COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
O’Malley’s IPA is another beer that started out as a Brew Labs 22oz. This IPA is built for wider appeal than some of its cousins. With 7.5% abv and 89 IBU it still has all that you expect from an IPA, but with a smoother finish than one might expect.

Bottle. Pours a crystal clear amber with a creamy off-white head that leaves sporadic clumps of lacing. Aroma is biscuity malt. Toasty body that gives way to a potent dry bitterness with pine notes.

It poured a copper color with little head. The aroma was of caramel and apples, with a little bit of a herbal hops presence. The flavor was caramel malt with a herbal hops finish. Not a great IPA.

Bought @ Cork and Barrel, in Lawrence,Kansas on my recent KC beer trip for $3.99/22oz .. . Pours a deep tan gold, very light foam .. . damn, take this review lightly- this beer came out over a year ago and this beer shows it- not off, but faded .. . light sap, crushed nuts, socks, and a faded dusty english hops .. . I can tell this beer was probably quite tasty when super fresh but age hasn’t done much in a positive manner .. . Kind of don’t know what else to say. - Say, "I will have dinner with you and thank you for this, and thank you."

Clear dark golden with a fizzy white head. Faint malty aroma. Lightly pine flavored with caramel dominating and finishing earthy.

22-Jan-10 (22-oz bottle: Purchased 09-Oct-10 for $3.99 at wineandcheeseplace.com) I’m not sure why I had high expectations for this beer. Perhaps it’s because the name Weston Brew Labs evokes visions of scientifically engineered beers for greater extraction, perfect balance, and stylistic exactness, but on the whole, this really is pretty mediocre stuff. The nose is grain and corn husks, with a vegetal hop aroma that smells like grass in the compost pile. Apparently, there are some corn plants in that compost pile as well. Things don’t improve much in the flavor either, as the infernal, unrelenting presence of grain husks is improved only slightly by a bit of sweet, caramely malt, but the hops are still vegetal and grassy. The weight is medium, carbonation is moderate, and the mouthfeel is dry and a bit astringent. Amber in color and slightly hazy, and the pale-tan head pours to half an inch before receding to a ring, leaving only a few spots of lace on the glass. Yeah, this isn’t very good. If fact, mediocre would be a nice goal for the next batch as this is below average for the style.

Pours a medium, partly cloudy amber with moderate off-white head. Heavier in malt both in aroma, taste, etc. than a normal IPA. Decent, just a bit heavy tasting and not a discernable presence of citrus and pine hops. I guess you’d say a "Malty IPA". Not a drain pour, just not all that good.

22oz bottle. Small off-white head that almost wholly dissipates, atop lightly hazed amber body. Aroma is moderately sweet, pine/grapefruit, light bread, orange. Taste is moderately sweet, pine, some lemon, grapefruit, light bread. Medium body, some acidity.

Bomber. Gold, hazy, with no head. Nose is minimal. Taste has virtually no hop profile-more like a slimmed down pale ale. Sort of flat body. Some malty background. A bit watery. Not much going on here.

So tried 3 O’mally’s tonight and none of them worth drinking. Saved this one till last and was hoping for great things but was let down. There was a light hoppy aroma, little to nothing on the tongue and the body was super light. In my opinion it completely missed the mark on an IPA.
