Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.20%

Availability: Year-round

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. The medium body, crisp finish, and moderate alcohol and IBU levels makes this one of America’s most drinkable and best-selling IPAs.

Had on tap at mellow mushroom in Johnson City, TN

Arrived a slightly hazy medium amber with a small whitish head.

Mostly piney hops in the aroma along with a decent amount toasted malt and caramel.

The flavor was much like the smell. Quite earthy with more pine than citrus in the way of hops. Decently impressed with the hop/malt balance but it is all a little bit underdone. This really tastes like a light pale ale, definitely not an IPA. Overall, very underwhelming.

A: The beer is very hazy yellow in color and has a light to moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a thin off white head.
S: There are light aromas of herbal hops and passionfruit in the nose.
T: The taste is similar to the smell and also has some hints of pine resin along with a light amount of bitterness.
M: It feels a bit shy of medium-bodied, somewhat crisp and a bit thin on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is rather easy to drink and has an interesting aroma/taste but doesn’t really deliver a hop punch compared to other IPAs. It’s like an APA with a bit more hops.

12oz stubby bottle, pours golden in color with a nice frothy white head, good retention and excellent lace. Doesn't appear to be an IPA. My initial thoughts are that it's mislabeled, but given color isn't everything and it looks good, it gets the 4. Aromas are herbal hops, biscuit, faint citrus. Tastes are biscuity, herbal hops, grassy, sharply astringent, sharp cheddar cheese perhaps. This really tastes more like a pilsner than an IPA to me; and for a pilsner it's pretty good. For an IPA it's lacking some qualities I'd expect for the style. Mouth-feel is thin-to-medium, smooth and dry. Overall, kind of watered down or bland compared to its counterparts in the IPA category.
