BEER INFO

Brewed by:

Illinois, United States
destihl.com

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.30%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
This West Coast/Rocky Mountain-style India Pale Ale is back-hopped for a more intense hop bitterness, flavor and aroma without the balance of caramel malts like our Midwest-style Baldock IPA. It has medium-high alcohol content, high fruity, floral and citrus-like American-varietal hop character, deep golden color and medium maltiness.

Starts crisp and citrus up front with a bitter twange that follows. Finishes with an oily thick finish.

Taste Rating in Words: It's someone playing the bones, it's different but entertaining.

Destihl Brewery "Vertex IPA"
on tap @ Taphouse 23, Bridgeport, PA on 13 February 2015

Notes: Clear copper body beneath a creamy head of off-white that holds well and leaves some nice lacing behind. Moderately hoppy aroma of orange, grapefruit, and pineapple over a caramelish malt base. The flavor follows with little change. Solid bitterness. Medium bodied with a standard carbonation. It finishes dry with some residual fruit and earth. Basic.

Found this at devil dogs for 4 bucks a pint. Pours a bright yellow color little orange hue with an intense half inch of foam that settles to a nice ring. Smell is smooth IPA goodness bitter cone meets honey gram malt. Taste is very smooth good but bitter. Balanced and aggressive. Smooth body light to medium easy drinker. Overall a great affordable surprise from a brewery I never had before

Pours an effervescent honey color with 2 fingers of rocky cream colored head. Insane lacing & head retention

S: Citrus, mango & breadyness

T: Follows the nose, dryness, & a little lime up front. Mango, tangerine & light breadyness as this warms, a little pineapple as this warms. Finishes with pineapple, tangerine & a little grapefruit

MF: Medium body, slight carbonation, great balance

A very nice IPA, well worth picking up
