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.

Strykzone (5043) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - MAY 13, 2010
A world class golden tan head sits atop a mostly clear copper colored brew. The nose is pine, caramel, and a bit of cereal. It is not a robust aroma but is subtle and gentle. The flavor is two tiered with a quick bitter grapefruit bite immediately followed by pine and caramel. Just a hint of spice as the beer warms. Grapefruit settles in as the aftertaste and pretty much overwhelms my palate. Feel is thin.

Bottled. Pours cloudy/murky amber/brown with a medium offwhite head. Smells of straw, grass with a hoppy piney citrus overtone. Flavors are of pine, spruce and citrus rind. Palate is medium with a lively astringent finish of pine and hoppy bitterness. There are much better IPAs out there, but there are many that are worse.

thegreenrooster (3269) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - APR 7, 2010
Pour is a cloudy orange with a large white head. Aroma is a nice citrus hop. Flavor is ok with again a nice hop rounded out with a earthy malt backbone. A decent and cheap beer. Also this is the best beer by this brewer by far.

heemer77 (5106) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - MAR 20, 2010
Bomber. Dark amber to light copper colored in the glass with a light khaki long lasting head. An musty leather tobacco pouch smell along with a little bit of orange peels. A strong orange peel resin flavor up front is backed by some notes of leather. The finish is ashtray with a little bit of wood. It starts nice, but finishes weak. Overall an ok beer.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - MAR 9, 2010
22oz bottle. Pours a crystal clear, copper colored body with a finger-width, frothy, off-white head that dissipates quickly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is musty and earthy, grainy malts with a medium caramel sweetness. Floral citrus and grass with some toasted biscuit. Flavor is similar. Lots of musty earth and grainy, sweet caramels. Some lemon-grass and florals become a bit more distinct along with a minerally, toasted biscuit. Finishes with a good amount of earthy bitterness and a slight resin that leaves a lengthy aftertaste. Medium body, smooth, and a light carbonation. Overall, a decent IPA. Lots of hops and fairly well balanced. A bit minerally at times and there are some things that could use work, but this was enjoyable enough.

topherh (1912) - Kearney, Missouri, USA - MAR 7, 2010
Pours brownish amber with a big white head. Nose is grainy malt, grass, and some floral hops. Flavor is light bready malt before the lemony citrus hops show up. Very lively in the mouth with a big long bitter finish.

theisti (3278) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - MAR 7, 2010
22 oz bottle purchased at Royal in Kansas City, Missouri - poured into my Free State Willebecher. Pour is slight hazed orange yellow with a big three inch off white head. Head is lasting, falls with nice full lacing. Aroma is faint mineral earthiness, a very faint touch of floral citrus hop behind that. Really faint nose. Taste is lemon and orange citrus up front, dusty earth mineral in the middle, and closing out with a general metallic dirtiness. As it opens, taste is more mineral and clean, improves quite a bit. There is a decent amount of biscuit malt balancing everything together. Aftertaste is dirt. Palate is medium bodied, lower than normal carbonation, some evident alcohol heat and the dirt aftertaste.
