Ee Tah! IPAEe Tah! IPA
Notes: Formerly Eeeee Tah! and Eetah!

Our Ee Tah! IPA pours to a bright, golden yellow color with aromas of rich tropical fruit, passion fruit with a hint of citrus. Pale, pilsner, and midnight wheat malts give it a solid malt character while Chinook, Citra, and Amarillo hops impart flavors of ripe tropical fruit, peach and apricot leading to a clean hoppy finish.

Deep gold color, nice white foam head. Fruit and citrus flavors, but more rind than pulp as the beer has a significant bite. In fact, this IPA is quite in your face. No complexity to speak of. It comes at you hard, and lasts well past swallow.

Nice beer, this is my first time ever even hearing of it before. Pretty good flavor but frankly just slightly above average. I’d get it again but it wouldn’t be the top of my list.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5
LOOKS: A fairly clear, light amber, with a finger of off white foam that lasts. Mild lacing down the glass.
AROMA: Some citrus fruit rind, like lemon and grapefruit, a wee bit of pine, and even a little DFH 60 Minute B.O., to boot; or rubber.
TASTE: Citrus and dank hops, plenty of malt. Building bitterness gets a little offputting be the end of the beer; it's a little sharp.
FEEL: Feels a little hollow, not watery, though. Good bright carbonation, a little sticky, but, dries up on finish a little.
OVERALL: Decent, but, not enough to come back to it.

A: slight haze; deep gold in color; 1 finger off white head that receded to a wispy cap; nice lacing;

S: not especially aromatic; floral with a bit of sweetness; oddly, it reminds me of candy corn;

T: follows the nose from start to finish; mild to moderate bitterness at the end;

M: medium bodied; moderate carbonation; lightly dry finish;

O: interesting, but definitely not something I would seek out again;

Clear, golden hued body; thick, sticky, sculpted head. Pine aroma; citrus, too; tangerine. Subtle spicy and hoppy flavors; biscuit malt taste; lemon zest; hop bitterness starts slowly and dominates at the finish. Medium-heavy body; warm and spicy; zingy on the palate.

A tasty west coast IPA with a stunning mouthfeel. Lots of depth and complexity develops throughout the tasting cycle. Very fine stuff...

Shangy's pick 6
LOOK: Pours a most cloudy, murky pale tinted orange brew with a big bubbly white head with good retention and matching side glass lace.
AROMA: Tamed acetic hops, some citrus and some sweet bread malts.
TASTE: This is a lot of malts for an IPA, Almost chewy, really fills the mouth. I like IPA's that go higher than normal with th malts and this one does that.
FEEL: Very thick- Malty . Hops present for sure. Really good malty IPA,

I love Anderson Valley, they are among the best in California. Their Eetah IPA is also quite good, although perhaps not as outstanding as their Heelch O' Hops or Hop Ottin'. Why not?
It is very well done and overall piney in its flavor (something that I love about IPAs), however somehow I feel that its dry mouthfeel combined with a bitter aftertaste is not as punchy and impressive as its forerunners.
Don't get me wrong, this IPA is still way better than your average but maybe not as unique and outstanding - so instead of an A+ I give it a good old A.

eyes...
sitting in my cellar for about 2 months and this still was super fizzy poppin out of the can, three fingers of solid white cresting a slightly hazy straw color brew, the head calms a bit after a few minutes but not less than a finger high, once the rest of the beer was poured into the glass there is near photo worth visage..nice

nose....
caramel malts, really pronounced, strong herbal honey with a pinch of pine in the back, not your typical IPA but a really nice steady aroma.. maltaaaaah! (couldn't resist)

taste etc...
immediately you are hit with the mouth feel, this has more body than lard ass at a pie eating contest, totally fills the mouth, the carbonation is perfectly complimentary to the weight, malt forward (and how) the hops come in at the end to balance out with the honey/sweet flavors, very easy to drink even with the higher ABV, very tasty

verdict?
delish, another winner from one of my old/all time fave breweries, I love crazy hops but man this one stands out as such a balanced offering while still scratching my hop itch

Almost clear golden color with a bit of white foam. Aroma is quite malty with some honey notes and resiny hops. Taste is sweet and malty at first but gets quickly quite resiny with pungent piney hop bitterness. Medium body, medium plus carbonation. A bit harsh and slightly boozy, not my style of IPA.

Purchased a single 12oz can of Eetah! at Total Wine.

Poured nicely into a pint glass, nice head,. Golden, with some hazing.

Smelled a lot like your typical IPA. Citrus/Hoppy. Nothing special.

However, it's flavor and feel made up for it. Definitely some bread/malt, and some nice grapefruit, some caramel and cracker. I'm pretty impressed and shocked. I like Anderson Valley but a few of their beers haven't been as good as others. Great body and easy to go down.

I would definitely have another, but only bought one can.

A thanks to the founding father of the canquest, woodychandler, for this beer. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has an orange color with a 1 inch head. Smell is of tropical fruits, malts. Taste is dank, pineapple, resin, a god malt backbone. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a solid but unspectacular beer.

A pretty mediocre IPA. Poured from a 12 oz can into a pint glass. Quickly foamed up as the can was opened, spilling some contents. Produced a big white head with good retention and thick bands of lacing on the glass. Aroma very lacking, you know there is bitterness there but hardly and flavors leap out at you. Taste is about the same. There is some bitterness and bready malt but, other that the bitterness, there is not much there. I detected a bit of skunkiness in the taste. Mouthfeel is a bit better. Pillowy soft with just one hit of bitterness. Not all that crisp and the skunky taste affects the feel as well. There are much better IPAss out there.
