COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
India Pale Ale: Old school version of an IPA. Still balanced; not a ‘one trick pony’ pale. Named after the country song “It’s hard to kiss the lips at night that chew your ass out all day long”.

Bottle from Brian, golden color, kind of a skunky spicy pine aroma. Taste is similar, almost some old resinous hops, not good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: DEC 28, 2013 Bottle. Murky gold pour. Skunky ass citrus nose. Bitter finish. Not great. Not close.

backdaft (202) - Menasha Red Light District, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 28, 2013
Bottle. Pours a deep golden haze with a fair white head. Aroma is off-putting; sour rotten peaches comes to mind. Taste is light grainy malts & resin-like bitterness. Light body and soft carbonation. This beer simply does not taste very good to me.

Ericular (572) - Minnesota, USA - MAR 11, 2013
Clear golden orange, deep fruity hop aroma. Taste is sweet fruity hops up front, then into a really long lasting bitterness. Little too long. Not a good pizza beer, which might have been part of the problem.

Lubiere (9788) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 27, 2013
A golden IPA with a thin off white head. In aroma, clover honey and floral hops, faint, but nice. In mouth, a light bodied yet nice IPA with grassy floral hops, decent. On tap at Istmus Beer and Cheese Fest, Jan 19 2012.

Lemke10 (757) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 24, 2013
This is a good place to start if you are looking to try an IPA for your first time. It pours a cloudy golden amber with a heavy scent of hops. There is a good bitterness to it but not as overwhelming as other hoppy beers. Perhaps a little on the weaker side for folks that love the bitter taste of IPA’s but still a decent brew.

Orange with thin head. Good tropical nose. Flavor is a pretty plain and typical but with a sort of Pepto Bismol twist. Nice to smell, less to taste.

bytemesis (3020) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - OCT 31, 2012
Bottle. Pours hazy yellow orange with particulate floaties. Large creamy white head that dissipates slowly leaving clumpy lacing. Aroma is grain corn syrup, and resin. Flavor is about the same, medium sweet, lightly bitter. Medium light body. Taste was more like a slight hoppy lager. I can only assume that this sat on the shelves a while, but as-is it was not good.

JK (4376) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - OCT 21, 2012
Gold color with a thick white head that laces the glass. Light hops aroma. Flavor has some sweet malt but also lots of sweet citrus and bread dough. Full flavored, but an astringent aftertaste.
