English India Pale Ale (IPA) |  6.00% ABV

Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
This ale has its origins in the traditional English style, with a generous helping of American exuberance. Bright copper in color, it has an assertive hop bitterness balanced with a subtle malt foundation. Dry hopping at two sates of the brewing process provides floral and fruity hop flavors adding to the complexity of the brew. Original gravity ~ 1060; Alcohol by volume -- 6%.

12oz bottle, pours a deep copper color with a frothy white head that holds decent retention and leaves some lacing on the glass. Aromas are earthy, bready, malty caramel, citric, piny. Tastes are nice an malty up-front with bready malt and caramel, toasted grain, earthiness, pine, faint grassy hop, somewhat spicy hop finish. Nice balance with a good malty dose I'd expect from the style. Mouth-feel is medium with good carbonation. Overall, this one grew on me the more I drank. Great for a session, exceptional balance, very well executed.

Picked this up spontaneously due to a pretty good price at my local bottle shop. I wasn't expecting much but was pleasantly surprised.

P - Copper/dark brown with a reddish/orange tint. Poured from a bottle into a snifter. A creamy off white one finger head which fell off pretty quickly.

A - Some citrus notes, a little earthy & not very hoppy for an IPA.

T - Not as much citrus in the taste. More molasses & a sweet syrupy taste than a citrus. Some orange notes but no grapefruit or hops at all.

M - light to medium in body. Nothing too amazing but this beer finishes very dry & it isn't bitter at all.

O - For the price I paid ($2.99) this isn't bad. I wouldn't ever pay more than $8.99 for a 6 pack.

3.54/5  rDev +8.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Pours a clear copper with a finger's worth of creamy off-white head. Some carbonation and lace

Smells a bit like a hefeweizen. Banana and some toffee. Then the floral hops make themselves known. Grassy

Tastes a bit hoppier than the nose originally suggests. Definitely grassy and perfumey floral notes. Subtle grapefruit and bananas. Tastes juicy. The malts are in the background and are bready and slightly sweet. Finish is somewhat spicy. Bit of a metallic copper aftertaste. Not unpleasant but nothing fabulous

Feels clean and crisp. Lingering hop bitterness is slightly drying

Overall a nice example of the style. Moderately complex. Enough going on for me to enjoy but nothing mindblowing
