Notes/Commercial Description:
Our version of a West Coast Style IPA. There are 12 pounds of hops in every 7-barrel batch, with a solid malt backbone to hold up to the bitterness and hop flavor. Bright amber with orange hues and a dense rocky off-white head. The nose smells of pine and grapefruit with earthy notes and a hint of tropical fruit. The roundness of the malt carries the flavors through this hop-forward beer. The bitterness is persistent to the dry, clean finish.

There's nothing wrong with Moat Mountain's Scottie's IPA. It smells pleasant, it goes down easily. It has a mild hop bitterness but isn't overwhelmingly hoppy. In many ways, it's the perfect example of the style. As a classical musician, I feel it is like an early Haydn symphony: it's a good example of the style that meets all the criteria, yet lacks character or creativity. There just isn't any personality.

This doesn't mean you shouldn't drink it. I'm not always in the mood for Beethoven; sometimes my ears just need an early Haydn symphony. The same for Scottie's. It's not Lunch. It's not Sculpin. It's not Founders or even Latitude 48. But it's a very solid, very drinkable beer that accompanies a burger very nicely.

And sometimes that's all you need.

Bomber > Pint Glass

A - Pours a cloudy orange some yeast floating around, 2 fingers of off white head, mild lacing.
S - Good aroma, lots of ripe tropical fruit, mango, and papaya, sweet malt, a little floral.
T - Good flavor, those tropical notes are there from start to finish, mid front you get some dry bitterness, some floral notes, a little bready and sweet malt.
M - Chewy and full, somewhat dry soapy finish that lingers, being the downside.
O - Very good IPA, the aroma is the best part of this beer for sure.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A - pale amber and just a bit hazy. Nice retention and lacing

S - Caramel and citrus

T - More of the malty caramel and breadiness. Floral and pine hops.

M - Moderate to low carbonation. Thin but resinous

O - Bit too thin and watery for my liking. Definitely a good balance of the malt and bitters but needs more flavor, depth, and body.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

22 oz bottle was poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: This beer poured a one finger head that reduced to a thin layer. It is a pale orange color with great clarity and bubbles coming up through the glass. Nice lacing on the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Light citrus, grassy, and piney hops followed by sweet pale and bready malts.

Taste: The bitterness overpowers the sweet and bready malts. My teeth are tingling a lot and my palate is a bit chalky too.

Mouthfeel: Somewhat smooth, medium carbonation, medium bodied, hop tingling, and a bit chalky.

Overall: I wouldn't mind trying this beet out on draft than through a bottle. $10 at the brewpub seems to be a bit much too when their cans go for 5. This beer
