BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Moody Tongue Brewing Company
Illinois, United States

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.

A solid and very drinkable IPA. Not bitter and a great starter IPA for those wading into the IPA waters.

i like this beer a lot, and i love the idea, but to me its just not all that hoppy, and chinook may have been a weird choice for this. its clear and golden in the glass, sunny and shiny and appealingly lightly carbonated, oddly enough for me (i almost always prefer high bubbles, but it works here). it really does smell and taste like nectarines, natural and just short of perfectly ripe, like post the rock hard stage but pre the juicy bruised dripping ripeness, probably exactly when they actually sliced and added them. its not that sweet for how natural it is, and there is some hop bitterness, but i dont get all that much flavor from them, more of a generic chinook profile to me than one robust and fresh and full of life. i do like the grain complexion coming through, sort of a golden ale type base, a lot of these fruited ipa types just taste like the fruit, or like dry hopping, but this is delicate in those respects and tastes like beer, and i really appreciate that. enjoyable nectarine all the way though, so authentic that its obviously not peach, also really cool. these guys seem to have an awesome grasp on the culinary elements in their beers, and while i think this would have been more compelling with something like nelson instead of chinook, its a cool beer and definitely its own entity! good stuff.

Saturated sunset orange tone, initial foam that fades quickly with no lace.
Citrusy orange/grapefruit aroma, not getting any nectarine or peach.
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.
