A really nice IPA. More hops than anything, some grains. The bitterness and seeetness is balanced nicely. The taste is bold immediately, but balanced. You can't go wrong here.

Pours a lovely copper amber color. Has a potent citrus aroma with hints of pine. Classic IPA taste with leftover pine on the tongue. Moderately hoppy with a strong malt finish.

= A pretty well rounded IPA that is welcomed any time it's around in my book.

Pours a beautiful clear orange amber color with a full white frothy head that lasts. Smells mildly of citrus and bread. Taste is very malty for an IPA. Not at all what I was expecting. The feel was good but Overall I didn't want to finish the glass.

Poured from bottle best by 6/12. Smooth mouth feel with slight bite at end. Classic IPA taste with less bitter aftertaste. Hazy amber color. Good for multiple refills.

From my Tap a deep amber color, with a small white head. The smell could use more Hop aroma through late Hopping to hide some of the alcohol (it is 7.5% ABV). There is a bitter sweetness in the smell of this brew. The taste bitter with hops, grains and malts. This is a nice drinking IPA. Commodore Perry IPA has a real nice balance. There is nothing overpowering in this brew. The mouthfeel is bold with bitterness and a nice clean finish. Overall I'm giving Commodore Perry IPA a 4.5 out of 5.

From a 12 oz bottle thanks to Kevin from work and enjoyed in a snifter.
This nice IPA is straight forward and solid as a steam fired ship. Luminous amber
color with a firm head of white foam that settles to a frothy ring, thin layer, and nice lacing
it is a perfect IPA. Nose of honey malts, light grains, and subtle herbal and grassy hops with a touch
of pine. Flavors follow but exceed in quality with honey and grain notes on the fore, herbal and grassy
hops on the aft, caramel and pine bring up the middle and march to the finish with medium
carbonation and a bitter lightly sweet finish. Overall an excellent version of an IPA.

Cheers
