BEER INFO

Brewed by:
DESTIHL Brewery
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.

look: 5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

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

Gorgeous copper/amber color. A very clean and subtle IPA that packs a thorough-bodied punch.

My first stab of this brewery....Pours into a nonic a dull medium golden with a sticky half finger bone white crown that never really settles.First whiffs are of mango and lemon then it kinda peters out...still not bad.A bready palate with light caramel,the hops are more grassy and herbal in flavor wich is a big difference from the aromas.The flavors just don't mach up to the rest of the beer wich is to bad,still pretty decent.

Looks extremely good and smells pretty good. Huge pour with fantastic head and lace. Nose is citrus hops with fresh and pine notes. Pine and citrus bitterness controls the taste early but is eventually brought into balance in the finish and aftertaste.

This is solid for the style and reasonably drinkable at 6.3 and 76.

bought this since it was on close-out.

A Nice, deep amber with solid foamy 2 finger head

S subtle hops with strong malt backbone

T not as good as expected - hard to state why - a bit thin maybe? stale? somethings not right.

M creamy and thick

D maybe I got a bad batch - I would say not bad. (trying to give the benefit if the doubt)
