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”.

Not bad, not great. Kind of a cross between a British IPA and an American IPA. Poured with a cream colored foamy frothy head that dies down to a scummy thin cover and some lace. Color is a clear light to medium colored amber. Aroma is light hop with malt and a bit of caramel. Flavor is a mildly assertive, somewhat piney hop and some malt and caramel. Body is decent with good carbonation. Finish is like flavor with the pine standing out along with a little caramel.

Bottle from Steve’s in Madison. This is a decent beer, but I must admit that the aroma really put me off. It took me a few sips after smelling to really get the flavor of the beer. Once I did, it’s a nice enough IPA with a belgian hint of citrus and yeast to it. Very dry, hoppy finish.

Courtesy of Oddefellowe. Pours gold with a bit of haze and white head. The aroma is sweet with malts and earthiness and then it grows into a mild level of spicy hops. The taste is grainy and then moving toward earthy hops and growing spicy hops along with a touch of citrus. This has a nice mix of fresh hops that lean firmly into hop bitterness but with only slight amounts of hop flavor and it creates a brew that is askew from the standard for the style. Nice stuff. The elevated level of bitterness really works for me.

Poured from bottle, clear golden color with nice white head, has hoppy and citrus aroma with nice lacing through out the glass, has a thin finish to it but is still enjoyable.

Pours a clear golden apricot color with a large foamy head. Pretty busy carbonation in the body. The aroma has a lot of grainy malt with some soft citrus notes. The flavor is similar, with floral notes and long bitterness. Soft mouthfeel with foamy carbonation.

Bottle... Poured hazy, golden orange with a thick, foamy, white head. Nose was malty, with a flaint hop presence. Black pepper, grains, and slight hop bitterness. Slightly sweet, cookie-like dough sweetness. Light, dry, malted grain finish.

bottle-wow, this was bad! pours lite orange with a small fizzy white head. nose of apple skins-must be infected with a touch of dirty pool water. grainy flavors of grassy hops, pool water, cholorine, and husky malts. An IPA? definately not american, maybe brittish. a touch of diacytl comes out in the finish. This was really bad! a really bad example of the style and just a plain bad beer!!!!!
