COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Inukshuks were originally created as directional markers and used as landmarks for travelers on the Arctic Tundra. These stone sculptures can now be found all over North America and today they have become a symbol for hope, friendship and hospitality. We can’t think of a better icon for our North American IPA. O’Dempsey’s Inukshuk IPA combines a bitter hop bite and citrus nose with just enough of a malt backbone to achieve a balancing act for your senses. Enjoy.

firemarshal (189) - North Carolina, USA - JAN 16, 2014
Bottle into shaker. Medium-dark amber. Clear, but not crystal. Nose of caramel, bread malts. Over-the-top floral hops. Doughy, cheesy yeast. Intense malty flavor balanced with floral, honey-like hops flavor. Not bitter at all. Overall very sweet for an IPA, but hey, if they all tasted the same we wouldn’t try them.

jredmond (5839) - Manhattan, New York, USA - DEC 30, 2013
Bottle shared with Linh. Pours a clear, golden honey body with no head - thin soapy white lacing but pretty minimal. Aroma is pretty faint overall - some oranges and sweet malt. Mouthfeel is thin with notes of bitter orange, malts, light toast, spice and grain.

ellolovey (476) - Georgia, USA - DEC 27, 2013
12 oz bottle. Clear amber pour with thin foamy white head. Aroma of citrus, pine, and basement. Tastes of dirt, citrus, pine, and some fruitiness. Sharp bitterness on the finish.

deaconmike (414) - Roswell, Georgia, USA - DEC 17, 2013
Cask at Taco Mac. Very malty ipa. Thought this was more characteristic of an English IPA. Just ok IMHO.

Imaena (1943) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - NOV 2, 2013
Bottle. This is a thin and tinny IPA without the requisite bitterness and hoppiness one looks for.

pnesbit (96) - Marietta, South Carolina, USA - NOV 2, 2013
Bottle pour of orange gold brown with a med cream lacy head. Aroma of big honey and caramel malt only a hit of herbal like hops. Taste of same big sweet roasted malt with a pine like bitter that sneaks up at the end. Med body with a good carbonation that plays on the tongue with a med lingering bitter. Easy sipping beer that is well balanced but not really an IPA, the hops are more herbal than citrusy and the malt is very predominate. Would drink again but maybe it should be renamed as it's not what I expected being listed as an IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jgb9348 (4943) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - OCT 26, 2013
Clear light amber coloured body with a thin off-white head. Aroma of pale malt, apricots, caramel and some english and german hops - not much alpha acids in this one. Light-bodied; Mild malty flavour with a little hop flavour showing a touch of perfume and flowers. Aftertaste is mild with a bit of caramel, toffee and a little nutty taste - not so great. Overall, a pretty poor beer with not much hop flavour and no complexity - pretty bland and not really worth trying, especially as an IPA. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Merchant’s in Dearborn, Michigan on 02-August-2013 for US$2.49 sampled at home in Washington a few hours before running the Marine Corps Marathon on 26-October-2013.

full enough body slick with some sweetenss and syrup grapefruit flavor. some well grown and matured malt and then broomstraw wafting together in good blend. finish sweet and fruity. good mouthfeel. hazy brew with banded head. well built beer and palate helps the appearance.
