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.

swoopjones (6180) - Buffalo, New York, USA - AUG 22, 2012
bottle from Bruisin Ales. Copper orange pour. milder aroma of orange marmalade, light caramel malts & peanut shells. Decent flavor of orange zest, mild bitterness, orange marmalade with a sweet fruity finish. medium mouthfeel with good lacing. Better than expected

DocLock (8054) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 7, 2012
Bottle. Pours chill hazy orangy copper with 1-finger off-white head. Nose is resiny hops, caramel malt, with some spruce and tropical fruit. Tastes resiny, piney, hoppy, with mid-palate malt, fruit, tamgerine, and peppery notes. Medium palate heft and complexity level. This one is enjoyable.

maekchu (2283) - Hirakata, JAPAN - AUG 6, 2012
Bottle. Moderate pine hop aroma, a bit funky or something. Gold with 2-cm. rocky head. Fairly balanced initial, mid palate moves toward the malt, and final fades away quickly. Medium body. Overall maybe a bit too sweet, but okay.

rbrazell (1702) - Florida, USA - AUG 4, 2012
Bottle from Sweet Grass Dairy. Very clear copper with almost no head. Nose is only sweet caramel malts, no hint of hops whatsoever. Bland, boring, sweet caramel malt with maybe a slight touch of pine in the end. This is not a IPA.

jrob21 (2666) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUL 11, 2012
Bottle. Total Wine. Pours a dull clear amber. Malty caramel body with a faint hop profile. The hops that are there give it an orange touch in the aroma and a grassy herbal finish. Slightly bitter on the back end of the sip.

aracauna (3138) - Georgia, USA - JUL 10, 2012
Perfectly clear amber. Head laces nicely. Very fruity IPA. Most of that come from the hops, but this is also a very malty version of the still. Strong, but not overwhelming bitterness and hop heat in the finish.

HopTsing (441) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - JUL 4, 2012
From the bottle poured a golden brew with a whitel head. Aromas and flavors of malt and a stron hop bite. Medium bodied but just doesn’t bring it off.

tia (1010) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - JUL 4, 2012
Bottle. Honey color with dissipating head. Smells biscuity and a little floral. Taste is kind of floral too. A bit peppery on the pre-finish with the finish going sweet.

Suttree (5256) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 2, 2012
Too heavy, too sweet. I mean, not terrible, i guess, but not what I look for in an IPA. Lots of caramel and toffee, some earthy hops in the finish. Eh...

slang (654) - Columbia, South Carolina, USA - MAY 1, 2012
Bottled. Light straw. Pale ok. India no. 7% whatever. Mild citrus maybe. Fun name/label.
