My neighbor brought over a storm chaser IPA that is quite nice and definitely a sessionable IPA for the SUMMER TIME! The beer poured clear copper color with white head that is leaving a very nice lace. The scent is faint bitter hops. The taste is a decent balance between malt and bitter hops with some slight lemon/lime citrus. The mouthfeel is lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall this is a good summer style beer.

I like a heavy, alcoholic beer that has a resilient head. This one scores great from me for its ability to cling to the inside of a pint glass.

Served on-tap at Cinetopia dine-in theater at Overland Park in Kansas.

A: This beer has a lovely appearance. It's dark for an IPA and could easily pass as an amber lager with its thick frothy head. It has an amber glow that is transparent and inviting. The rings on the inside of the glass stayed active for over an hour while the movie went on (enjoyed during a movie at Cinetopia in Overland Park, KS). Lovely and bonus points here from me.

S: Delightfully hoppy, crisp and fresh. Nothing too unexpected - notes of green apple and lemon are possibly hidden away deeply, perhaps some grapefruit as well.

T: A wonderfully hoppy beer that isn't too biting or bitter. A bit of a citrus tart underneath. Hoppy and malty (which you would expect with a nearly amber appearance) with a delightful caramel aftertaste. Unexpectedly vibrant and balanced for an IPA.

M: Crisp, smooth, somewhat tart, fairly bitter and a good balance of carbonation. I couldn't ask for any more from an IPA in this category.

O: Definitely sad that I can't get this one on tap at my local watering hole!
