The aroma says English IPA and it all leans that way from there. Sweet citrus and malty as opposed to the high hoppy nose of the American cousin, this beer starts out drinking like a pub beer. The taste follows the nose for an easy drink and the mouth feel is a nice smooth finish.

All in all another winner from Great Lakes.

A clear yellow gold / orange pour with a medium white head. Has aroma of caramel malt fruity with citrus notes, floral pine hops, yeast and mild bready notes. Taste same as aroma with some sweet orange flavors. A medium and smooth body. Has a very good caramel malt background with good citrus orange notes and floral pine hops on the end for balance. AN all around solid brew, very good well balance IPA.

Poured Commodore Perry IPA into a pint glass.

A - Pours a clear golden with a half finger of white head.

S - I'm getting grapefruit, pine and juicy hops with a malty sweetness.

T - Nice flavors that are pretty close to the nose. Grapefruit, pineapple, citrus, and some hop resin. Mid palate getting sweet malts that balance this brew out nicely. On the aftertaste getting more juicy hops .

M - Smooth medium mouthfeel with medium carbonation.

O - I really wasn't expecting much from this brew, I'm truly impressed with this beer and Great Lakes. Recommended ! Cheers!
