COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sticky Icky Icky is a radiantly clear, copper-colored American India Pale Ale. It is loaded with citrusy hop aromas of oranges, nectarines, and apricots. This light, yet full bodied ale is perfectly balanced by equal parts sweet malt and juicy hops. A medium bitterness along with a subtle earthiness lingers in the finish. This new American India Pale Ale is what Ryan Hale, the head brewer at the Bellaire pub, referred to as his quintessential IPA. Ryan combined all of his favorite hops resulting in what he described as “pure juicy goodness”. This beer is loaded with all of the big citrus and fruity flavors American hops can offer.

hotstuff (5279) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - DEC 5, 2017
Rated on 12-05-2017. Bottle. The appearance is a medium sized very foamy off-white head that is mostly lasting, transparent golden body, lively, fast rising carbonation, and spotty lacing. The aroma is citrus hops, pine hops, some tropical fruit, tangerine, sweet, floral, grassy, and malt. The flavor presents moderate bitterness, citrus hops, pine hops, tropical fruit, grapefruit, tangerine, malt, and sweet. The mouthfeel of this beer is moderate carbonation and smooth. This beer is medium bodied. This beer is very drinkable with a bittersweet finish. For the style, it is not overly hoppy or bitter tasting and it refreshing. It is worth trying and a beer that I would purchase again.

On tap at Lunar Brewing Co., and shaker served showing a hazed, golden hue, with a sudsy layer of soft white head foam, and spiraling cling to the lacing. The nose presented a fragrant, fruity expression to the citrus as grapefruit & tangerine, pit fruit as apricot, followed by some slightly dank hop scent. Medium bodied, with decent carbonation, the taste contributed a very lingering, citrusy, earthy, and rind-like bitterness, with a touch of malt creaminess that took a slight edge off the hops, while lightly soothing the palate. Well put together, and very drinkable IPA.

On tap at Brunzies. Nice floral hop aroma with a bit of diacetyl. Medium amber with light haze, thin lacing white head. Medium body with medium-high carbonation and carbonic burn. Starts medium sweet with caramel and light malt, happy bitterness. Bitter finish with a little diacetyl. Nutty sweet finish and bitter after.

Bottle. Damnit, Shorts... why does everything have to gush? Yup... this one foamed over onto my folks’ counter during our Thanksgiving visit. Nothing like that sort of smooth move to ingratiate you to the fam... I cursed and feared an infection, but it passed the sniff test... a bit of resin and some grain dust is about all I get. No nasties so far. Pour is a ever-so-slightly hazy gold with a... well... gushers head. Tentative first sip isn’t great, but it’s not noticeably infected... so that’s a start. I circle back around and try again and I get a bit of a medicinal edge to it, but other than that it is decent enough... resin and grain and all that. I was really hoping to put down the hostilities with Shorts... seems like I can’t catch a break with them and end up getting far more gushers and off beers than good ones. This one is on the spectrum but it’s decent enough to past muster, but not get a second look.

Dank aroma. Juicy, mild citrus and earthiness/dank flavor, not quite enough malt balance, with a quite jarring and intense grapefruit pith bitterness. Another reviewer I read called it "rough", and I completely agree. Definitely not "medium bitterness" as in the description. Not a bad IPA, but I definitely don’t need to try it again.

Bottle dated 10/14. They said it just arrived today. Brewery is a 5 hour drive from me but it takes 5 weeks to get from the bottling line to the shelf. Pretty unacceptable in my books. Just supports my theory that the sought after IPAs that everyone thinks are amazing are not necessarily better, they’re just consumed fresher since the demand pulls it through the system faster. I wouldn’t say it’s any worse than 5 week old Zombie Dust, it’s a shame I couldn’t drink it within a week or two and see if it’s as good fresh.
