India Pale Ale

Ratebeer 3.22 58th percentile
Beer Advocate B+

Taste +2

This is a standard IPA with a sweet citrus and pine hop nose with caramel malts. The taste is pretty standard also with caramel/biscuit malts and a mild chaser of citrus/pine hops. Oddly the hops did not bite; it was a creamy and dry mouthfeel . This beer won the bronze medal at the 2010 World Beer Cup in the English IPA category.

Aftertaste +1

It was dry and clean with just a hint of citrus.

Alcohol Content +1 6.5%

Just as an IPA should be.

Value 0

I thought this was an ordinarily mild IPA.

Ingame Enhancement 0

Nope, I'm done.

Overall 4/10

I thought it was a little malty for an IPA made on the West Coast. It is a good thing I'm not a World Beer Cup judge. Hopheads would not approve.
