Notes: 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.

Poured from a 12 oz. can, Has a golden/orange color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of citrus, peaches. Taste is citrus, some mango and malts, kind of bitter for the style. Feels medium/full bodied in the mouth and overall is a solid beer worth trying.

This might be the closest that Coloradans are going to get to having Zombie Dust at their local liquor stores (now that Melvin distributes here). It isn't quite there IMO but pretty dang close to quality and flavor profile. Orange, Grapefruit and a bit of pine bursting forth from a light crackery sweetness. Finishes bitter and dry, actually more bitter than many IPA's. This blows away nearly every APA that I have had and I would actually take this over most IPA's. I will consistently be bringing this back to the mountains from my occasional trips to Denver.

12 oz. Can

Pours a very nice slightlly hazy golden orange color, very nice carbonation, with a very nice two-finger thick/creamy white head, which leaves a few thick/creamy islands and sticky lacing behind. The nose is pretty hoppy, and citrusy, with some pine notes. The taste is pretty freakn' awesome for a APA, but it should be an IPA, but........, very nice hoppyness, very nice citrus, with some pine notes, still APA or IPA, I really never get the pineyness in most of those styles, not until hitting the 9% ABV DIPAs, for the most part. Medium body, ABV hidden very well, their is also some chewyness to this brew, not common in a APA or IPA. Overall, fuckn' surprised my ass. Very Nice! Highly Recommended! I remember Bitterbill telling me of this place many moons ago, and I always remembered it as Thai Me Up, did not know about the Melvin part. Almost wanted to visit this place when still in Utah. Glad I bought a sixer.

Had it on tap in D.C.

L: Dark golden in the glass, lots of bubbles with a white head

S: Strong on citrus, passion fruit, grapefruit, and pine. I really loved the smell on this beer. It smelled fruity and tropical, earthy, and complex.

T: Tasted citrusy, but less than the smell. A good fruity citrus front with a piney middle and dry bitter finish. The malt was present throughout, but not overpowering. Tasted very refreshing and light, very drinkable for an IPA.

O: Loved it. It was complex, clean, light, and refreshing. Each sip would bring some new flavors and elements, and I didn't want the glass to end!

This one is dated 4-12, so 26 days old (in my fridge a few). So why did I buy it? Wyoming. Definitely a bucketlist place - why the hell have I never been there? (Answer: more interested in skiing, etc.). Anyhow, those cowboys have a good one here.

It pours a pretty yellow, with very nice head. The aroma is just there, not too pronounced, for the style. It is very indicative of the taste (baked in, not finishing hops). The rest of the taste is balanced - nice and malty, though only 6% alcohol.

Recommended. It would be great to get one in person some day.

Got on trade! 12oz can served at 4deg C in a draught glass

A- Opens well and pours a tiny 1/2" high white head that films out within a minute or so. Medium gold colour and unfiltered

S- Not much here at all. Must not be any dry hopping at all

T- Light hops. Meaty malt base but not too sugary. Subdued

M- Dry and light

O- Subdued version of their nice IPA's. This is one for the hot summer day. Good flavor, just light on it. It's ok but won't buy if I see it as there are better brews out there. Nice to have though

Food Pairing

This nice brew went well with........ Chicken parm!

Enjoy!!!!
