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.

Well glad I've met you Hubert!
This pale ale does the job nicely. Perfectly balanced between the crystal malts and the citrusy/piney hops.
Moderate carbonation
Good

Pretty standard IPA, but that's not a bad thing. Juicy hops. Tasty.

A: The beer is slightly hazy yellow in color and has a light to moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high bright white head that left a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface, a narrow collar, and lots of lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of citrusy hops are present in the nose—oranges seem to stand out in particular.
T: The taste follows the smell and has flavors of orange citrus hops with a light amount of bitterness.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This APA has a nice dose of citrusy aromas and flavors and is very crushable.

Serving type: can

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.
