Beer added by: beernut7 on 08-18-2002

In Montana, many classic memories are made right after someone says, “Hold my beer and watch this.” These bold, assertive moments deserve a bold, assertive beer – Big Sky IPA. A distinct hop presence and malty backbone will leave you refreshed and ready for your moment of glory. Hang on tight and enjoy the ride.

Its been a good IPA friend of mine for years but I think the last batch I had was not the freshest. Will continue to seek out the best.

Pours amber with a fading head.
Nose shows sweet syrupy malt and some soft piny hops.
Malty flavours, quite clean. Some piny hops. Not particularly complex. An assertive bitterness in the finish.

Pours golden clear with thin white head.
S- slight hop with fruity wheat.
T- good juicy, fruity hop combination. Is that bubblegum at finish? Nice malt.
F- great balance for a busy beer.
O- I could drink a lot of these. Reminicient of Gumballhead, just not quite as good.

To be honest, expected it to taste like crap bc of the cheesy label. Very surprised. Great nose and very smooth drinkable ipa.
