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.

Pours a clear, glowing orange, pale amber producing 2 fingers of frothy, lasting, white head that leaves webs, streaks & blothes of clumpy lace, receding to a nice surface cap & collar ring. Generous effervesce rises from the bottom after the pour. Aroma is grain, toast, honey, cracker, caramel, tropical fruit, spice, black pepper, stiff egg whites, cat urine & weak citrus. Taste is caramel, honey, cracker, tropical fruit, spice & thin orange/citrus. Sweet fronted & fruity it finishes bittersweet and remains so we'll into the aftertaste where all fades but the bitter on the back of the tongue. Mouthfeel is medium-heavy bodied with moderate carbonation, juciy, creamy & tongue coating.

From the bottle, it pours a clear light amber with a modest head. Eventually, the head reduces to a big ring and a continent. Hops in the nose...malt and hops in the mouth. Decent IPA..
