3.23/5 rDev -8.2%
Big white head slowly falls above a cloudy washed out straw golden colored beer.
Light aroma of slightly sour grains and even less hops presence but I think it's noticeable.
Very light almost sourish taste with a slight hops bite following.
A lightly dryish aftertaste on a lighter bodied IPA.
Very light hops for a IPA, maybe that's what a mid-American IPA is.

Served in can. Poured into shaker pint glass.
Appearance - Hazy, deep golden, with a tint of bronze. Head is a fluffy white with light lacing that slowly trickles down.
Smell - Initial: Bright floral with a light malt backing. I kept getting a hint of grapefruit out in front with floral aromas. Midway: Finding some caramel notes mixed with floral scents. It's enjoyable.
Taste - Initial: Light and smooth with a gentle crispness. The light malt balances well with the floral hops. Hops stay present through the somewhat dry finish. Midway: Best part of this beer I think. The beer has warmed a little bit and the hops seem to have awakened. Earthy notes are balanced well with the floral flavors with that dry finish.
Mouthfeel - Dry, medium mouthfeel.
Overall - Wish I had more than three. This is my second helping of this beer and I really enjoyed it. Definitely an IPA I'd keep stocked in the fridge if I could ready and easily procure it. Easy to drink with well balanced flavors and bitter hops at the finish. Leaves you wanting more without feeling weighed down.

Poured into a shaker pint glass.
Look: Peachy light caramel color. Sea suds of off-white foam take forever to recede. Light lacing.
Aroma: Earthy, herbal, fruity, and hoppy.
Taste: A shot of malt sweetness, but this beer is all about hop bitterness. Love the faint peach touch. Citrus rind in the finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium body.
Overall: Another great beer from Thunderhead.

Went to visit my family in Nebraska and found this thunderhead beer which I had heard little of so I decided to give it a try
So I have to say that the can art on this guy is great. Poured this into a pint and was greeted with a nice 1 finger white foamy head and a cloudy yellow color. The smell is big citrus, orange rind, and definitely some grain. Alright, the taste is dry, dry, and dry! Very little malt presence in this beer, very bitter, citrus, and pine resin taste. It reminds me alot of the Smuttynose IPA. Mouthfeel is medium with fairly aggressive carbonation.
Overall this is a different IPA than the usual West coast style and I enjoyed it. Its not real refreshing and not very smooth but it is a bold IPA. I have to give them credit for trying something different.

I try anything called IPA and have for years. Most disappoint; this one does not. The color is light straw yellow, not golden. Develops a good, thick, head that hangs around for a while, with plenty of lacing. Aroma is of hops; fruity, citrus. The taste is also of hops (what else?) but not overpowering. The mouthfeel is perhaps a bit thin - but maybe that's a good thing since you'll want another. And, I like that it comes in cans.
These guys can brew. If they don't already make a beer called Sodbuster, perhaps that's next.
