Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.20%

Notes / Commercial Description:
Andrew Maxwell put over 1.5 decades of recipe development into this India Pale Ale, creating the fourth dimension of flavor. Combining four varities of hops produces a unique beer that has an aggressive hop flavor, bite and aroma without denying the presence of malt which I.P.A.s often lack.

It has the aroma more of a wheat beer than an ipa, with cloves and just a very bland hop aroma in the background. It has more of a citra hop bend to it, but I got a spoiled mango / tropical fruit flavor going on with it. Something was off with this one for sure.

Six-pack of cans purchased in Ohio with the cans labeled as being brewed and canned in Export, Pennsylvania.

Cloudy, orange hued body; very thick, sculptured, white head; sticky clumps of foam on the glass. Pineapple aroma with notes of caramel. Old orange flavor; malty; slow building hop bitterness; earthy. Medium-heavy in body; coarse; initial sugary heaviness with a semi-dry finish.

An okay IPA that won't necessarily disappoint but probably won't wow you either. It has more of a heavier, malt sweetness character and the hop aroma, flavor, and bitterness is rather dull and unexciting.

Very little hops. Tastes like it was brewed with lots of honey. Pretty good mouth fell. Not sure I would call this an IPA if I didn't read the label

12oz can into a tulip glass

Look - Golden honey color. Half finger white head, dissipated quicky
Smell - Tons of floral, tons of sweet malts
Taste - Taste follows. Super floral. Sweet caramel malts

Overall - So many IPAs better than this one. Very malty. Not my style.

Poured from a can bought at Giant Eagle in Washington, PA.

A solid IPA. Doesn't break any new ground but it's easy to drink with a nice hoppy kick.
