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. 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 (5480) - 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...

Bottled. Light straw. Pale ok. India no. 7% whatever. Mild citrus maybe. Fun name/label.

12oz bottle poured into a shaker. From TheBeerSommelier in a trade. Thanks Matt! Pours a very cloudy dark orange with about 3 fingers of thick white head. Aroma of citrus and grassy hops. Taste is light-medium bitter. Citrus, grass and some caramel malt. Medium-full bodied with a thick yet slick texture. Lively carbonation and a long bitter finish. Overall, very good. I would gladly drink this one again.

Drake (10406) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - MAR 23, 2012
12 ounce bottle from Bottle Revolution in Raleigh. Pours entirely head. Foamy and tan which eventually reveals a clear amber beer. Aroma of caramel malts with floral and citrus hops. The taste is bitter citrus hops, toasted malts and nutty notes. Medium bodied.

blipp (6869) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 15, 2012
Bottle. Pours amber orange with a huge huge off white head. Sweet malty aroma with earthy hops. The flavor has sweet toffee malty with weird earthy and floral hoppy notes. Either old or just not that good, no date on the bottle so who knows.

12 ounce thanks to James. Malty IPA with big caramel. Too much for me. Hops take a big back seat here.
