look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Type: 12 oz bottle
Glass: pint
From: Plum Market in Ann Arbor
Price: $10 a six-pack

Appearance: orange in color and with perfect clarity. a finger and a half of a white foamy head that hangs around and leaves a nice lacing.

Smell: herbal and citrus hops mixed with a fruitiness and a touch of grains

Taste: starts off with the fruit followed up by some hops. bread comes in lightly but is quickly taken over by more hops.

Mouthfeel: bitter and a bit sticky, but not overly either

Overall: this is the first IPA that i have truly enjoyed every sip of. I love the bread flavors that come through and the fruity beginning. definitely a must try for the quality and price

I wasn't expecting much from this IPA, but was pleasantly surprised. It's visually appealing, and pours a medium gold with a thin head that slowly trickles down the lengths of the glass. The nose is loaded with sweet malt, a little bread, and subtle hops...not it's best quality, but not unappealing by any stretch. The Commodore is sticky, sweet, and nicely balanced with ample piney, bitter hops. A little too much carbonation distracts from the thick, chewy texture.
