Single bottle from 6-pack purchased from "beer cooler" at excellent Giant Eagle in Legacy Village. I mention this particular store because they keep all their beer in a large walk-in cooler, ensuring never skunked beer. Plus you can walk among beer as you make your selection(s).
"Freshest until" date 10/01/07.

Pale orange in color with one-finger foam maintained and Belgian lace along glass.

Floral fragrance with a touch of cotton candy. More piney hops as the liquid is consumed.

Quick bitterness on the tip of the tongue gives way to hops and grapefruit. 7.5% ABV listed on bottle but this is one smoooth IPA considering the ramped up etoh.

Original rating 4.5.

The appearance is similar as above.

The nice hop aromatics are a bit stilted by the bready malt.

The smooth bitterness remains but the tropical fruit gives way to the malt leaving very little grapefruit but leading to a more "balanced" brew.

A nice IPA but at least a tier below Headhunter or White Rajah, our other year round locals.

Great Lakes Commodore Perry IPA has a fairly thin, white head, a clear, bubbly, golden appearance, and a good amount of lace curtain left behind on the glass. The aroma is of semi-sweet white bread, some tart fruit, hop resin, and subdued barley. Taste is of all that, with a pronounced, yet not harsh, straight-forward hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium and slick, and Great Lakes Commodore Perry IPA finishes on the dry side and decently drinkable.

Poured bottle into New Belgium globe

A-Pours a clear orange amber with one finger white head. Good spotty lacing.

S-Aroma is fairly sweet. Caramel, syrup, floral and hop notes.

T-Taste is moderate bitterness with a nice malt backbone. Flavors of flowers, caramel, biscuits, pine and a little spice.

M-Mouthfeel has a medium body with nice carbonation. Well balanced.

O-Overall an above average IPA. I really enjoy the chillwave the most then the erie monster second.
