3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
In short: A low-profile american pale ale labelled as an IPA.
How: Bottle 12oz, consumed relatively fresh a few weeks after purchase.
The look: Clear pale golden body topped by a small off-white head leaving some lacings on the glass.
In long: Nose of medium intensity is citrusy hops with light piney notes. The fruity aroma has a nice freshness quality but lacks oomph. Typical clean mouthfeel with medium body and medium carbonation. Taste offers a frail semi-sweet malt backbone with mild caramel and some pastry. A moderate amount of fruity hops with a character sitting in between fresh citrus fruits and dried fruits. Light off-putting vegetable notes. Bitterness of medium intensity with a little citric sharpness. Piney notes in the comeback. Not a hop-bomb and certainly not a malt bomb either, this is a low-profile well balanced beer that most breweries would label as an APA. Could have been a decent generic american pale ale but the light vegetable notes bring it down to a below average take on the style. If actual stormchasers were as bold as this Stormchaser Summer IPA, then stormchasers would be people who sometimes go outside on a cloudy day without an umbrella.
