3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAR 31, 2014 Pours a cloudy copper, minimal head. Aroma is ripe citrus. Smooth and soft on the palate. Definite hop finish. Chewy and bready, a lot of body. Has some odd notes for an IPA, but overall, I like it the variations and the body. (updated rating when I could see it in context of my other IPA ratings - strictly speaking, as an IPA it should rate lower, because it’s off-type; but, it gets this rating because it’s pretty drinkable).
Formerly known as Jamaica Sunset IPA, Mad River IPA is a rich light copper India Pale Ale that features the finest spicy floral dry hopped character with a clean crisp finish. Pizza, foods with red sauces and garlic, and sushi.

Bottle. Overripe citrus nose, sourish and full. Medium orange/ambr color. Light tropical fruit initial flavor, some grapefruit, bready. Hops cut in during mid palate. Decently bitter finish. Pleasant stuff, with the malt winning over the hops. crazymorton (25) - AUSTRALIA - OCT 25, 2015
a very complex aroma. peppery flavours for me. subtle bit of honey sweetness then the bitterness on the back end is just right. a very enjoyable brew jinroh (1604) - ESTONIA - AUG 7, 2015
Pours nice darker shade of orange, white head. Aroma is mainly fresh, a bit of fruitiness that is subdued by hop grassines. Taste is quite straightforward IPA, not too many layers, just bitterness, resins, clean and dry. More fruitiness than average I guess. Simple and works.

BOTTLE. Pours a slightly hazy gold with fluffy white head, solid lacing. Nose is a sweet biscuit & caramel malt. Biscuit, caramel malts are upfront leading to a slight hoppy back end with a good resin lingering after the mouthful. Sourced Cape Cellars BeAndrews (30) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - APR 29, 2015
Pours a cloudy orange-amber with a creamy white head. Aroma of resiny hop (pine & citrus), fruity with some caramel malt. Tastes of citrus hops backed by sweet malt, pepper and a decent bitter finish. Medium body. nuplastikk (6289) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 27, 2015
12oz bottle. One the original Red IPAs for sure. Unfiltered orange-red body. Thin, foamy, off-white head. Kind of old school thick, ringwood feeling tastes. Thick caramel, amber malts The hops attempt to balance it out, with some classic NW piny, resinous feels. Not really that good for 2015. redwood_mike (6) - - JAN 29, 2015 does not count
Deffo a bit diffo from the 'regular' IPA's. Not AS hoppy on the nose and nicely balanced given the 7% ABV. I think I'm going to decide to like this one. Yeah Mon...
