Oka Uba IPA has been described as liquid candy. Weighing in at only 57 IBUís (International Bittering Units), Oka Uba proves that hoppy IPAís donít have to be oppressively bitter. Premium malts and lots of late hop additions will make this one of the most drinkable IPAs youíve ever put in your mouth.

coolpop (1394) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - JUN 12, 2012
Draft. Poured amber with a medium-sized off-white head. Aroma and flavor are piney and citrusy, only moderately bitter. Some caramel. Medium mouthfeel. Sessionable if not for the high ABV (if it is, in fact, 8% -- didnít seem it to me).

Tried this at Rocket City Brew Fest. It was being pumped through additional hops, and I didnít make it over to try the straight tap version. However, it was quite nice and citrus with the standard piney notes youíd expect. The only note I took was that I didnít find it as heavy as some of the other IPAs. The description says it was brewed to be more approachable (less bitter). Cool but the I in the IPA usually says get ready for the bitter. Overall, though, pretty good. I didnít realize it was 8% at all.
