Straight ahead east coast IPA, that borders on EIPA and APA. Good.

a) Nice golden amber color with 1 finger of froth with lots of lace arcs.
s) Earthy, herbal hops remind me of EIPA, and the gentle hopping and sweet malt of APA. Bready with caramel sweetness.
t) Taste jumps higher, with more pine and orange marmalade in it. Bitter hop and citrus rind cleans up the finish nicely. Great food beer. Great with seafood, shrimp, oysters.
f) Beer carbs and mouthfeel are medium weight but its finish raises it to great pub and seafood beer.

Eight Point IPA brewed by Devils Backbone Brewing Company, with an ABV of 6.20% This American IPA pours out a deep golden amber color with a nice white head. There is also a nice amount of lacing to this brew, it sticks to the side of the glass well. The smell of Eight Point IPA is rich with earthy grains and malts. There is also some mild hop bitterness in the smell as well. Was hoping for more hop bitterness in the smell. Now for the taste, it is Bold with flavors. You pick up on nice mild hop bitterness and earthy grains and malts. This is a nice mild American IPA, not saying that is a bad thing. The body of this brew, Isa solid medium. There is nothing overpowering about this brew, it has a super nice balance to it. This brew would go good on any occasion. The mouth feel of Eight Point IPA is Bold, Clean, Smooth , Hoppy, and Refreshing. Overall I'm giving Eight Point IPA a 3.75 out of 5. I would definitely look this brew up again giving the opportunity to. Devils Backbone Brewing Company, did a real nice job with this American IPA.

Poured into my favorite tulip glass. It is an orangey-amber clear pour with about an inch of foam on the top that quickly dissipated. Has the expected grapefruit smell thanks to all the hops. The taste is good and becomes bitter at the end. It needs a second taste; the first was pretty forgettable.

Eight Point IPA | Devils Backbone Brewing Company. Poured from the bottle into a pint glass, the head's two fingers thick, with solid lacing, and a deep gold body.

I smell milder hops than most IPA's.

The taste is kind of a weaker representation of the style.

Medium mouthfeel with mild carbonation.

I'll rate Eight Point IPA | Devils Backbone Brewing Company with a 4.
