Atlas India Pale AleAtlas India Pale Ale

Brewed by:
Marshall Brewing Company
Oklahoma, United States

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.50%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Atlas India Pale Ale is an ale with strength and character worthy of its name. Pale and caramel maltings of American two-row barley give Atlas IPA a malty backbone to support its noticeable, but not overpowering, hoppy flavor and aroma. Columbus, Amarillo, and Cascade hops are harmoniously blended together, bringing about floral and earthy tones which highlight this bold but delicious ale.

1492nd  Review on BA
Bottle to pint

Thanks to TheBishopCo for this one

App- A deep amber/mahogony with a orangy/yellow highlighted outside. Small one finger mocha head with barely a spot of cling.

Smell-  A huge malty bomb of a beer. Really thick and sweet. The creamy hops add a good depth of flavor.

Taste- Well its a nice IPA. Its very malty but has a semi good hop balance. A little spicy on the back. Maybe a touch of creaminess on the finish.

Mouth- A full medium body with a a medium thick carbonation. Pretty full malts and creamy hops on the finish.

Drink- Its okay, not the best IPA but being from CA its hard to beat our in state beers.

Bought a Mix-A-Six Pack from MacDoodles in Joplin, MO for $9.85 and added a 12 FL. OZ. bottle of this to it. Poured from the Black/White Vintage labeled bottle with a Greek character carrying the globe into a Shaker Glass. Has no freshness date on the bottle.

Aroma- A big citrus nose is present with american hops. Light sweetness and malt but well put in the background. Good for style!

Appearance- Pours a 1 finger head that dies over a good amount of time. Has a medium, reddish copper colored body with light hazing. Leaves good lacing behind.

Flavor- Tons of citrus and sweet hops are continuous throughout the taste. Medium hop bitterness and has a great malty background.

Mouthfeel- Medium Bodied, Medium Carbonation, Smooth, and hoppy all the way through. Not much left on the palate except sweetness.

Overall Impression- A very nice IPA by Marshall! Wish these guys distributed farther East then Joplin. Highly recommend if your an IPA fan.

On tap at Blackthorn Pizza and Pub, Joplin, MO

Pours a nice and pretty old penny copper, with little head but ample lacing.

Smells of Columbus hops, with a decent amount of malt aroma as well. Hard to add more, really. Good caramel note to it, which should help the flavor.

And it does. Good bracing bitterness up front which dies away before it gets big. Then the malty, caramelly barley notes duke it out with hop flavors to see who gets to dominate. To the advantage of the drinker, it's a stalemate. Sweetness us here, but it runs and hides immediately after waving hello. In all, it's bitter, but on the low, accessible end of an IPA.

Mouthfeel is light-medium. Not much more to add.

Overall a nice beer. Not a challenging IPA, but good. A good example to introduce someone to the style.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A: Deep copper hue with a thin but steady head and decent lacing; a bit cloudy at first but that clears up a bit

S: Pretty subdued--nothing offensive but just not a ton going on; some citrus and tea leaf and some subtle burnt malts with a touch of bready sweetness

T: Bitterness is more herbal and grassy with just a touch of lemon; also lots of bready malts--a pretty malty IPA; this is a decent beer but different from most of the style but a nicely balanced finish that makes me want a bit more

F: Fairly sticky and oily--nice medium body for an IPA

O: This is a malty IPA--almost more British in style; it's a decent beer though not what I was expecting

A - Pours a dirty light brown with two finger head that fades quickly.

S - Heavily breaded malts, oat, rye.

T - Bready malt. Slight bitterness on the backend.

M - Medium with average carbonation.

O - Somewhat of a disappointing IPA. Hops are not very noticable. Just some bitterness on the back end. Too bready and grainy.
