On tap at the brewpub.
copper-amber body with a good head. Nice hoppy aroma with a solid bread background.
Citrus and evergreen flavors. The flavor of the hop mix is not entirely to my liking but will certainly speak more to others.

Medium carbonation.

Grapefruit colour with white head, white lace. Lots of creaminess. Appropriate significant carbonation, carbonation bubbles. Fairly high IBU, and a good bitterness. Smooth drinker.OK for an American IPA, good bitterness like a British ESB with a higher IBU profile.

Poured from the tap into a shaker pint glass.

A very gorgeous orange amber body, but while cloudy looks a little hazy also. Very good lacing while drinking giving some nice rings of sheets, and an off white head that is foamy/almost soupy.

Bouquet is kind of small very wet and clean smelling, but a distinct faint orange wet citrus bent. Not much else.

Light malt on the taste and that wet citrus orange hop feel as before. Borderline tea and herbal qualities too, almost feeling English IPA like to some extent. Weak orange juice feel in the mouth.

Overall a simple good example, almost a mish mash of style between American/English, but small on taste and body. This is not anything like a hop bomb or a big citrus or pine blast either. Easy drinking and simple, a good beer.

this particular version is listed at 7.6 percent abv

a: pale copper in color, not much head to speak of

s: the hops display a juicy grapefruit profile on a standard pale malt structure, big citrus rind, sugars well in check, not bad

m: carbonation and body both in the light-medium range

t: big grapefruit flavors ride over simple, grainy pale malt, very pulpy and juicy, tart grapefruit rind, the citrus takes over - not much complexity, finishes with a moderate-high acidity

d: like the grapefruit hops but more balance and range of flavor would be key, still a refreshing drink

standard pint at the brewpub

District chop house, Am IPA, draft, 6.6abv

A clear amber in color. Small head, didn't last long, however had good lacing.

S Floral sweet hop aroma. Best part of this beer other than drinking it.

T Huge American hop flavor, wonderful piney flavor, acidic, and earthy. There is a good dose of malt as well. Not too sweet, good attenuation.

M Medium body, maybe a little light on carbonation.

D Very good example of an Am IPA. No problem having more than one of these.

I'm concerned some of the reviews on here indicate a bad pour by the bartender. I particularly enjoyed this beer. Smooth, citrus-smell with about an inch of foam. Delightful smoothness for an IPA, with recognizably orange undertones. Well done by Barrett and his team.
