Notes/Commercial Description:
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!

A: Dark golden, slightly hazy, nice head retention, appears fairly carbed. 3.75
S: Interesting aroma, may be slightly oxidized, malt character, some white wine type hops. Definitely not your typical citrus/tropical IPA aroma. Slightly floral as well. Not particularly inviting. 3.25
T: Hmm, not that good. High level of bitterness, some floral notes, very weak hop flavor, some light sweetness, but not much going on here. Again, may have suffered from oxidation, exp date indicates Nov 6, 2014. OK. Fairly hard to drink. 2.5
M: Nice and dry, slightly overcarbonated, almost like a pilsner. 3.0
O: I would not recommend this IPA. It has almost no characteristics of an IPA, or really any beer that is pleasing. I've had these German IPAs before - Stone's comes to mind from last year - this is an interesting experiment, but just did not work. 2.75

22oz bomber with a pry-off cap and a best by date of 11/06/2014. Poured into a snifter.

Appearance: Pours a clear golden color with 1/2 finger of head with lacing down the glass

Smell: Very grassy and floral hop character, light

Taste: Bitterness upfront with a clean malt middle with the hop flavor really coming in the finish

Mouthfeel: Very crisp and clean; this is dryer than expected

Overall: This is different than what i expected. This is lighter in almost every aspect than I imagined it would be, except for the bitterness. The bitterness is strong upfront which then subsides to some clean malt and gives a floral hop note in the finish. I enjoyed this offering and with such a crisp clean finish it almost feels like an IPL. I look forward to the next iterations of this IPA.
