COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Inukshuks were originally created as directional markers and used as landmarks for travelers on the Arctic Tundra. These stone sculptures can now be found all over North America and today they have become a symbol for hope, friendship and hospitality. We can’t think of a better icon for our North American IPA. O’Dempsey’s Inukshuk IPA combines a bitter hop bite and citrus nose with just enough of a malt backbone to achieve a balancing act for your senses. Enjoy.

Bottle. Brown in color. Very hoppy with hints of citrus and flora. A very good beer.

Pours very cloudy yellow-orange with lots of sediment. Thick white lacing and head. Medium-strong aromas of citrus and grass. Medium-bitter and somewhat creamy palate, with leaves, herbs and citrus. Very "Spring-like". It’s nice in that the creamy palate balances the bitter hops. Too many IPA’s are becoming "hop monsters" which isn’t a bad thing, it’s just not the only style. This style is a good one.

12oz bottle poured into a shaker. From TheBeerSommelier in a trade. Thanks Matt! Pours a very cloudy dark orange with about 3 fingers of thick white head. Aroma of citrus and grassy hops. Taste is light-medium bitter. Citrus, grass and some caramel malt. Medium-full bodied with a thick yet slick texture. Lively carbonation and a long bitter finish. Overall, very good. I would gladly drink this one again.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass tulip. This is a copper colored beer with a medium sized white head. The taste is pretty good with a nice caramel flavor; The aroma is big on malt and caramel with maybe some citrus in the background. The Palate is medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall- A pretty solid IPA, I would drink this again.

16 ounce pint - $5.25 at The Fred in Sandy Springs, Georgia. Appearance: Arrived at the table a particularly cloudy, dark ruddy-colored body with a fizzled, off-white head. Smell: Pale malted barley with hints of caramelized sugar and lightly toasted bread. Citrusy, faintly floral hops lead by a scent of oranges (while the flavor generally embodies a basic lemon flavor, though that’s just one drunkard’s opinion). Taste: Bready, caramel-coated maltiness with a soothing sweetness to it. On the taste, the hops impart a lemony character, with lesser, lighter hints of oranges and grapefruit. Very minute underlying earthiness. Medium-plus bitterness. Tastes of whole-grain bread and cooked lemon on the back half. Bittersweet, creamyish finish. Mouthfeel: A hair above medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. There’s definitely a slight heft to the mouthfeel. Drinkability: A good India Pale Ale swelled up with maltiness and residual sugars, though, admittedly, that’s not generally desirable to your average hophead. As for me, I appreciated the near-chewiness of the brew and felt it was well suited for the approaching Autumn.

Thomas Creek did a fine job with O’Dempseys Inukshuk. Pours a dark yellow, clear. Nice white head that hangs on. Good Carbonation nice sweet hoppy aroma. Nice hop flavor that is upfront but not too bold. Mouth feel is very nice. Bittering in aftertaste is great. As the picture on the label aludes to, it is definitely a well balanced beer!
