Shocked. I generally stay away from nitro ipas just because the nitro does reduce the hop aromas and taste. That was partially the case here. The nose is non-existent; whereas the taste is there. Great malt backbone, nice hop combination, great moutfeel. All in all, this is a pretty good ipa.

Nitro is the best way to enjoy a mediocre IPA

It's watery. Doesn't taste like an IPA. Weak. Stout is much better.

Got this one in Buffalo this past summer. Couldn't resist.

From a can into a beer glass.
IBU: 44
Hops: Admiral, Celeia, Topaz, Challenger & Cascade

APPEARANCE: Pours a creamy, thick, one finger nitro head with excellent retention. Lovely cascading pour settles to a hazy burnt orange with no carbonation evident. Good, thick cap remains until the end leaving some nice lacing down the glass as it empties.

SMELL: Milder aromas of caramel, toffee and some melon notes. Not much going on.

TASTE: Pale malts, caramel and toffee sweetness up front. Milder finish of pale malts, earthy hop notes, some melon, hints of grapefruit and some good hop bitterness.

PALATE: Same nitro feel. Creamy and slick on the palate, goes down very smooth and finishes a bit dry.

OVERALL: I always enjoy Guinness dry stout so I couldn't resist giving this one a shot. I also enjoy nitro beers in general so this one obviously fit the bill. The nose and flavor profile are rather pedestrian, as there's really not all that much going on here. Still, if you're a fan of nitro beers, you might really like this one.
