Grapefruit colour with white head, white lace. Lots of creaminess. Appropriate significant carbonation, carbonation bubbles. Fairly high IBU, and a good bitterness. Smooth drinker.OK for an American IPA, good bitterness like a British ESB with a higher IBU profile.

Poured from the tap into a shaker pint glass.
A very gorgeous orange amber body, but while cloudy looks a little hazy also. Very good lacing while drinking giving some nice rings of sheets, and an off white head that is foamy/almost soupy.
Bouquet is kind of small very wet and clean smelling, but a distinct faint orange wet citrus bent. Not much else.
Light malt on the taste and that wet citrus orange hop feel as before. Borderline tea and herbal qualities too, almost feeling English IPA like to some extent. Weak orange juice feel in the mouth.
Overall a simple good example, almost a mish mash of style between American/English, but small on taste and body. This is not anything like a hop bomb or a big citrus or pine blast either. Easy drinking and simple, a good beer.

this particular version is listed at 7.6 percent abv
a: pale copper in color, not much head to speak of
s: the hops display a juicy grapefruit profile on a standard pale malt structure, big citrus rind, sugars well in check, not bad
m: carbonation and body both in the light-medium range
t: big grapefruit flavors ride over simple, grainy pale malt, very pulpy and juicy, tart grapefruit rind, the citrus takes over - not much complexity, finishes with a moderate-high acidity
d: like the grapefruit hops but more balance and range of flavor would be key, still a refreshing drink
standard pint at the brewpub

District chop house, Am IPA, draft, 6.6abv
A clear amber in color. Small head, didn't last long, however had good lacing.
S Floral sweet hop aroma. Best part of this beer other than drinking it.
T Huge American hop flavor, wonderful piney flavor, acidic, and earthy. There is a good dose of malt as well. Not too sweet, good attenuation.
M Medium body, maybe a little light on carbonation.
D Very good example of an Am IPA. No problem having more than one of these.

Nice IPA, a bit on the light and subdued side.
Presentation: Draft serving at its own brewpub. Served as a Brewer´s Marker on the menu, the chalkboard notes a "West Coast style IPA" Alc. by Vol (7.?%). Served in a shaker pint glass.
A - Medium amber/copper pour, with a nice one finger of frothy head, and good lacing as it goes down.
S - Soft hoppy profile, with a citrus, pine tone.
T - Crisp and good bitterness with a nice malt balance.
M - Nicely carbonated, on a smooth and light to medium body.
D - Nicely drinkable and pleasing brew.
Notes: These Brewer's Markers at the District Chophouse keep on bringing tasty and reliable brews. Always worth asking about what is rotating on this one and the seasonal selection. Good IPA but ironically I felt their APA last time had a better hoppy profile both in taste and particularly in smell. This one is a good one in any case.
