft, light amber, straw color, hues of gold and copper with a hazy complexion. Atop the beer rests a soft, billowy, white head, about 2 fingers high that has nice retention and leaves a nice network of soapy lace behind. The aroma is pleasant, soft bitter hops, piney with light grapefruit, a fair amount of noble character, earthy and green before a large amount of bready malt comes across, sticky but crusty. The flavors are nice, plenty of bitter hops, earthy and piney with the same noble character that the nose suggested. Lots of bready malts and caramel sweetness finish up the flavors, but the beer certainly remains bitter and not overly sweet at all, very fine balance. The mouthfeel is nice, it coats well, has nice carbonation, not too lively, very creamy at times, nice lively feel and the finish is soft but a lightly dry sensation lingers well.

Verdict: A very nice English style IPA from Temperance. The flavors are balanced well, a nice hop character is showcased and the malts aren't too sweet. It's a bit heavier in terms of flavor profile than many of the hop forward American IPAs so it doesn't seem to be as refreshing, but still a very enjoyable beer.
