Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Sticky Icky Icky is a radiantly clear, copper-colored American India Pale Ale. It is loaded with citrusy hop aromas of oranges, nectarines, and apricots. This light, yet full bodied ale is perfectly balanced by equal parts sweet malt and juicy hops. A medium bitterness along with a subtle earthiness lingers in the finish.

This new American India Pale Ale is what Ryan Hale, the head brewer at the Bellaire pub, referred to as his quintessential IPA. Ryan combined all of his favorite hops resulting in what he described as “pure juicy goodness”. This beer is loaded with all of the big citrus and fruity flavors American hops can offer.

12 ounce bottle into a tulip glass. Bottled 10/3/16, had 11/17/16.

Pours a bright, medium gold, a little cloudy, with a one inch head and some foamy lacing. Smells of pine, grapefruit, pineapple, orange, yeast, light malt, light funk on the pour. As the hop aroma fades- and it does, a sweet aroma emerges. The taste gives more citrus than the nose- grapefruit, orange. some pineapple, some pine and resin in the background, malt, yeast, a strong amount of bitterness throughout. Smooth, well carbonated, a good body, fuller for the style.

Good flavor, well balanced between the hops and the malt. Good aroma early, enjoyable to drink. Worth trying a couple bottles.

Pours a hazy, maize color. 1/4 inch head of a white color. Good retention and great lacing. Smells of piney hops, spicy hops, slight alcohol, resin, yeast, and slight earthy malt. Fits the style of an American IPA. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. There is also a dryness and bitterness. Tastes of piney hops, spicy hops, slight alcohol, resin, yeast, and slight earthy malt. Overall, good appearance, aroma, body, and blend.

Another very good ipa. Short's caught my fascination because I like the state its brewery is located in, but none the less a solid offering. I could elaborate more. I just think this has the right amount of bite, water quality and timing. I'm in the mood for ipa's it winter!

Acquired from CapCollector16, so a big “Thank You” goes out to him. Poured from a 12oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a deep gold color with a large off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick but spotty lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains grassy and funky hops, citrus and caramelized malts.

T: The taste starts out with a strong grassy hops bitterness that is quickly followed by sweet flavors of citrus and caramel. The malt character is hearty but not too heavy and brings a good balance. The after-taste is slightly hoppy and slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is clean.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, good kick, good representation of style, this is a solid IPA to drink for a long time.
