3.5/5  rDev -10%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Had on draft at Palmer Place in LaGrange. Served in a pint glass.

A: Pours a clear golden straw with amber hues intertwined throughout the body. There is a half finger of off white head that sticks around the entire time and leaves some nice rings of lace down the glass.

S: The smell is incredibly malty with a slight piney and dank hops smell backing it up. As the beer warmed a bit some of the fruitiness showed itself.

T: The malts were the star of the show for a while with finishes of resiny and bitter hops. Once the beer warmed some of the fruitiness started to come out, but it took way too long for this to happen.

M: Medium bodied with good carbonation.

O: This was a little to malty for at the beginning. Once the beer warmed some of the better flavors I was expecting came out, but it took too long for this to happen

Serving type: on-tap

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass.

A: Golden yellow with a slight haze. Half finger white head with decent retention and good lacing.

S: Huge pineapple juice and mango hop aromas. Sweet smell not hoppy.

T: Again huge pineapple juice and mango. No bitterness until the end. Finishes with a grapefruit acidity.

M: Medium light body. Medium carbonation. Slick and pretty dry.

O: Good but the grapefruit in the end kinda ruins the nice pineapple flavors.

12oz bottle into pint glass.

Commodore Perry pours an interestingly light straw color with a one finger off-white head that quickly dissipates. No particulates - this beer is crystal clear.

Grass, pine, and biting green dank funk hop notes on the nose. Slightly sweet smelling with a hint of tropical fruit.

Taste is green. By that I mean grassy, piney, and bitter as heck. Slight onion taste. Nice malt backbone that stands up to the hops, but this is definitely a west-coast style IPA.

Nice crisp finish to this. Moderate carbonation.

Hop presence is incredible, and beats everything else to my tastebuds, but this is still a balanced beer that is a great IPA.
