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

PsycHOPathy IPA brewed by MadTree Brewing, with an ABV of 6.90% This American IPA pours a nice golden amber color with a thick white head. Lots of nice lacing to this brew, it sticks to the side of the glass well. The smell is rich with hop bitterness, earthly grains and malts. Between the look and the smell of this IPA it is really inviting. This American IPA has the look and smell of most American IPA's on the market, not saying that is a bad thing. Now for the taste, it is bold with flavors and a nice hop bite. This is one nice strong but Smooth IPA. The earthy grains and malts are nice and smooth and really complete this brew. The body of this brew is a nice Heavy medium. I really like how smooth this brew goes down, it is really hard to pick up on the 6.90% ABV in this brew. It is just that smooth. There is alot going on in PsycHOPathy IPA. This American IPA has a super nice balance to it, there is nothing overpowering about this brew. If you are not a fan of Hoppy brews, this is not the brew for you. The mouth feel of PsycHOPathy IPA is Bold, Hoppy, Rich , Clean and Refreshing. Overall I'm giving PsycHOPathy IPA a 4.50 out of 5. I would definitely look this brew up again givin the chance to. If you are in the mood for some good hops look this one up. MadTree Brewing, did a real nice job with this American IPA.

Pours a pale gold with medium head and lots of sticky lace. Nose is somewhat dank with floral and grassy notes as well. Taste is light on malt backbone and is overall light for a 6.9% IPA. Lemongrass and that same grassy floral note dominate. Light mouthfeel. Overall, it is a tasty IPA if you are looking for this specific profile, but might not satisfy some with its small malt backbone and not-so-juicy flavor.
