Clear gold/bronze. Dense white head. Floral and grassy hops and lightly sweet malt. Same flavors with lots of earthy bitterness, even a bit astringent. Medium body, balanced carbonation. Meh.

This may become the only beer I drink from now on. I’m having a hard time understand some of these lower ratings. Please do yourself a favor a try this meticulously crafted masterpiece of an IPA: you will not be disappointed!

Smells better than it tastes, and it doesn’t smell all that good to me.

Fairly boring IPA. Light bodied and thin with soft hoppy and citrus aromas. Not very good considering all the awsome IPA’s that are out there.

Bottle. Pours dark gold with a full head. Mild hop aroma. Medium palate. Flavor starts out hoppy with a slightly bitter finish. A good IPA for its price.

Bottle with Chip Portland 08.’ This 12 pack was dropped down a flight of stairs en-route to my flat. Chip picked it during an ice slush storm while visiting. This is a light bodied, low hop, low malt IPA. Its designed to be a flagship style beer for session consumption. Its pretty basic and understated. Not a sipper. You could rip this right out of the bottle.

12 oz. bottle from a sixpack from Jewel (New Lenox, IL). As far as IPAs go, this might not be a great example, but I thought this beer offered a lot in the way of a summer quencher that still had the hop presence that people here love. Pours a golden hue with hints of a darker color with a smallish white head that dissipates quickly. A largely floral nose that is a touch mild for an IPA. Initial is mostly empty of defining character up front, some hops maybe, that make way to a very pleasant back end with hoppy touches of citrus fruit and a bitterness presence on the roof of my mouth. No real malt presence comparable to other IPAs, but a refreshing finish that quenches. I’d say this beer is good and would definately buy again for its drinkability and it’s psuedo-IPA properties. Starter IPA, perhaps?

on tap at the celebrate Brooklyn concert-prospect park. Lightly hazy orange in color with a medium off white head. Aroma: faint floral hops with some clean caramel malt. Taste is subdued for an ipa- light pine and citrus with a light to moderate hop bitterness in the finish. Clean, but unassertive for an IPA.

Indra (2711) - Suburbia, Kansas, USA - JUL 10, 2008
12oz. bottle, purchased as a single. Aroma of grapefruit and pine, some grassy and herbal notes, along with some very faint malt sweetness. Slightly hazy light-medium golden color with a very slight head. Flavor is malty and honeyish with touches of citric grapefruit, lemongrass and unwelcome traces of Pine-Sol here and there, finishing dry with a light-moderate dose of bitterness. Palate is thin and effervescent, body is medium. Pretty much fit my expectations to a T.
