IPA is the second beer from Big Sky I have tried. The other was Moose Drool. I thoroughly enjoyed both. I found both to be well crafted and excellent examples of their styles. Big Sky is a brewery whose beers should be sought after.
Big Sky IPA poured into the glass deep copper in color with good clarity. The head was a firm froth and pale tan in color. The lace was nicely thick and sticky.
The smell was sweet caramel malts, hints of brown sugar, a citrus fruitiness and pine needles from the hops.
The taste began with big biscuity malt and a bit of fruity sweetness. This was followed immediately by an assertive green hoppy bitterness. The finish was dry with a lingering bitterness and the tangy bite of citrus rind.
The body was medium with a moderately active carbonation which added up to a creamy, but slick mouthfeel.
As far as I know Big Sky is not distributed in Indiana. I picked these up in Wisconsin. On my next trip to Wisconsin I will have to track down more from Big Sky.
