The best IPA ever? No.

But, a friend asked me the other day, "if you could only drink one beer for the rest of your life, what would it be?" OEF was near the top of my list. It is so drinkable, and doesn't get old. Big fan of this beer, and will continue to be in the future.

Tampa Bay Brewing Co. "Old Elephant Foot IPA"
$6 on tap @ The Brass Tap, Oldsmar, FL

Well you've got to at least love the name! Old Elephant Foot just sounds so English, doesn't it? And yet there are some American hops to it as well. I found it spicy and leafy (and a touch floral), but there's a good bit of pine and citrus to it as well. Beyond that, the malt also remains very English in nature. It's got a clear caramel edge to it that offers both golden and dark caramels, and it's a bit bready and toasty. Where it's American for sure is in it's girth, and in it's bitterness level; in that sense this is kind of an amped up English IPA (which normally tend to be lighter than Americans) - or am I totally backwards on this and it's an American IPA with an English bent? Regardless, it serves the purpose... it's a full-flavored, medium-bodied ale with more strength (7.0%) and a dry and hoppy character - it satiates! Nicely done!
