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.

MrBunn (2868) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 25, 2016
Can. Hazy straw pour with a big sudsy head and lemony aromas. Flavor is light and airy with a lemony edge and some cat pee in the finish. Decent for a light palate IPA.

3.4
SpringsLicker (3688) - Tennessee, USA - MAR 23, 2016
Hazy gold with a small white head. Light lemony citrus hop aroma. Lightly bitter. Decent IPA with no flaws but very a very ordinary beer with a big price tag.

3.5
crossovert (14233) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 23, 2016
355ml bottle. This one is noticeably better than the retro ipa. Definitely more dry hops were used. The hops here are fruity and a touch tropical, flavor is tropical with not a huge bitterness. Decent. Would have liked to try them blind side-by side but didn’t have the time.

bubblehouse (1634) - louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAR 21, 2016
Descent. Not sure if anything makes it stand out from all the other ipas out there but it was good and worth trying.

reebtogi (6488) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 21, 2016
355ml can pours a slightly hazy golden orange color with a finger and a half of white head that leaves some spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma is citrus and tropical fruits with some grainy notes. Taste is a citrus hop bitterness with a tropical fruity and malty sweetness. Light to medium bodied with good carbonation that pleases the palate. Overall, a pleasant, easy drinking IPA that would be good for a beginner of the style and satisfy most IPA lovers as well.

3.5
Travlr (26943) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - MAR 20, 2016
Draft. Hazy golden color, medium white head. Aroma of earthy citrus. Taste is lemon, grapefruit, light sourness. Decent.

3.2
mansquito (7272) - Nueva York, New York, USA - MAR 19, 2016
The Sampler, Brooklyn can: pours light orange with a white head. Aroma is mostly grapefruit. Taste is juicy and not too bitter. Kind of like what is the trend these days, just less tropical than many of the IPAs that are coming out these days. Better than the retro I guess.

3.3
hershiser2 (3880) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - MAR 19, 2016
Can from wine warehouse. Pours golden with a large off white head. Floral hops and citrus in the nose. Taste is floral hops, heavy citrus (perhaps orange peel), pine. Much better than the retro version. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

3.8
mixmasterob (1060) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAR 16, 2016
Can, batch 001. Hazy golden pour with a frothy white head. Certainly looks like an IPA. Bits of sediment in the glass. Aroma was citrusy with notes of melon and soft fruits some earthy malt, straightforward and nice. Flavors were dry and crisp, fruit forward up front, citrus, long lingering bitter, dry finish. This one won’t blow your hair back but it’s a solid, easy going IPA.

3.3
OldGrowth (3665) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - MAR 13, 2016
can, from Bottle Revolution RDU. batch #001 ok aroma, citrusy. grassy. tad hazed orange gold color, ok head and lace. bitter sweet flavor. medium body, creamy oily mouthfeel, bitter dry finish. it’s good, solid IPA. flavor best part, IMO. good mouthfeel, aroma a little weaker than flavor in the scheme of the things. worth a try, would drink everyday also
