Good entry level IPA offering. Checks all the boxes you'd expect from an IPA with pine and citrus notes in both the smell and taste. Orange peel and grapefruit is most present. Great at a backyard BBQ and for casual drinking.

Buddy of mine brought one back from his trip to Seattle. Poured very clear orangy-amber. Not much aroma; some pine and a bit of sweet orange. Taste is rich and full, sharp orange rind, then that minty coolness on the tongue afterwards...love it. Excellent beer.

I bought a six-pack (cans) of Rude Parrot in a bottle shop. Poured in to a pint glass.

Pours a copper/gold color, chill haze, with a thick off-white head.

Smell is a mostly hop aroma. Pine and citrus scents.

Taste is balanced, a malt presence up front, with a bitter pine and citrus finish.

Mouthfeel is clean with a dry bitter aftertaste.

Overall a good IPA. Maybe a bit over carbonated, but good.

12 oz. can:

Pours hazed amber with a fluffy lasting white head. Lacing sticks.

The smell is of grapefruit, pine, some caramel.

The taste is of grapfruit, orange, pine. Caramel sweetness ties the hops together though the bitter-leaning finish.

It has a smooth medium body.

An all-round nice IPA with a good hop profile and caramel sweetness to balance it out.

12oz can from a 6-pk purchased at Total Wine in Spokane Valley, Washington, for $8.99. No obvious freshness date. Presumably, “Single IPA”, printed on the can (incidentally different from the one pictured on BA) is a reference to it not being a “Double IPA,” as there are no claims otherwise that this is brewed using a single hop variety.

Poured into a Mad Bomber IPA glass, this was a chill-hazed, orangey dark amber color, with a big, sticky, beige-colored head that hung around or a bit and left lots of lace on the sides of the glass.

Big, grapefruity and piney hop aroma. This smells like it’s definitely in the “traditional” PNW IPA style.

Big, grapefruity, bitter flavor, but not a whole lot else. It tastes good, but is a little one dimensional.

Medium bodied, with a resiny, sticky, oily mouthfeel.

This is probably the least interesting IPA I’ve had that could also be called, “dank.” It’s a decent beer, but nothing to get too excited about. For a decent price, I’d drink it in a bar, but I’m not sure I’ll be buying another sixer of it, as there’s just too many other options I enjoy more.

12oz can served in a tulip. Pours an orange Amber color with a whit frothy head. Nose is floral, citrus and pine. Taste is much the same with some bitterness on the finish. A decent beer.
