Modest hop flavors with a pleasant tangy and winey sensation. A little orange in the nose. Grapefruit peel aftertaste. Some malty and roasted flavors with a bitter finish. A very average IPA. I'm always hoping for clean and flavorful hops. What does "SIngle IPA" mean, anyway? From the 12 oz can purchased at Elizabeth Station in Bellingham.

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.

Poured from a 16.oz can in to a .5L glass.

Appearance: A beautiful copper hue, with brilliant clarity until the dregs came out...at which point it was a cloudy mess. Dense, 2-finger head was persistent throughout. 3.75/5

Smell: Wonderful C-hop aroma! Pine and citrus dominate. Has just a subtle hint of sulfur that is a little distracting, but tolerable. 3.5/5

Taste: Malt character is almost non-existent. Moderate hop flavor, and firm hop bitterness dominate. Yes, I understand that this is an IPA, but even IPA's should have some semblance of balance - albeit towards the hops. Unfortunately, the sulfur aroma also interferes with the perception of flavor. I tried exhaling through my nose while sipping, but it doesn't seem to help. 3.25/5

Mouthfeel: Perfect level of carbonation, but the beer feels thin and watery. Finish is moderately astringent - heightened by the lack of malt character. 3/5

Overall: This beer has the foundation to be a beautiful IPA. I have tremendous respect for the brewers not trying to imperialize a normal IPA (at 5.9%, it would be a wonderful, session IPA). Unfortunately, there are some issues in production that prevent this beer from being rated 'outstanding'. For brewers that are canning their product, and either can-conditioning or simply fining the beer, PLEASE indicate these facts somewhere on the can (in addition to some date coding if possible). I apologize for the soapboxing. 3.25/5

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.

Thanks to GRG1313 for sharing this one at his tasting.

Pours a murky honey orange with a foamy khaki head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus fruit, and citrus zest aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus zest flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is tasty but has a slightly better hop presence in the aroma.
