Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: jsh420 on 03-29-2014

This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

We like to mix it up. New flavors, new ideas, new ingredients; we welcome them all. In celebration of our penchant for prolific experimentation, we present Moving Parts: The Ever Evolving IPA. Each release in this series celebrates a tweaked ingredient or two, creating an endless array of possible flavor profiles.

For our first batch (codenamed MP01), we blended whole-flower hops from the US, UK and Germany with German malts to create an IPA featuring citrus and piney notes. For us, Moving Parts are a good thing!

this has been a weird series for me so far, not totally successful, but interesting enough. i like the hop profile on this one a lot, with all the german and english strains, but i am not in love with the pilsener malt base that they chose to use for it. clear and blonde, it looks like a pils or a golden ale, nice white head though with good good retention. aroma of those euro hops is crowded out a little bit the intense biscuit and pils malt smells, which are strong here. grassy vegetal hops are more apparent in the taste, but again over shadowed by the pils malt for me. that bready base just doesnt allow this beer to get to the ipa level with the hoppiness. as a hoppy pils, i think its excellent, but as an ipa, its too malty, even though its this pale. nice carbonation though and i can see it being quite refreshing, but again the abv forced by all the grain in the mash sort of turns me off, makes it less sessionable. that aspect could be scaled back and this would be a much better beer i think, or at least more agreeable to my palate and the ipa style.

The first taste offers that hop explosion you want from an IPA along with carbonation and a lingering and prevalent citrus. The pine comes in with the citrus and a hop residue that lingers for a while...you can taste the pine minutes later. The flavor stays strong throughout your entire glass. Its brewed with whole flower hops from Germany, the U.S. and the U.K. so its pretty hop forward. It did have an enjoy by date of Nov 2014 but I’m not sure the extra 4 months affected it too much; still tasted great.

22oz bottle poured into a large mug. Enjoy By 06 Nov 2014. Sorry about that, Victory.

Pours cloudy, yellow-bronze, with a good sized head and a fair amount of carbonation. Smell is vaguely fruity, strawy, slight funk.

Taste is strong bitter, more of the vague fruit (light colored, like maybe unripe apricots). Heavy pine.

Mouthfeel is light with a bit of a resinous coating. Overall, it's not great, but it's not bad. Wish I'd had it fresher.

Solid, straight-forward IPA with minimal sweetness and pretty tame hopping, but my bottle is half a year older than the best-by date, so no surprise.

Clean, crisp taste. Solid to spectacular nose. Rich Amber color. Hoppy taste, but not overwhelming.

Even if this was way old, I really dug it. Perhaps the place mislabeled it and it was actually Batch 2?
