Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
After 13 years of brewing excellence, we deemed it time to produce a year round IPA style. Because a well made, well balanced IPA is a work of art, we took our time with this one and added our own local spin onto it. First we needed a substantial malt backbone to not only create the 6.5% abv, but to compliment later lupulin additions. Heavy doses of Munich Malt and Cara malt help to add body, mouthfeel and a touch of sweetness. Canadian wheat malt also lends to the great foam and head retention. 5 different hops are added at 7 different times in this brew, and the majority of the massive, complicated, but delightful hop profile is derived from Columbus and Cascade hops from the kettle boil (bittering, flavor, and aroma additions). The real icing on this masterpiece, however, comes from literally searching the near and far: Brewmaster Derek Luke married Annie Sherman, a Kiwi citizen in late 2011, visiting New Zealand for their honeymoon. Upon return, Derek came back raving of the legendary Motueka hop. Craving to satiate the “near and far desire”, this hop is added in conjunction with Chinook hops grown right here in RI from Ocean State Hop farms during the lengthy dry hopping process. The result: A fantastic IPA 100% produced locally with local hops, yet worldly in its own right!

3.45/5  rDev -9.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Consumed 12/3/12

Appearance: Hazy medium-amber with some orange highlights - pours with a creamy, off-white head, leaves a decent ring and some lacing

Smell: Grassy, weedy hops - not "weedy" as in dank, weedy as in this smells like weeds you'd pull out a garden - not 100%, but I think this aroma is due to the New Zealand hops - beyond the weeds, there are some nice floral citrus aromas, grapefruit rind - nice malt backbone - lightly sweet, with some caramel, lightly toasted

Taste: Better than the aroma - nicely bitter, with some sharp grapefruit peel, pith and pine needles - very dry, lacking anything I would describe as "juicy" - spicy, and very earthy - leafy, herbal - caramel malts, some dry biscuits - asprin-like bitter aftertaste

Mouthfeel: Medium body, nicely smooth, nicely carbonated, nicely drinkable

Overall: IPA = "India Point Ale" = 2edgy4me

The aroma is pretty odd, but it tastes good. This is a solid effort from Newport Storm. Perhaps not the "masterpiece" as described by the brewers, but it's worth a try.
