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.

Not the best IPA I’ve had, and I’m tired of every other word on the bottle being ’Organic’, as if that was the only good selling point. Otherwise, it had a good hoppy flavor, but nothing special, and no real subtle fruity flavors that I look for in a distinct IPA.

"another aerage IPA from Fish. Not bad at all, but very average. The "new hop" Pacific Gem is fairly indistinguishable, and the malt is too much of the flavor. An underhopped IPA. That said, it was enjoable enough, but not one I’d get again."

UPDATED: SEP 26, 2014 This is a particularly malty IPA, I think to its detriment. Rather smooth, mellow; a little citrus.

NW IPAs, getting difficult to keep track. Nice amber body, soft airy head. Hoppy aroma, citrus/pine taste, but very smooth.

Bulk_Carrier (2229) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - AUG 22, 2014
Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a hazy yellow to orange color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute. There was some light lacing involving itself around the glass. The smell had a weird grainy / grassy sort of bitter citrus thing going on. The taste was mainly the same. On the palate, this one sat fairly light and did have a decent sessionability about it. The carbonation seemed alright. Overall, this was a mostly decent AIPA that I probably wouldn’t seek out again.

Prufrockstar (1092) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 22, 2014
Draft at Olympia brewpub. Pours clear amber with nice lacing. Caramel, pine; muddled. Toasted thick grain cereal. Some citrus and green apple. Taste: caramel sweetness with bitter finish. Classic IPA. Medium body, average carbonation.

coyforce (616) - Virginia, USA - AUG 10, 2014
Overall not a terrible IPA. the flavor is a bit weak and so is the aroma, but the pour is a nice color with a nice head.

penstemon (127) - - JUL 12, 2014
Pours pale orange-gold with a white head. Aroma is pretty solid malt backbone. Grain, biscuit, and caramel. Floral, overripe grapefruit and oranges, a little earthy. Taste is grapefruit, orange, bready malt, earthy, mineral, and medium bitterness. Seltzery carbonation, light-med body, resinous with a dry finish. Overall a pleasant IPA.

50belair (2456) - Florida, USA - JUN 11, 2014
On tap at the brewpub. Clear yellow pour with an off white head. Citrusy hop aromas. Mild citrus and fruity hop notes. Good balance with a sturdy malt backbone. Average body and mouthfeel.

Headbanger (3360) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - APR 13, 2014
22oz bottle 4/13/14 (Crown Liquors #15-Fishers)-39° in Shaker-Pours a murky orangish amber with a small white head. Aroma of citrus and malt. Taste of hops, malt, and bitterness. This medium bodied brew is not too shabby.

BEERSOLDIER (42) - Illinois, USA - FEB 28, 2014
Hazy orange color, has a decent size head that holds strong but little lacing. smells of mild hops, floral, citrus and floral. flavor is very mild/ orange peel, hops, herbs and slightly bitter. somewhat of a dry finish. I am not a fan would not recommend and I probably won’t drink this beer again.
