Notes/Commercial Description:
With the recent explosion of over-the-top hopped IPAs, we wanted to return to an India Pale Ale that was well-hopped, but still balanced and smooth. Our brewers wanted to name it after one of our hardworking staffers, so we decided to name it after Dave—the new guy. This beer is made with one hundred percent Columbus hops and only one malt, yielding a nice earthy tone and spicy flavors. Columbus hops have a citrusy profile, which is more subtle than that found in most IPAs.

Smell was outstanding, but the beer has a musty taste. Better than average, but not quite good.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

12 oz. bottle poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a pretty solid orange color. I got a huge blast of foam out of this one - I think the bottle may have been shaken. Some pretty good lacing on the way down.

Aroma: Smells of apricot, citrus, pine, hops, and lemon.

Taste: Taste follows the nose. There's also a touch of booze. Slightly more harsh than I had guessed.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied.

Overall: Pretty decent IPA with a traditional American IPA profile. I like that it's made with only one hop variety and one malt - it's very complex for having such a simple base. Not my favorite Atlantic beer - they make some really good ones, to be sure - but a solid IPA.
