COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Weldspatter IPA is not your typical India Pale Ale. First of all, it isnít as aggressively hopped as many other American versions. Second, it isnít quite as pale. Balance is a lovely thing in beers and Weldspatter IPA achieves balance without compromising hop presence. The hop flavor and aroma abound, but the bitterness is held in check to give our IPA a pleasant malt character as well. 7% ABV, 44 IBU. Made with Phoenix, Nugget and Pilgrim hops.

Aroma of pine and citrus hops, very light. Semi metallic finish on the flavor, mostly pine and faint citrus, light and green, not great.

Bottle courtesy of kkearn. Pours a reddish copper color with a large tan head. Aroma is caramel, grass, hops, malt. Flavor is bitter harsh resiny hops, caramel, lots of spices and herbs and a bit astringent. Interesting hop combination gives this a little different bitterness than Iím used to with IPAís.

unclemike (2213) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - JUL 10, 2009
tap at brewpub Medium hoppy nose not overly aromatic with medium malt sweetness contribution. Poured a clear copper color with a small, off white head that left sparse lacing on the glass. Taste is grainy, with some citrus and floral hops. Not a ton of hops, more like a APA, but certainly a very drinakable selection.

kkearn (1165) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 8, 2009
22oz bottle, from Wegmanís (Williamsport, PA). Pours brownish amber, topped with a big tan head. Aroma of overripe fruit and herbs initially, with earthy hops gradually building but never becoming dominant. Flavor begins with caramel which gives way to medicinal herbs, earth, and grapefruity hops. Some hop resin sticks to the palate but fades rather quickly. Not bad, but I enjoyed Bavarian Barbarianís other bottles offerings more.

Sampled at Pints for Pets. Medium hoppy nose not overy aromatic with medium malt sweetness contribution. Medium orange amber with light haze and a thin amber-cream lacing head. Medium body with high carbonation. Starts with light bitter hoppy character and smooth sweet malt. More bitter than expected but has a decent balance. Finish is bitter and light nutty.

Tap at brewery. Pours a hazy almost murky brownish copper with a moderate lasting head. Aroma is a bit dirty doughy yeasty, slight phenolics, ok spicy and citrusy hops- light orange peel adn some pine sap. More piney sappy tacky hops int eh flavor , a bit of crackery amlts, light sweetness, some off phenols or solvent and a raw hop bitterness which was ok.

Draught at Caponeís: Aroma of hops, grass, and hamburger. Poured amber/orange in color with a medium-sized, creamy, rocky, off-white head that lasted throughout. Slightly hazy. Not sparkling, very good lacing. Flavor is lightly sweet and not bitter as it should be for an IPA. Tastes of hops, malts, cream, and butter. Light to medium body. Dry texture. Average carbonation. Sticky, dry finish.

On tap at the Bavarian Barbarian brewery. Poured a medium copper/amber color with a huge sized off white head. Aromas of pine, citrus, somewhat floral, and caramel. Tastes of citrus, pine, and caramel. I like my IPAs to be a little more bitter in the finish.
