COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a tasty tribute to a beloved and iconic beer style - the India Pale Ale. The style goes 200 years back - has been through every spectrum of the flavor palette and had it’s ups and downs on the IBU scale. This time around we re-created a contemporary style IPA - basically the taste of the perfect IPA right now. Understated hop flavors, fruity and crisp. The future is now.

3fourths (9349) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 2, 2016
From can it’s hazed gold with a lasting white head. Aroma impression is catty garlic-butter, dried grass, hay, lemon juice. Medium bodied, sharp, moderately sweet, excessively bitter and raw, even a bit gritty and sour from the suspended yeast. "Understated" hop flavors for the LOL.

Tmoney99 (14609) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 2, 2016
Can. Poured clear yellow color with an average to large frothy white head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate citrus hop aroma. Medium body with a slick texture with soft carbonation. Moderate bittersweet flavor with a moderate bittersweet finish of medium duration. Very good brew.

Very fresh can from Premier Gourmet. Bright hoppy taste, but metallic leak through is significant.

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 26, 2016
12oz can, from Dutch’s. Batch #001. Hazy golden color, with some particles in the body. Bigger 2-finger white head. Fades to a good retaining amont, and leaves decent frothy lace. Big citrusy and floral hop here up front. Zest, resin and pine. Touch of tropical. Moderate to bigger bitter, milder sweet, decent balance. Mild dry, but not as dry as I remember the Retro IPA as being. This one’s easier drinking. Medium to bigger body. Kind of soft, smooth lighter carbonation, with a sort of full feel. An enjoyable IPA overall, with the nice hop aroma. But in the end there’s some chalky, plastic in the finish that drags it a bit.

2.2
Turboninja (785) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 24, 2016
[email protected], from Wine Spot, Cleveland, USA. Light slightly rubbery aroma with not so sweet berries and a hint of malts. Light golden color with minimal white head and hazy liquid. Medium, hoppy and bit bitter, artificial taste of somewhat stale fruits and a hint of malts. Medium taste spectrum and long hoppy aftertaste with artificial fruits. Medium/light body with medium carbonation. Overall, yes this is modern IPA with artificial and plastic, rubbery notes.

3.9
mambossa (337) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - FEB 24, 2016
Bottle. Pours a hazed, unfiltered sun gold with mild sediment. Fairly compact head clinging lovingly. Nice nose of pineapple, blood orange, and nectarine, contrasted by cannabis, flowery pine, all atop a cereal malt. Flavor starts off bright and juicy with deep tangerine, passionfruit and overripe grapefruit ascending to a floral, pithy, piney finish. All of which sailing along clean, unabrasive light cereal malt. This is a REALLY solid ipa for what it’s worth. It’s got a well rounded hop profile and a crescendo of a flavor experience. Can’t tell which I like better between the retro and modern. This one gets an extra .1 for the likelihood of me picking up a 4pack of this.

jkwood04 (5448) - Connecticut, USA - FEB 21, 2016
12oz can. Looks golden. Aroma of floral and citrusy and lightly piney hops, some pale malts, and dough. Flavor the same with a decent hoppiness. Average texture. Not the best IPA on earth, but pretty good.

3.7
ByTheirLimpin (321) - New York, USA - FEB 20, 2016
From a can to a tulip. Nose is slight fruit, citrus and and a little pine. Cloudy warm straw in the glass. Head stands up and fades cleanly. Palate is crisp. Little tart honey maybe green apple. Hop is dry all the way through. Finish is even and tempered. Good beer.

3.7
ajnepple (6701) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 17, 2016
12 oz single can from the Craft Beer Cellar - Fort Collins. Orange and light hazy appearance with a white head and thick lacing. Aroma of tropical fruit, resinous hops and light citrus zest. Similar flavor, piney, resinous and lightly fruity with heavy hop bitterness and a touch of malt sweetness. Medium body with a lingering bitter, light dry finish. Good.
