COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Loud, sassy, and relentless, the Rude Parrot has an insatiable appetite for hops! Brewed with Vienna, light Crystal, and a touch of Honey malt, this golden hued IPA is aggressively hopped with Simcoe and Citra hops. A big juicy, tropical fruit hop nose yields way to an off dry, pleasantly bitter finish. Drink up while you can, the Rude Parrot is flying circles around you!

Fresh 16oz can. Pours a darker copper gold with faint haze. Very balanced nose, piney slightly fruity and catty hops, present but not cloying malt sweetness. Light mouthfeel, given the appearance. The hop taste is a touch soapy that wasnít really detectable on the nose, they arenít also overly bitter. Just really balanced and getting close to sessionable. Love that they are canning this, but $12 4 packs seem a bit steep. Good for them if they are getting that, but I will stick with Fremont IPA as my go to for under $10 for a six pack.

Draft at Chuckís - from notes. Aroma: Bread, pine, and toast. Taste: Lightly sweet, dry, moderate-to-big bitterness in the finish. Loads of pine. Whereas the aroma made me wonder if this was really an IPA (maybe an English IPA), the taste is where it really asserts itself. Medium body, a shade thin with oily texture. Overall: this was my wifeís favorite of the 4 IPAs. Middle of the pack for me, but certainly nice enough.

thegreenrooster (3081) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - OCT 30, 2013
Pour is a hazy amber with a small white head. Aroma is an ok hop followed by some sweet malt. Flavor is a light dank hop with some of the sweet sticky malt making an appearance. Finish is again a light bitterness with some malt presence. Itís ok, a bit heavy in the malt dept. but hops are here just not aggressively so.

chuckstout (232) - Washington, USA - SEP 18, 2013
Nice floral, citrusy aroma. Pours a Amber/orange with a white head. Starts out thin and kinda off and finishes with a pleasant back end bitterness that lingers for a while. Descent, but could be better if there gettin those hops.

Dogbrick (7243) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 15, 2013
Sample at the Tap House Grill in Seattle. Pours a clear copper color with a medium off-white head that recedes slowly to an outer ring. Strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of hops, citrus and malt. Light to medium body with flavors of citrusy hops and roast malt. The finish is mildly bitter with hops and grapefruit aftertaste. Decent overall.

5000 (6023) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 11, 2013
Can:   Thick dirty amber, slightly fiery, moderate foamy sandy head, nice lacing.   Strong pith and citrusy hop nose.   A bit fruity and citrusy on the tongue.   Not too brash or overly hoppy.   Decent malt base.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Seems fairly well balanced.   Pithy finish, some citrus sweetness.   Decent IPA.

Big can. Looks amber. Aroma of citrusy and lightly fruity/floral hops plus a nice caramel maltiness to balance it. Flavor the same with a good amount of hops. Average texture. A pretty good IPA.
