On tap at Top of the Hub! Pretty standard IPA, if I'm honest.

I was at Silantra last night for supper when I saw this in the cooler & since it was their last one, it came home with me for drinking, rating & review. I went to bed fairly early so that I could watch Olympic hockey this morning.

From the bottle: "A daily driver built for the long haul, Daily Dose IPA is dripping with the hop flavors you've come to expect from the OCB Crew. Tune in. Hop on. Enjoy this cosmic IPA."

"Brewed with 2-row and rolled oats to deliver a pale-golden, hazy body and a creamy mouthfeel that showcases a juicy hop profile. A heavy dose of late addition Galaxy, Citra and Mosaic hops shine through the super smooth malt base. A spicy, dank punch of Mosaic hops is balanced by the big tropical fruit and citrus notes of Galaxy and Citra hops."

I Pop!ped the cap & even though I was performing a slow, gentle pour, I was still getting a light haziness. Oh well. Once it was nearly completely decanted, I gave it an in-glass swirl to raise two-plus fingers of dense, foamy, rocky, bone-white head with good retention that left nice lacing in its wake. Color was a slightly-hazy Straw-Yellow (SRM = > 2, < 4). Nose smelled like my idea of a modern AIPA - grapefruit, pine & tropical fruits in a pleasant mélange. Mmm. Mouthfeel was medium, but kind of slick & silky on the tongue. The taste was likewise a mélange of modern American hop flavors, but with a requisite amount of bitterness to offset the tropical fruit flavors that tend to be too sweet for the style. If you don't like grapefruit bitterness, this had tropical fruitiness and vice versa as well as a light pine resin taste. Finish was dry, but on the cusp of semi-dry. It was quite drinkable & knowing that it comes in CANs, I will be revisiting this one in the future.

Try it and you will see. Once a day may not be enough, tell your doctor if cravings ever subside.

A: Pours a hazy yellow color with 2 fingers of head that fades down to a decent cap that leaves good lacing

S: Citrus and herbal hops up front along with a touch of pine and some fairly neutral maltiness

T: Follows the nose. Starts off with the herbal and citrus hop notes and then goes into the malt and a light-moderate bitterness. Finishes with lingering herbal notes

M: Light-medium bodied with moderate carbonation

O: Feels more like mix between a hoppy session and an IPA that doesn't quite land in single pale territory, if that makes any sense. Maybe that's why they still call it an IPA? Regardless, a solid brew that is very easy to drink and won't wear your palate down too quickly. Good choice for an all-around any-time drinking beer
