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.

blipp (5679) - Newark, New Jersey, 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.

swoopjones (5329) - 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

heemer77 (5080) - 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.
