BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Avondale Brewing Co.
Alabama, United States
avondalebrewing.com

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.50%

Availability: Year-round

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. You will agree the battle has been won when you reward yourself with our outstanding spin on the IPA.

Fantastic west coast style IPA. Very well balanced between the citrus and pine notes. Ever since this beer was re-worked this year it has quickly become my go to IPA and far and away the best in Alabama.

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.

I'm very impressed with this beer. Has a hint of piney notes with some citrus an floral notes as well. Fairly standard for a strong American IPA, but the piney flavors really balance out the bitterness and make it a great beer.

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.

2 month old can poured to YETI.
Golden amber with thick, off white head.
Light on the nose. Floral hops, light pine, rich malt.
Tastes great. Not specifically fruity, piney, or bitter, but a great balance of them all.
A good IPA.
