COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Fish Tale Organic India Pale Ale is a medium-bodied beer with a rich golden color. The organic pale and crystal malts lay down a firm malt body. This provides the backbone for an assertive hop profile featuring organic Pacific Gem. The moment the Mighty Fish Brewers sampled this pungent and resinous New Zealand hop, they knew it would be perfect for their Organic I.P.A. The result: A Cascadian treasure.

Citrus aroma, pale slightly cloudy. I dont get how anyone says this is a bitter/ hoppy IPS. I find it almost totally neutral even as a Pale Ale. No bitterness or hoppy flavor at all, weak to mild Ale at best. Hardly characteristic as an American IPA, skip this one unless you fancy a flat, tasteless Ale.

Mild and earthy, a bit dry with subtle grapefruit and hops. A bit dirty and trashy, though. The finish fades rather quickly. A bit bland for an IPA.

joejames (361) - Jacobus, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 22, 2015
Bottle to shaker, pours hazy orange gold, One finger frothy white head. Some lacing and retention. Aroma grass and oranges. Taste is on the sweet side, some citrus hop bitterness. Medium body, average carbonation, mouth feel is slick. Finishes lightly bitter. Tasting notes of pine, lemon, grass, hay, caramel. This is more of a pale ale to me, but drinkable.

kramer (5360) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 13, 2015
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear light copper body with a one finger foamy beige head that had decent retention. The nose is light on the hops, some floral and lightly citrusy notes, with a slightly sweet caramel malt base. The flavor is way too heavy on the malt for my tastes in an IPA. The caramel and husky malt base almost completely obscures what little hoppiness in in here. Lingering husky and grainy finish. Medium bodied and a bit clingy with soft fizzy carbonation. Meh, pretty poor IPA.

Hazy orange pour, quick off white head. Nose is slightly woody malt. Bitter. Middle is lightly caramelized malt and citrus. Finish hasa cedar like bitterness.

An average IPA that kind of looks like an Amber Ale with a malty color, but it was very smooth. I had it on tap at California Craft in the Bay Area, CA and I’d probably have it again on tap. Not sure if I would ever get it in the bottle though...

A nice hoppy and bitter IPA. Malt heavy and also has notes of pine with a good hop bite.

bulldogops (1140) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 8, 2015
Rating #1139 - 27.06.2014 - On tap @revolutionyeg. Pours a golden amber - bubbly white head. Grassy malt aromatics - some citrus, some pine, floral. Palate is a little unbalanced - lots of grassy, herbal notes, sharp bitterness that overwhelms.

One of the better looking pale ales. Strong hop taste like always yet still smooth to the palate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Murky orangey brown. Smells of citrus, rotten banana, acetone, and dark fruit. Taste is dark fruit and citrus.

Sledutah (6044) - Utah, USA - JAN 9, 2015
22oz bottle picked up at Yokes
Pours clear golden with a medium sized frothy white head, lots of sticky lacing. Aroma is sweet, caramel, dusty and herbal. Taste is malty, caramel, earthy, grains and resin
It was just OK, wouldn’t buy another one though
