COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Originally developed for British sailors stationed in India, IPAs were aggressively hopped to help prevent spoilage on long ocean voyages. Now that spoilage isn’t as big a problem, we’ve eased up on the hoppiness just a hair to let the caramel malts shine through. It’s a big beer with big flavor that really lets you appreciate hops in all their glory.

PorterPounder (8362) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 20, 2012
Wilmington Island, Ga - Kroger Supermarket - 12 oz bottle. Light copper pour, thin white head. Aroma is pretty much neutral, faint metallic industrial aromas. Flavor is standard budget IPA, some nuttiness, a bit of hard candy sweetness. some breadiness, a faint trace of citrus bitterness. Mouthfeel is thick enough, Not writing home about this one.

FROTHINGSLOSH (8291) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 15, 2012
Sampled on draft at the Rivertowne Pub this beer poured a dark amber color with a medium sized foamy beige head that left decent lacing. The aroma was faintly bitter with light pine and grapefruit. The flavor was tangy and bitter with notes of lemon, pine-sol, Windex, perfume, musk and an off presence. Long bitter finish of Pine Sol, Windex and perfume. Medium body. Not good.

Draft at safeco field. Fitting that so many ballpark memories of my dad come back and the beer in my hand is a hank’s--even if it isn’t an hwpr. I love you, pop, and i miss you. Let’s go, Ms. Pours a hazy medium gold with a dense white head. Buttery caramel nose. Slick medium body with soft carb. Ultra buttery spastic fantastic bowl of popcorn mid palate. Is this ballyard lines or from the keg this way? Disinclined to do much investigation. Washed down that ballyard dog pretty good though. God, on days like this i love baseball so much it hurts.

Ughsmash (7502) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 30, 2012
Bottled. Poured clear, bright golden with a short white head. The aroma picked up sweet honey and caramel malts with just a little resiny pine and citrus hops coming through.. quite malty and not that interesting. The flavor found sweet caramel and biscuity malts at the core, with fruity hops joining spicy pine and earthy notes around.. more peppery on the finish. Light-medium bodied and spicy on the palate with some prickly carbonation.. a tad metallic on the middle and back.. overall an OK brew.

wlajwl (7211) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - OCT 4, 2012
Aroma is grassy hops and what can’t be described as anything other than water. The flavor is mild citrus/grapefruit, fruit and a mildly bitter finish.

mansquito (7134) - Nueva York, New York, USA - DEC 9, 2012
Whole Foods, Bowery 12oz ($2): Pours clear light amber with a medium thick head. Aroma is light malts and barely much in the way of hops. Taste is pretty light and weak. There is some bitterness.Aftertaste is somewhat astringent and some nondescript hops. Tastes like a mediocre ESB.

AmEricanbrew (7080) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - DEC 17, 2012
Brilliant dark gold cold with ivory head . Faint pine, floral, vegetal hop aromas. Mildly hoppy, lightly bitter pine, floral flavors on a grainy pale malt base brew--better than no ipa
