A - Pale straw yellow in color. Half an inch head retention. For an IPA, it was lacking a nice fluffy head even while pouring. It also settled fairly quickly. Slightly lacking.
S - Reminds me of a czech pilsner or even German wheat beer in the nose. Not getting a whole lot of hop characteristics. Subpar for an IPA
T - Nice taste up front, then it seems to mellow out. The bitterness then comes forward on the finish, then it fades. Quite a roller- coaster on the palate. Starts Great, then fades on the palate, followed by a great finish that slowly fades. Not very smooth. I'm getting a lot of honey characteristics with subtle hops .
M - The mouthfeel is great. This is probably the category it actually excells in. Medium bodied and and refreshing mouthfeel. If only the taste reflected the feel.
D - You could definitely drink quite a few of these. Great drinkability, but lacking in a lot of punch and complexity taste-wise.
Overall I would say this is a good session beer if you want to drink a lot. But if you are looking for a true IPA as a treat, there are plenty of better IPA's out there.

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.
