[Suggested Glassware: Tulip Glass]

The pour was a clear orange amber with an average (1-2 finger) white pillowy head that was mostly lasting, reducing to a medium film and collar with very good sticky lacing.

The aroma was rather mild of a light grain malt, floral hops and a soapy yeast with notes of caramel and citrus (orange peel).

The taste was bitter sweet and a tad malty with a touch of caramel in the beginning, and then became lightly hoppy with a bitter citrus peel ending. The flavor lasted for a decently long time following the swallow, with a bitter citrus peel taste left lying on the taste buds.

Mouthfeel was light in body with a thin dry texture and a medium carbonation.

Overall this was a decent enough IPA with a light bitter hoppy taste and an easy drinkability. This brew would be fine on a hot summer’s day, when you’re looking for something that was light and refreshing...

Pours a handsome amber in the big goblet, even has the orange IPA cast. A decent foam settles to a persistent swirl. Plenty of carbonation on the tongue. A nice tang of fruit in the nose.

Starts out malty and toasty. Finally some hops begin to show up. A touch of resins and a very shy bitterness gradually takes over. The malt is slightly roasted, with warm flavors. This certainly lacks the acidic punch of many aggressive IPAs. This is just a more timid sort of brew. Apparently there's not a category for American Adjunct IPA. However, in these days of tongue-buckling hop monsters, it's a well-made pleasant quaff playing in a dangerous neighborhood.

A- mostly clear shiny copper with golden highlights and a foamy buff colored head that is loose and airy and loud and generic looking. Not very hoppy looking either. Lace abounds.

S- brightly floral, spicy and citrus, but subdued. Underlying orange peel and caramel toasted grains.

T- pleasant bitterness with a resinous hop flavor, but Sierra Nevada pale ale seems hoppier than this IPA. It's got some lightly toasty grains and a small hint of sweetness but it lacks any sort of complexity or intrigue. Finishes nicely balanced but again, it has a very generic taste.

MF- medium bodied and fizzy with moderate dryness.

D- this is one laid back easy going IPA. Dollar store IPA. It's not offensive in any way, just bland.

This beer is a very earthy and mild IPA. Not what I was expecting at all, but not totally terrible. It is really drinkable, but the IPA bite that I was expecting is more of an aftertaste than anything else.

This is the most neutral beer that I have ever had. That is not really a good or bad thing, but I prefer for IPAs to be bold and rich. Saying that, I would not classify this as watered down, but it is very different. If you tried this as your first IPA, you would be very confused about the style if you tried another. This beer comes off as an IPA for someone with intense brand loyalty,and someone that would only drink this beer--this is not an attribute that I imagine for any IPA.

As with the other Henry Weinhard beer I had, this one really features cascade hops, which is a huge plus for me. I find this beer to be a really decent quality for what it is, and that is also a huge plus for me.

Overall, this is a beer that I would recommend, especially for people that either hate the IPA style, or people that want a beer on hand at a cookout that is more accessible than many IPA brews. I love the IPA style, and this in no way revolutionizes it, but it is not bad at all, and seems to be a decent beer.

I am biased here, I have yet to meet an IPA that I didn't like...I'm smitten. That being said, great flavor, nice bite. Like it alot. Will buy again. Great body, had with Carne Asada Tacos. Enjoyed bbqing out of bottle, just a beast that way. Thoroughly enjoyable.
