Amber color with essentially no head. The aroma is a mixture of bitter hops like summit. Decent hop profile on the palate with an emphasis on west coast varieties. The malt is up front with mild cracker, just enough to balance. A little dry on the palate. OK.

This came with a rocky, medium-tan head with decent retention. It had a great Cascade hop nose which caused my mouth to water in anticipation. The color was a beautiful deep-amber with NE-quality clarity. The mouthfeel was medium-to-full with a definite hop presence on the tongue. The finish had a wonderfully lingering hoppiness. More of this, please.

On tap at Kelly’s in ABQ.

Aroma: Nice, but mild C-hop aroma.

Appearance: Hazy orange amber glass with a weak head that left little lacing, much less than an IPA should.

Flavor: Mild grassy note to the hops. Lists 60 IBU’s, but the overall flavor made it seem much less. Fair base, but nothing special. There must be a house yeast as all the beers I tasted had a shared common thread. Overall, this was just a bit watery and thin.

Mouthfeel: Medium body, lower carbonation, mild oil.

Overall Impression: A watery Pale ale. All Kelly’s beers just seemed a bit “cafeteria”.

Kellys ipoa. Pale golden clear yellow. Nice head nice lacing. Smell is of sprouted malt like grape nuts. It leaves me a little flat. The taste though is good. It hits you with a bracing hop bitterness. Surprising for the lack of hop aroma. This is a good tasting ipa. As it warms there is a little spiciness. Mouthfeel is light on the higher end of the carbonation scale. I could down a lot of these. Definitely unbalanced with the aroma though. There is potential here for a very good beer
