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.

Bottle. Pours hazy amber with slight head. Aroma of floral hops. Taste of hops and not much else.

Pours a fairly clear golden to orange with a thinner cream colored head. A vigorous swirl produces a little less than a finger worth of head, and the lacing is spotty. Nose is quite subdued with notes of caramel and toast with herbal hop notes, some faint citrus hops and some honey. Pretty sweet flavor-wise, with a fair bitterness that comes around to balance. Lighter side of medium bodied, fairly active yet somewhat dull on the palate, with a lingering drying herbal honey tea finish. I’m pretty sure I have a fairly fresh example, and for me I don’t think they should call this an IPA. An ESB perhaps, or standard APA, but it definitely does not perform like an IPA aromatically or on the palate. Not a bad brew, but nothing makes it stand out.

BVery (7681) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - MAY 29, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2013 Bottle. Clear orange pour with a small head. Might be a bit aged - getting a touch of cardboard out of this. Caramel and citrus hops in here. Just okay.

gripweed57 (917) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - MAY 24, 2013
12 ounce bottle. Bright amber orange color. Medium-sized beige head. Fragrant toasted malt aroma has a touch of caramel and spicy undertones. Subtle sweet toasted malt flavor is nicely balanced with light grapefruit-like hops. Good flavor and balance. Rather tame, but good.

heemer77 (5159) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - MAY 23, 2013
Bottle. Deep gold blonde colored body with a slightly off white head. The nose has some rich toast, grapefruit and toast. There is a pleasant floral quality from the relatively restrained hops. This is fairly bitter in the mouth at first taste, but it becomes more fruity and doughy as more gets drank. There is some hint of wood and hay in the finish. A decent middle of the road IPA.

Foxbush (1466) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - APR 7, 2013
Draft at Burger Tavern 77 in Columbia, SC The IPA poured a clear light amber with a white head and lacing. There was a mild aroma of orange and light caramel malts. This was a mild IPA. very drinkable but not the expecteed bitterness of the hoppy ales. I like the 7% ABV for IPAs but needed more bitter hops. The ale had average carbonation. The finish had a medium mouthfeel of hops with good lacing.

Good English IPA. Not as malty as some English styles and not overly sweet. Worth another try. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
