UPDATED: JAN 13, 2011 Tap at CAH. Pours a lightly hazy golden amber with a medium bubbly white head. Aroma of floral hops, honey and light caramel malt. Flavor of honey, some citrusy and floral hop notes and light bread character. Bitterness on lower end for an IPA. Could use the help of a heavy dose of some dry hopping. Not gonna compete with todays IPA’s.

Aroma is light, but has a bit of hops and honey. Sweet start building to a bitter finish. Caramel like malt, a touch of darker honey, then a floral hops end. Interesting, but not a standout.

Pours dark amber and has aroma of florals, caramel and honey. Taste is sweet with a honey aftertaste. For some reason this beer left a terrible aftertaste, almost funky but in a bad way.

Bottle into an ale glass. Pour is a dark amber with a lace head. Aroma is on the weak side. Taste is a very bitter pull, not a smoothly built beer. Finish is harsh, not what I would have looked for in an ipa. But better then most mass made swill.

Pours a hazy brown with large yeast particles in suspension. Aroma of sweet malt. Taste is sweet up front with a medium mouthfeel, and noticeable earthy hop taste tailing into maltiness and ending with a slightly rough astringency and little bitterness. Very odd IPA as hops are a small part of the show.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
on tap at Fatty’s - This is a confusing beer, and my review is based on it’s style (IPA). Dark amber pour with a small to medium white head. Aroma is mild - some malty sweetness. Flavor is mellow and smooth, slightly sweet and finishes with a lingering, albeit mild, hop bitterness. I think it would have scored a lot higher if it had been marketed as an Amber Ale though. When I see IPA, I know what I want - and this is not it. However, that’s not to say it’s a mediocre beer. Under certain circumstances I could definitely drink one of these. I can’t help but wonder if it hurts their sales calling it an IPA instead of an Amber. I can see that someone who decidedly doesn’t like IPAs or bitter beers might avoid this outright, but if it was labeled as an Amber they might try it.

Bottled. Pours hazy amber with thin head. Overall drinkable beer, the honey is subdued, but so is the IPA taste.
