New Twain's IPA served in a 20 oz imperial pint glass. Bright, copper in appearance with good clarity. Off-white finger of froth. Subtle aroma of citrus and bready malt. Nice and fragrant hop bouquet. Citrus on the nose, with a dash of the sweet. Nutty maltiness in the middle, finishing very clean. Nicely balanced and one of the more maltier IPAs I've had in a while. At first, I thought this was a highly dosed ESB, but certainly leans more toward an IPA.

4.05/5  rDev +18.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Well-hazed, deep mahogany-hued body with a 3/4 inch-high head of creamy-looking, off-white foam.

Smell: Aroma smelling of caramel-covered bread crusts with milder, more subtle hints of earthiness and fruity citrus.

Taste: Sweet, sugary dark caramel maltiness with some nice toasty tones to it. Medium-plus sweetness. Citrusy, earthy hop character with a medium amount of bitterness. It's definitely more malt-forward than many India Pale Ales out there these days. Finishes smooth and bittersweet.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium-light carbonation. Smooth mouthfeel.

Drinkability: A fine IPA sported a very firm malt backbone, making for a smooth, well-balanced brew, though devoted hopheads probably wouldn't be too excited about it.
