COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The American IPA is a different soul from the reincarnated IPA style. More flavorful than the withering English IPA, color can range from very pale golden to reddish amber. Hops are typically American with a big herbal and / or citric character, bitterness is high as well. Moderate to medium bodied with a balancing malt back bone.

Citrusy and soapy. Ugh. Sometime seemed real off: I got citrus but there was a weird soapy flavor that didn't sit real well. Not good.

Dogbrick (8141) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 12, 2014
Pours a hazy orange-amber color with a medium foamy off-white head that dissipates steadily. Strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of hops, citrus and malt. Medium body with flavors of floral hops, citrus and toasted malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a short citrusy hops aftertaste. Decent overall.

Pours a cloudy light orange with an average white lasting head. Sweet citrus (orange) and pine aromas. Nice balance of sweet and bitterness with caramel notes. The end has some soapiness; otherwise, a well made brew.

Can from Tipples. No date visible. Pours copper, clear, with a big fluffy white to off white head. Nice floral nose with some light malts shining through, light tropical sweetness, grass. Not bad. Flavor is light grass, hint of fruit, watery malt, and a dirty macro lager finish. Very light bodied with medium carbonation . No this isn't terrible, but there are so many better options out there I don't really know why this exists.

Pours a golden orange with a thick white head. Aroma of malt and pine. Taste is muted piney hops and sweet malt. Average ipa, nothing special

12 OZ Can courtesy of Brian. Thanks. Pour a cloudy amber color with a small white head that has fair retention. The aroma was fairly unremarkable and faint with just a hint of citrus. The taste had a nice dose of bitterness and had a certain murky mixed citrus appeal. The malt base was a mix of breads and biscuit and I liked that a lot. The palate was full and smooth with soft carbonation. Finished somewhat short and dry. Overall: Not bad, not great, but a pleasure to try.

Can. Orangish amber with foamy offwhite head. This IPA just didn’t suit my taste. Malty and nutty aromas and flavors are more dominant than than any hop characteristics.
