look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
Look: Opaque rich orange with an awesome-looking and frothy head that rises quickly to a pillow, and ever-so-slowly settles, leaving sticky lacing behind
Aroma: Mandarins, ruby-red grapefruit, melon, strawberries, wafts of pine, peach, and sweet bready malt
Taste: Melon and berry notes open it up and quickly joined by a huge punch of juicy citrus fruit – Cara Cara oranges, Satsuma mandarins, ruby-red and white grapefruit, and tangelos all in play. Malt is clearly present throughout to provide a sweet bready balance and after the citrus starts to subside, some peach appears as well on the close
Mouthfeel: Full, medium-high carbonation, and a nice bite and light dryness on the finish
Overall: This is tasty stuff. I love what these folks do and although Bodhizafa gets a lot of the fanfare (and rightfully so), this is not only a delicious and well-made option, but I think I prefer this over Bodi for my tastes. An awesome citrus-filled hop presence but with some nice berry, melon, and peach notes to round it out and a bite, dry finish, and killer body to boot

Pours a very murky, burnt orange with decent head, retention and lacing. Plenty of tropical notes on the nose, and very nice. Taste has a nice old school vibe to it. Piney, but not over the top with a little bit of citrus to complement it. Solid beer.

This beer pours a very thick, hazy apricot, with a creamy, yet thin off-white head. A reasonably attractive, heady brew.

The aroma leaps out of the glass as soon as you pour, but quickly fades off. Yeast, booze, canned peaches, dry (brown) pine cone, mango, and cantaloupe are the predominant flavors. Very little green or fresh notes here; more of a sweet fruit salad. Where there is green, it comes across as a sort of reggie-like dankness. Not unpleasant, but it's an odd collection of smells.

Taste leads off with dry, floral hops on the palate, and is followed by additional melon and lilac notes. Alcohol comes through as well, particularly as it warms. Very soft, very fruity, with minimal (although present) bitterness. The finish only dries halfway, leaving a somewhat fatigued palate.

Mouthfeel is somewhat thin and undercarbonated. Not a highlight.

Overall, this is an interesting experiment, even if I'm not certain it was a completely successful one. In my mind, this is sort of a smash-up between those early 1990s "English-style" Pale Ales and IPAs made in the Northeast US (think Smuttynose's Shoals Pale Ale, Geary's IPA) and the new-style NEIPA that focuses on milky, fruit salad flavors. Worth a try, but pass on the six-pack.

This beer pours a very murky, hazy, dank looking straw color. There's a 2 finger white head. The head looks very fluffy, and cloud like. The head retention is damn good, and there's beautiful, lacing on the glass.
The nose has a tropical vibe to it. Pineapple, and grapefruit seem to be the main aromas.
Taste - Tons of pineapple, mango, and grapefruit in the flavor.
The body is good, the hops do cling a bit in my throat.

12oz offering canned in May and sampled in June. Clear gold body, strong nose of green pine and pithy grapefruit, more malts and hints of caramel emerge on the palate, plenty of hop character still with notes of bitter citrus and pith, pine and floral notes. Medium-ish body with a decent smack of bitterness and dryness. Overall this beer is abundant with floral hop notes and impressions of citrus fruit, leans more West Coast.

I believe it's named after the Lucille Street just blocks from the Brewery. A great classic west coast ipa that has citrus elements, but not to the level of a Bodhi. For those that want one of the best classic ipas, this ones for you. Personally, I love the orange flavor in Bodhi a little better. This beer is underrated tho and definitely deserves that 92 rating.

Review #1411

First time drinking a beer from Georgetown Brewing. The beer can's label is simple, no artwork. The beer is 42 degrees and served in a pint glass. The pour of the beer produced a two-fingered head. A creamy and foamy head was created. The white foam has average retention. Some lacing was left on the glass after the head dissipated. The color of the beer is SRM 4, golden yellow with amber hues. This beer is not hazy.

The initial aromas in the beer are grapefruit, floral esters, pine, and orange. Nosing further in the glass, I smell biscuit, bread, lemons, mangos, a touch of herbal, and pineapple. The hop profile in the beer is well rounded.

The flavors in the beer are grapefruit, floral esters, pine, resin, toasted malts, a subtle hint of honey, biscuits, lemons, bread, mangos, bay leaves, fresh-cut grass, a touch of dank, and earthiness.

The mouthfeel of the beer is astringent and crisp.

The body of the beer is medium, medium carbonation, and a medium-plus finish.

This is a solid IPA, with an excellent hop profile. The malts in the beer have a firm backbone, giving the hops structure. The beer does have some malty sweetness, but it is not distracting from the flavor profile. I could see myself enjoying this beer on a summer night.

-- Great aroma from a frothy-headed pour, hazy orange/amber. Nice hop flavor, with a solid malt base that adds body and pleasant mouthfeel. This, along with its brother IPA from Georgetown -- Bodhizafa--- are rapidly becoming one of our beer fridge standard IPAs.

Nice piny aroma, lasting thick, foamy head, clear copper body. Taste is nothing out of the ordinary, hops mild enough for malt flavors to be present. Decent but not outstanding

Pint at Westside Taphouse in West Salem.
Lovely deep orange color..with a nice looking frothy and thick white head.
Nice citrus hop, mango., clementines..sweet.
Taste similar to the nose but isn't over sweet.. aggressive bitterness under the sweetness. Works well.
Perfect carbonated mouth feel .dryish finish..invites quaffing.
Excellent IPA
