COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An exercise in balance and humility, the English IPA has always demonstrated a more reserved demeanor than its American counterpart. Displaying more mellow earthy, fruity tones rather than pungent citrus or pine, this latest Scratch IPA utilizes a variety of English-style hops and give the aroma and flavor more of an understated bitterness, resulting in a balanced finish. Fruity, earthy and nutty. Scratch #75 may possibly be what the beer squirrels dream about.

Took me awhile to write this one up but here it goes...Served on-tap at the brewery. A - Pours pale orange with a nice one finger tall white head leaving sticky streaks of lace down parts of the glass. S - Smells of....very little? Some earthy hops, chewy caramel and some light booze creeps in as it sits in the glass. Not sure what is going on here, there is definitely a little something "off" with this one. T - As with the nose, the taste is fairly dull. Starts off with some light earthy hop bite quickly giving way to hints of biscuity malt, toffee and caramel. Finish is a little dry, not lingering on the palate for very long after consumption. M - Medium body with moderate carbonation. Sweet, lightly hoppy feel. O - I tried to like this one but I just can’t. The flavors are decent but that one "off" flavor/aroma really messes with me when I try and drink this one. I must say I expected a little more from this one.

Served on draft at the brewery. Yay! I’m the first rating on this. Pours a clear copper color with a large creamy off-white head. Good head retention. Aroma of herbal hops and butterscotch. The taste is herbal hops, a salty note, caramel and butterscotch. Seems like there’s some diacetyl here. Medium bodied, high carbonation.
