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”.

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.

Thanks to oddefellow for the share. Pours opaque orange-gold with a white head. Nose is malt, grapefruit, and slight pine. Flavor is similar with malt, grapefruit, and miscellaneous hops. Light bodied and ok IPA.

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!!!!!

Had on tap for dinner, nice fruity smell. Orangeish in color, minimal head left after pour. Taste of hops with a slight sweet finish. Would drink again.

On tap at Byrd’s in Fitchburg, WI - Even though this was on tap, this just felt off. Had this one in the bottle many times and it tasted fresher and brighter. It was a nice deep amber pour with a small off-white head. Everything seemed fine, but the smell was kind of a milky malt, balanced with some light citrus hops. It’s fairly sweet, but doesn’t taste fresh--kind of limp. The hops switch a bit on the taste--real piney with a touch of citrus, then transition into a grassy, bitter finish. It’s just not fresh tasting--may have to re-rate this one out of the bottle.
