Had at the brewery the day after Christmas, pours a clearer golden color with a foamy white head that leaves spotty lacing. Smell is slightly malty and grainy with a resinous hop background, nothing really jumps at you though. Taste is cracker malts first, grain and subtle sweetness, juicy and herbal hops come in at the end and linger a bit. Finish is dry, light bodied, easy to drink. Overall it's a nice IPA, nothing mind blowing and quite balanced, errs of the side of light. Great can art, though!

Attracted by the name, enjoyed the experience. Served in a pint glass at my local Casual Pint, perhaps a bit TOO cold which may be washing out some of the flavor. Decent, just not as thrilling as the name might suggest.

12 oz can poured into nonic pint glass dated 12/10

A: soap fat bubbly head body is a slightly hazy dirty gold in color

S: some pineapple and resin has a sweet candy like smell

T: very light fruit some bits of floral hops and a touch of resin with a lot of a crackery finish

M: a little slick oily upfront with a dryer finish

O: fairly easy drinking IPA but nothing to astonishing either. Not a super hop bomb and a little too much cracker on the end. The hop profile is a little light.

Mispillion River Brewing "Reach Around IPA"
12 oz. can, "KCCO 12/18/14"
$1.99 @ Total Wine & More, Claymont, DE

Appearance: Slightly hazy golden body. Creamy white head. Average retention and lacing.

Aroma: Citrusy with a light hint of pine over grainy, lightly biscuity malt.

Flavor: As the nose suggests, but with a fuller hop character that includes some herbal notes. A solid bitterness balances it, seemingly higher than the 35 IBUs listed on the label. It finishes dry with soft, lingering pine and earth.

Mouthfeel: Standard. Medium bodied and gently crisp.

Overall: No negatives, but no real positives either. Standard fare. Average.

Poured fro a 12 oz. can. Has a dark golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of hops, citrus, some pine. Taste is well balanced hops and malts, some pine, very easy drinking. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is not a hop bomb, but a good IPA nonetheless.

Poured from the can into a Spiegelau IPA glass. Canned August 24th 2015.

Nice pale amber orange. Slightly clear body, with good rising carbonation a little small, but manages just a hint. Head is off white, just barely reaching three fingers and a big off white, fine swiss cheese bubbled appearance. Creamy top slightly, nice clumping, and good staying power.

Nice solid hop aroma. Hints of faint earth, peach like fruit, and a mix of dank qualities coming forward. Excellent balance of fruit and earth, it's peach and dank, almost mushy quality getting into nearly over-ripe fruit. Quite impressive actually, borderline fantastic and inviting, but a little messy.

At this point the formula doesn't seem to want to be messed with. Light bodied, and just hinting at a little bit mineral water feel and finish, but that doesn't stop the goods from being delivered. Mild sensing peach and an almost clean finish surprisingly. A bit of wet stickiness seems to permeate the palate though. Slight toasty grain manages to really stick around and finish for an aftertaste.

A real neat tasting IPA, almost like a reverse classic East coast style, if that's even possible. Comes off nothing spectacular but certainly memorable.
