Hoppy with a sticky mouthfeel. A nice balance of malt and hops. A little to rich to drink too many, but a nice IPA.

Draft at flying saucer Nashville. From notes. Fruity and somewhat boozy. A little citrus and some caramel.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance: pours with a very large beige head, the beer is a very clear golden color with a strong hue of amber, very nice head retention
Aroma: strong grain, smells like I’m mashing in, caramel,
Taste: hints of grain at first then an assertive bitterness backed by a strong caramel malty backbone, has some warmth with it from the alcohol,
Palate: heavy mouthfeel, bitter aftertaste, lively carbonation
Overall: this beer smells amazing, the taste is great too, strong malts to overpower the bitterness, I like it

Can. Orange juice, malt , and orange peel/pine aroma. Slightly hazy golden yellow with nice off-white head. Sweet candied sugar/orange toffee malt and moderately bitter grapefruit peel/quinine flavor. Good body. A bit rough. Here’s to Sam and Ham plus Albert II - the first primate in space.

Another BIF project from Straight to Ale. Not sure how this is considered an IPA. This is a over malted amber, and if classified that way would get much higher scores. Great beer, just not a very good IPA.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear amber with a thick beige head.
Woody caramel, orange and pine aroma.
Taste is earthy....caramel malt, breadheel, fruit, a little peppery.
Tasty, though not very hoppy.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
NIce fruity aroma mingled with fresh hops. Deep golden to orange color, with a thick tanish white head. Sweet malt up front. Ultra citrus and fruit tone in the malt/hops up front. Bitterness faintly steps in on the finish and intensifies towards the end. Slightly slick mouth feel. A little boozy on the finish also.

Sampled at ESBLS. A complex beer, if not a great one. Very fruity with alcohol evident. Rich malts. Not a favorite.

Not exactly my style of brew when searching out an ipa but still good. Good balanced taste. Great looking and good tasting.
