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.

12oz, canned on 08/28/18. Slightly hazed golden body with a sticky off-white colored head. Intriguing hoppy aroma; juicy and tropical; citric and fruity. Nice flavor notes with a big citrus burst of grapefruit & orange; mango, pine, a touch of pineapple, and a light biscuity/caramely malt presence. Medium body, ample carbonation, great balance with a crisp and dry finish. This was really good! Definitely recommendable and I'll be buying more of this in the future.

Citrus aroma - grapefruit, sharp. Aggressive pout into a nonic Imperial pint glass. Hazy orange, a bit dull rather than bright. Tall white head, thick and creamy, that recedes moderately to a somewhat tall bubbly ring, leaving rings of connected lacing. Solid body in the feel. The taste is citrus, but mild, not sharp as the aroma. Easy drinking. Nice solid bread malts. Citrus remains throughout middle, finish, aftertaste. Just a touch of bitterness in the finish. Excellent APA.

Poured 12oz can into glass. Stamped canning date is '08/28/18'.
Medium gold colored body. Pours one finger of off white head, which settles to thin cap and ring. Leaves a good amount of spots of lacing.
Lots of fruity aroma upon opening. Includes sweet orange and peach. Also some piney smells.
Taste is juicy, sweet, and piney bitter. Orange and peach, and a little biscuit.
Medium to full mouth feel. Good carbonation.
Very chewy ale, with a very good balance of hops, and the backing of malts. Has some bitterness but is very refreshing. I could drink more than one of these in a session.

Pours a somewhat cloudy light golden orange color. Thin white head dissipates steadily leaving a ring of foam along the outside of the beer and a couple spots of foam on top.

Aroma is quite fragrant and has notes of orange, peach, mango and a touch of pine and some cracker malts.

Taste has some light orange and mango notes with a more pronounced piney bitterness. Somewhat grassy, but mostly piney notes come through on the finish. Lingering bitter flavor sticks around on the palate. Strong cracker malt backbone. For as fragrant as the beer is, the flavors just don't pop like I anticipated.

Feel is light, lightly carbonated. Semi-dry finish. Easy drinking.

Overall this was an enjoyable IPA.Nicely crafted and certainly above average.

Overall a fantastic beer. If I had to give it a critique, I would say that it lacks a little bit of carbonation.

Canned on 8/10/18. 12oz can poured into a tulip. Pours golden with great clarity and transparency; big fluffy white head that slowly falls leaving great thick retention and sticky lacing. The aromas are citrus forward along with some tropical notes. Some bread and crackers. Some malts. The flavors basically follow the nose. Orange and grapefruit are there. Some pineapple. Some fresh grass in the mix. Subtle hints of caramel. Malts do their thing. Moderate bitterness. Solid hop flavors. Finishes on the juicier side. Alcohol goes unnoticed. Mouthfeel is on the lighter side of medium-bodied with moderate carbonation. It's smooth and easy to drink.

This is a pretty solid brew. I guess it drinks more like an IPA than a traditional pale ale, but it works. Enjoyable stuff.

Slightly hazy gold-amber with a bubbly cream-colored froth, this beer's lighter ABV is a welcome change for a lineup of higher octane IPAs coming out of this Wyoming brewery we're enjoying for the first time here in NE Ohio. The lighter ABV leaves room to express a lighter dankness with lemony weeds, onion, Sweet Tarts, and even a bit of crackery malt. The medium body has a filling froth as it finishes semi-dry.
