BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Moody Tongue Brewing Company
Illinois, United States
moodytongue.com

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.90%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
The inspiration for this beer came in the form of a summer farmers market and the abundance of fresh fruits and produce. The resulting IPA showcases a bright tropical aroma of stone fruits that balances the grapefruit acidity of the Chinook hops. The beer’s crisp profile refreshes and delights taste-buds and craves pairings such as slow-roasted pork shoulder or a slice of warm peach pie.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Saturated sunset orange tone, initial foam that fades quickly with no lace.
Aroma is nice and citrusy, sort of nebulous, not really nectarine but orange/grapefruit is present.
Taste is mildly bitter and citrus peel notes come through, lingering into the bitter aftertaste.
Light to medium bodied, moderate carbonation, easy drinking. A pretty textbook IPA.

12oz bottle, probably from @mr-jj. Date on the label is 11-22-16, so it's in my range of freshness, but on the borderline.

Pours a deep amber with a medium head and medium carbonation. Smell is a little muted, piney, definitely some stonefruit.

Taste is approaching the "old hay" flavor that I associate with too-old IPAs, but not there yet. Hop profile makes me think primarily of west coast piney bitter IPAs, but there's a clear thread of nectarine or peach running through it that goes pretty nicely. Fruitiness comes out a little more as I drink a little more of it.

Mouthfeel is maybe a little too still, but pleasantly thick. Overall, this is a nice, tasty beer.

Aroma is tangerine, fruit bread and sweetish malts. The flavor is tangerine, earthy/sweetish malts and a spicy/citrus hop mixed with dry in the finish.

From notes taken 9/15 on a visit to Chicago.

Pure amber in color with a subtle aroma that includes notes of citrus and malt. Tastes of light fruits, and grain. Not a whole lotta' bitter. There's a slight spiciness in the back ground. Light in body.

Always a highlight of any trip to seek out the new and local. And while this isn't necessary a top-tier IPA, it sure was fun drinking it, if for nothing more than the spirit of exploration.
