Notes / Commercial Description:
The Battlefield IPA is a new twist on an American India Pale Ale. Our master blend of west coast hops and the finest American and European malt distinguishes itself from many IPAs on the battlefield. A hoppy citrus and floral nose invites you to experience the perfectly balanced IPA. The natural bouquet of our hop blend and malt gives this IPA a victory all its own.

A - This beer is a rich golden hue with a healthy finger or two of head that stays.

S - The smell is citrusy and makes me think of cascade and columbus hops. The clean hop aroma is very pleasing to a hophead like myself and gets my saliva flowing prior to tasting this IPA.

T - The taste follows the smell. The hop flavor on the front end is fresh and clean and, while prevalent, not overwhelming. Caramel notes are present and pair with the hop blend extremely well. The finish on this beer is clean and does not leave a bitter taste unlike many IPAs.

M - The feel is best described as rich and creamy without being heavy at all.

O - This is definitely my favorite beer of Avondale's and my go to IPA when out and about, or in their tasting room. A good session IPA in my book and also a good choice for the citrus hop lover or the hoppy pale ale fan.

12 ounce can poured into a snifter. No canned on date unfortunately.

Cloudy gold and amber body. Frothy and sudsy pale white head. Shows good persistence. 4.5

Very nice nose here. Mosaic? Cuz I'm getting all types of melon and mango and passionfruit. Fruity for sure. Sweet fruitiness with a touch of malt and pine and floral qualities. Outstanding aroma. 4.5

Damn! This tastes a bit dated, but there's some great potential here. Melon and mango meet a biscuity, toasted malt flavor and floral bitter flavor. Lemony flavors emerge with some warmth. I'm enjoying these flavors aside from feeling a tad roasted malt heavy. 4

There's a good amount of juiciness, mellow bitterness, medium but light body and a refreshing quality. A bit of toasted malt feel and zest are a bit distracting from the smoothness, but otherwise this beer is great. 3.75

A pleasant surprise. I'm a fan. Glad I have one more can.

Poured from the can into a pint glass. The appearance is a slightly cloudy golden amber with a medium sized white head. The aroma is full of citrus and piney hops. The taste matches the aroma.

This is the best IPA in the state of Alabama. Although I would have liked a little more grassier flavor to it.

Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a cloudy, beige color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell has lots of citrus, touches of pine. Taste is citrus, pine, light malts, medium bitterness. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a flavorful and enjoyable beer.
