"a pretty tasty by-the-book copper colored american ipa. nothing that stands out, but it does everything a good IPA is supposed to do. another nice lingering bitter finish."

Golden amber with a slight haze, bright white head and nice lace. Modest citrus hop aromas. Flavor is a little bitter, a little malty, but not a lot of either. Medium body, lively carbonation, sticky mouthfeel and a clean finish. A bit of a disappointment.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Draught in a flight at the Mill Creek Brewpub. Pours a cloudy light brown color. Nose has some slightly bitter grass elements to it, but a lot of bread as well. Taste is bitter and earthy, and just not at all pleasant.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Tap. Pours a slightly hazy copper body with a thin film of white head. The nose is showing some citrusy hops, but the sweet crystal malt body wind out in the end. Fairly bitter and hoppy, but again, the crystal malt sweetness dominates on the finish. Another awful crystal malt forward IPA. Light to medium bodied with a slight stickiness on the finish. Overall, just not my kind of IPA. Keep the crystal malt away from my hoppy beers!

Deep gold, clear, off white head. Aroma of piney-citrusy hops. Flavor features a caramel sweetness, very light soapy note, piney-resiny hops.

This is a solid example of an IPA. Although I could point to many greater ones, this McMenamins IPA has decent spruce/piney hops with a good fluffy head which many McMenamin’s beers lack.
