On draught at the UW Graduate House, a one-off IPA for OCB Week 2013.

Poured into a Welly glass. Bright caramel in colour, pushing into amber territory when held to the light. Good half inch of sturdy foam that lasts throughout the pint.

Nose is certainly on the floral end of the hop spectrum, as well as some mild pine and citrus notes. Interesting, definitely not the standard hop varieties from Welly. Caramel, malt, a bit of bread as well.

Tasty IPA that gives a much different result from what I had expected given the hop profile. Surprisingly floral and woodsy, rather than the tropical cone that I'm so used to. Still, very drinkable - enjoyable enough to have a few in an evening and be quite content. Carbonation is a bit sharp, medium bodied.

Hope I see this one again - good IPA that's not overly heavy and with a unique flavor.

Part of the "Welly One Off" series...

From the Brewer: "An American style India Pale Ale with notes of tropical fruit, lemon and pine. Dry hopped with Simcoe, Centennial, Amarillo, and Citra hops for an otherworldly aroma and a distinctly hoppy finish."

A - Finger of head dissipated in about a minute, honey golden in colour - quite cloudy, slight sediment floats.

S - Slight floral notes, notable pine touch, note of hoppiness, somewhat of a yeasty smell as well.

T - Instant floral hoppiness, certainly a note of pine - on the bitter side of things in general, but not for an IPA, aftertaste of a piney hop.

M - Very creamy, interesting consistency for an IPA, enjoyable.

O - Overall an interesting IPA - while not one of the best I have tried, certainly unique and worthy of a purchase. The creaminess of the beer is something that sets it apart from your average IPA.

(FYI - I picked this up direct from the Brewery - Brewed on June 8th, 2013 - Enjoyed on June 11th, 2013)
