Reviewing the <a href="">Great Dane IPA</a> from the Downtown location of the Great Dane Pub & Brewing Company.
Score: 70

Appearance: Pours a transparent-ish copper penny color with one finger of creamy cream colored head. Excellent lacing. 4/5

Smell: Fresh lemons and piney citrus aroma. Not overly complex, but very inviting. 4/5

Taste: Lemon-citrus upfront. Lots of piney hop resin bitterness on the mid-palate. A little earthy. A heavy metallic finish, however, absolutely kills the flavor of this beer and leaves you cringing -- ruining an otherwise decent IPA (probably would have scored an 87). 1.5/5

Mouthfeel: Oily mouthfeel, medium-light bodied. High carbonation, bitter finish. The carbonation overwhelms the palate by overemphasizing the metallic finish. 2.5/5

Overall: A pretty solid IPA that was absolutely ruined by a horrible metallic finish. Perhaps it was just a bad tap line or bad batch. Most of the Great Dane's beer is pretty good (I love their Imperial IPA). All I know is that I will never order this beer again. 2.5/5

Recommendation: Everyone should avoid this beer.

Pairings: The Great Dane Pub Burger (eating food hid some of the metallic taste).

Cost: $3.50 for a 12 oz tap pour, $5 for 20 oz.

Serving type: on-tap
