Notes / Commercial Description:
The generous addition of hops both during and at the end of the fermentation process (dry-hopping) gives our India Pale Ale its characteristic bitterness and piney citrus aroma and flavor.

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

Pours clear amber, moderate foamy head, lots of sticky lacing.
Smells of sticky sweet citrus blossom, tropical, grain, orange, banana, pineapple, caramel malt.
Taste is of he above notes but also a dull, lingering bitterness, some metallic elements, and sweet citrus that penetrates all the way through.
Overall enjoyable but a bit of a mess, pleasant notes with some unpleasant undertones.

Bottle, Nov, 2017:
Pours a darker golden; quite clear with maybe the slightest bit of haze. Head isn't huge, but revives easily, some lacing.

Nose has a bit of a stale beer note to it. Piney in a slightly wooden sense, there's a does of dry shredded wheat cereal in a box to it. It's not the newest bottle, but it's not too enticing at this point.

The taste is a little more balanced. There is still that grainy cereal malt opening and backbone, but a decent does of pine wood bitterness joins it early. The two form an earthy, damp fall morning flavor. As it warms a little citrus (orange) comes out to accent, but it's mostly one-noted. A medium to medium light body, it's just a little flat, and there is a lingering bitterness.

So not a bad beer overall, the nose was really sort of a shock and disappointing. The rest of the beer was about as expected.

I will just say up front that I am not a big fan of IPA's because they sometimes can be way overhopped. At least, to me, as that is not my thing. And this beer isn't. To me, its hoppiness is just right so not only do I taste hops (in a moderate amount) but a lot of other flavors as well including some sweetness and maltiness (which admittedly I tend to favor). So I think if your palate runs similar to mine, you will like this beer. Very smooth for an IPA and in no way overpowering. It kept a nice head and the orange and spice flavors complemented each other. Probably a lot more than that going on, I am still new to reviewing beer! I'll definitely drink it again.

Great value for a moderately drinkable IPA. Expected drastically more aroma from a dry hopped beer but I can only slightly get grassy with a little citrus. Taste is overwhelmingly malty with no apparent hop profile other than a faint bitterness. Too much Carmel 20L in my opinion. Feel is very light aside from the maltiness on the tongue. The look is extremely clear, which I personally love. Overall very drinkable, with the value matching. I don't think I would considered this an IPA maybe just an amber or APA.

Not a big IPA, but a very satisfying one. Clean, refreshing, great aroma and taste. Great any time brew. Just hoppy enough and not overly filling.
