Right*O*Way IPARight*O*Way IPA
Notes: Right-O-Way IPA is brewed as a Session India Pale Ale with citrusy hops and floral aromas. These flavors, with the addition of lightly kilned malts and moderate hop bitterness, make Right-O-Way a refreshing and easy drinking beer. The sessionable 4.6% abv makes this one of the “easier” beers we’ve ever made. Enjoy it in your favorite glass or straight out of the bottle. Either way, make it Right-O-Way.

SOUTHERN TIER RIGHT-O-WAY IPA 7/2/16

From the Pack O' Pales twelvepack.

Poured from the 12 oz. bottle into a Samuel Adams IPA glass.

a: Clear dark gold/amber with an inch thick white head which receded to thin surface foam and spotty lacing,

s; Nothing notable.

t; Mainly biscuit malt with a mild to moderate hop bite with no especially obvious flavor. Dry finish.

m: Medium, good body and carbonation tingle.

o: A pleasant dinner brew, substantial yet refreshing and easy drinking. Those for whom highly hopped IPAs are too bitter are likely to find this one agreeable.

Pours a pale copper color with a short creamy head. Left a short wall of lacing on the glass.

The aroma is a light grapefruit and pine hop. A bit soapy.

The taste is of a light grapefruit and grapefruit rind. Some general fruitiness and a hint of pine.

The feel is light almost watery. Fizzy carbonation. It's dry on the palate and lightly bitter.

Nice light hop flavor. A bit too light both in flavor and body.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
Appearance: Very attractive rich rose gold color, thick white cap, very good lacing.

Aroma: Citrus, floral and conifer hops, underlying malt presence.

Taste: Hops first followed by mild malt presence. Good medium to full texture in a pleasing way. I don't detect sweetness but there a rich malt presence. Hops follow through and linger in the aftertaste which, while crisp, is clean with little hop bitterness. Well put together, this.

Texture: Medium full.

Overall: A lot to like and little to criticize, well, perhaps critical is too strong a word because the closest to negative I can come is say I would've liked a bit more pronounced malt presence. Fits the IPA model but so do a lot of others.

Golden, cloudy body; thick, creamy head; white rings of lacing down the glass. Citrus and pine aroma; sweetness. Lemon and grapefruit flavors; bitter. Medium body with a soft, watery quality; dry finish.

A decent IPA that comes across with a strong, biting bitterness but little depth or complexity with the grain elements.

Aroma is biscuit and hop, hint of caramel. Nice thick head. Flavor's carbonic tang, hops up front, followed by some malt sweetness, then lingering bitterness in finish. Decent enough brew.

A solid session IPA. Local to me and I personally enjoy this beer. It's a go to in my favorite glass at home as well as out the bottle. Has great floral and citrus aromas as soon as you pop the top. Slight bitterness with a decent malt backbone. Simple and pleasant mouthfeel. Quite refreshing and an easy drinker...
