Notes / Commercial Description:
Hubert? I’ve heard of him. A friend of a friend knows him. Apparently he’s awesome, but we’ve never met. Well. It’s about time you did. Most you connoisseurs would just call him an IPA, but we call him an MPA. The Melvin Pale Ale. A welcomed hand shake to your taste buds. Light, crisp, fresh and a little bitty bitter. Lets just say he won’t be that jerk that leaves you at the bar at 2am. He’s low in alcohol. What a nice guy… that Hubert.

-spiegelau ipa glass. 11.10.17. consumed 05.29.18.

A: Bright orange coloring is dense in nature, with little back lighting coming through. A strong sense of effervesce is seen. Soapy textured head is pearl white in color, and leaves a good amount of sloppy lace on the vessel.

S: Fresh lemony aroma is wet and fresh with some soft, lightly dry lemon grass hopping. Some dry grains provides moderate support and strength. There is a faint hint of onion grass.

T: Spicy orange and citrus hops, lightly dry for flavor. Again there is a small presence of onion-grassy hops, small bittering with some herbal citric and basil bite on the finish. Dry flowery sense and dry hop bittering occur on the finish along with some dry grainy dust.

M; Lighter side of medium weight for the mouthful. Soft and smooth feel, bittering.

O: Overall a solid level of hopping, reminded me a bit of Dale's Gumba with the grassy onion hops. Good flavor, nothing that really stands out, but little to complain about. Hits the middle of the road mentality, good drinkability, nice presentation and a decent crispness rounds things out.

A: Poured from the can into a Piraat tulip/snifter-type glass. Body is hazy golden amber with a nice 1-finger white head on top, which leaves behind nice sheets of lacing on the glass.

S: Nose is a bit subdued - though maybe "balanced" is a better description. Modest lighter malt foundation is followed by piney and citrusy hops.

T: Pretty much follows the nose: modest crackery malt foundation is followed by old-fashioned (meaning, circa 2005) piney and citrusy hops (lemony, grapefruit peel). Finishes quite dry and lemony bitter.

M: Medium in heft, carbonation is modest and fine-bubbled.

O: Good stuff. Maybe a bit too bitter for an APA, but as an old-time hophead, I'm good with it. An easy drinker, that's for sure.

This ale is fabulous! Def. a pale ale but with tons of mouth feel and flavor - and thankfully, not too bitter (like say Dales Pale Ale which I tired of because of the overly-bitter quality). Lives up to my expectations after falling in love w/ their IPA. Note: At $15 a sixer, it is pricey, in leagues with Great Divide for instance.

Poured into a becher pint glass.
The appearance was a golden bronzed yellow color with a sly transparency about it. Some carbonation was seen rising gently to fill a lingering cap of a slim white foamy head. Light spotty lace ran around the glass gently, slightly sticky.
The aroma had some honey, and sweet citrus flowing over some sweet crisp cracker malt.
The flavor seemed to have mirrored the aroma fairly spot on but also providing a gentle crisp bitterness coming in slightly. Moderate aftertaste of the honey and cracker letting in a touch of bitterness.
The mouthfeel was about medium bodied with a fair sessionability about it. Carbonation felt spot on. ABV felt as projected. Nice amount of bitterness in the finish but still at the APA level.
Overall, well worthy of an APA to come back to. Was $2.99 from Craft Beer Cabin at Plattsburgh, NY.

Pours an unclear yellow, with thick, soapy foam.

Smell is citrusy with plenty of piney resin backing it up.

Taste is piney and citrusy with a substantial bitterness carrying it. A solid malt base keeps it well balanced.

Mouthfeel is medium, well carbonated.

Overall, a really good pale ale, that should really be called an IPA as far as taste goes.
