2.2/5  rDev -43.4%
look: 4 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 2

A: Toffee and Caramel malts dominate the aroma. No real hop presence. No diacetyl, no esthers.

A: Pours a clear amber with a thin persistent white head.

F: Malt dominates upfront and throughout the body of this beer, but it does finish with a hop bitterness.

M: A mid bodied pale ale w/ medium carbonation. No warmth or creaminess. A bit brash from all the malt. No astringency.

O: For a pale ale, I believe this beer has some significant flaws as to aroma and flavor. Where are the hops? The only real hop presence is in the finish. Highly suggest more hop presence in flavor and aroma. Style suggests moderate to high hop character and was not present. The malt character is great, just needs the hops, which are the bread and butter of this style.

3.7/5  rDev -4.9%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle received in trade from a non-BA member. Sampled on July 29, 2014.

It pours yellow to golden amber with a lingering off-white head.

The aroma has a slight toasted biscuit character but there is a sort of lemon zest, grassy hop sensation.

The body is medium.

The taste begins with a quick breaded malt character but swiftly turns into a floral, lemony hop finish. It tasted better as it warmed.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

This pours out a bright amber color with a dense half-inch head of foam. Aroma offers both strong hops (floral, grassy) and good malt (light caramel) notes. Good flavor: plenty of bitterness, but also not afraid to show a complex malt side, caramel, a little nuttiness, a very faint roast perhaps? The yeast yields a touch of fruitiness as well. Finish is well-attenuated but not as bracingly dry as many IPAs. It is definitely a strong, heady beer as well.

Very good IPA.

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.
