A respectable golden hued body beer sporting a frothy, sticky, white head. Nice aroma combination of light malts and pine and citrus-forward hops. Bitter, citric, bread crust-like flavor; white pepper. Medium-heavy body; velvety; semi-dry finish.

A well-balanced, decently complex IPA. It brings on some nice hop tones; bitter and spicy. The feel is a bit slicker than many IPAs yet very welcome. A fine offering and well-worth seeking out...

I had this on draught in a sports bar in Cincinnati. 16 oz. pour in a pint glass. It pours a medium amber color with a nice layer of milk-white head and lots of lacing with good retention. The smell is subdued and primarily malty with mild pine, grapefruit, grass, and hops. This is a decidedly malt-forward IPA with brown bread and caramel. There is also notes of grapefruit but the hops play only a supporting role. This ale is fairly creamy with pleasing carbonation and it's 6.9% ABV gives it substance without distracting from the other attributes. Overall, PsycHOPathy is an excellent example of a southern style, malt-forward IPA. It's a nice change of pace from over-the-top West Coast and NE versions.

Canned on 8/9/17. 12oz can poured into a tulip. Pours a hazy glowing golden with a big chunky eggshell white head that slowly falls leaving great thick retention and sticky lacing. The aromas are floral and citrus forward. Bread and crackers are there along with some malts. The flavors are pretty bold. More floral notes leading the way followed by more citrus. Lots of grapefruit along with some melon. Fresh grass and pine in the mix. Mild resinous characteristics. Nice hop flavors and hop bitterness. Malts are there, but don't dominate. It finishes juicy and dry at the same time. Alcohol goes unnoticed for the most part. Mouthfeel is very nice. It's medium-bodied with moderate to active carbonation. It's very fluffy, smooth and easy to drink.

This is a nice IPA. It's bold and refreshing. The craftsmanship is on point. This is my first time having something from MadTree, and I can say it's a solid first impression.

PsycHOPathy IPA | MadTree Brewing. Poured from the can into a pint glass, this brew's got a two finger thick off-white head, webbed lacing, and medium golden amber body.

I smell a cracker malt foundation with big, juicy pine and grapefruit hops.

Tastes pleasantly bitter and juicy throughout with an appropriate bite at the end.

Medium mouthfeel with mild carbonation.

Overall, I'll choose to give PsycHOPathy IPA | MadTree Brewing a 4.25
