4.03/5  rDev +3.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - Pours a golden blond and light ruby red color with two finger head.

S - Bready malt, light citrus hop, hint of spice.

T - Starts out with a slight spicy hop flavor followed by a drying crisp finish. This seems to have a stronger spice kick than other English IPAs but I like it. Reminds me of a hoppier version of a winter warmer.

M - Medium body with lots of carbonation. Bubbles seem to explode in your mouth.

O - Pleasantly surprised with beer since it was two weeks past the best buy date. This beer was very enjoyable and well worth seeking out. The hops seem to hold up very well.

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.

3.98/5  rDev +2.3%
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.

4.11/5  rDev +5.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

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.
