Notes/Commercial Description:
Vendetta IPA is the taste of sweet revenge. Aggressively bitter with a cutthroat convergence of Citra and Amarillo hops, this Vendetta won't soon be forgotten.

Toured the Speakeasy brewery yesterday while drinking a tulip of Vendetta. Really, really delicious. The nose is exquisite, and the taste lives up to the promise. Fantastic. Of course, drinking it at its utmost freshness doesn't hurt, nor does the wafting fermentation going on all around. This will be my next keg buy.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A: Pours a medium to dark amber color with a fair amount of off-white head. A fairly solid layer retains, leaving medium lacing.

S: Honeyed sweetness underneath floral hops.

T: Sweet grain leading into floral hops with a pretty significant bitter kick on the finish. Nice overall assuming you like IPAs, though.

M: Medium body, medium to high carbonation.

Overall, a nice IPA. It's balanced a bit on the bitter side but certainly not too far.

The Vendetta IPA from Speakeasy is Goood! The beer poured a hazy orangish with foamy white head that is leaving a nice lace. The scent carried a nice pine hop with subtle citrus flare. The taste was a very well balance between the bitterness of the hops and sweet malt. Toward the end...the bitterness prevails....but that is what makes it good. The pine and slight citrus are present throughout. The mouthfeel is medium in body with smooth carbonation. Overall this is a nice beer...would want more on the nose tho.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Appearance- dark amber color, nice size head, nice lacing

Smell- strong hop and malt smell

Taste- some hops, strong malt flavor for an IPA

Mouthfeel- medium bodied

Drinkability- It was ok. I think it would have been better with more hop flavor in it. It was a little bit too malty for an IPA.
