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.

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.

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

Appearance is clear light gold with white cap and moderate lacing.

Aroma is mostly piney hops with a sharp character.

Taste is hop forward with the full impact maintained to the finish. Some residual hop bitterness in the aftertaste. Malt character is present but remains behind and below the hops.

Overall this is a competent though unremarkable IPA.
