Party Hat IPA

Nice pale-yolk opacity with egg-white fuzz. Even lacing of desert dunes. Grapefruit-pineapple nose leans tropical, but shows sweet lemon pith on the back. Orange blossom and sweet basil flower. Active mineral component to the sip, lemon oils and grapefruit on the slug, and a resinous and bitter hempseed on the gulp; though sweet citrus sails through. There are competing elements here, that defy cohesion; flashes of brilliance, and tumult. Feels like a damn party alright. .

Wichita Brewing Company & Pizzeria

V-6 IPA

Blood orange, cypress bark, and dried grapefruit skin. Dried peas, grilled pineapple, dried, folded hops that smack of poblano. Spiced mouthfeel resonates with nutmeg and brown sugar malt suggestions, bit-o-honey, slight bitter turn on the follow-up that feels like dried lavender and chicory side hustles. Very good ipa all in all. Feels sessionable initially, but definitely dragging its abv across your face rug. #wichitabrewing #vsixipa #ipa #indiapaleale #ale #beer #biere #bier #birra #cerveza #ksbeer #wichitabrewingco #wichitaks — 2 months ago

Ghost In The Machine Imperial IPA

Pure, white grapefruit juice color, with whipped-to-peaks egg white top that sticks for sheet lacing of anatomical figure silhouettes. Bright orange, sweet grapefruit and peach blossom scents. Magnolia, jasmine and daisy perfumes. Perfectly balanced mouthfeel delivers grapefruit-creamsicle with bits of lemon peel in a marmalade pudding entry. This beauty turns on lime and juicy grapefruit with a dash of white pepper, lemon oil, tangerine, and an awesome burst of vivacious and near-effervescent lemon tart and grapefruit soda. Ultimately holds true to beer with notes of barley, touch of malt, hop textures, lemongrass and fresh oregano. Really sexy ipa here, might improve with a little bottle rest too! Will revisit, if still available. #parishbrewing #parishbrewingco #ghostinthemachine #ghostinthemachinedipa #Labeer #beer #biere #birra #bier #ale #paleale #dankbeer #indiapaleale #ipa #dipa #doubleipa #broussardla #hops #abv — 3 months ago

Southern Tier Brewing Company

Imperial Pumking Ale

Surprisingly light colored head that sprung up like a ghost and then shot back down to a smoky whisper. Rum notes with caramel cream in the lead; spun sugar, cinnamon and clove with yogurt pretzel and honeyed tea. Spicy entry boasts sweetness but not overwhelming. Pumpkin oil, vanilla, oaky caramel, cinnamon and bitter note that suggests charred pecan, and peppercorns. This beer is good because it doesn’t stay sweet throughout and instantly congers the autumnal spirit. It doesn’t get too artificial, borrowing most of its flavors from barrel. #pumpkin #pumpkinbeer #ale #SouthernTier #imperialpumpkin #pumking #beer #seasonalbeer #oakaged #halloween #alehallows — a year ago

Dogfish Head Brewery

75 Minute IPA

Red gold body with a Matisse sketched white ring and merengue peaked, sheet-lacing. Clean citrus nose exhibiting clementine and dried pineapple, Meyer lemon and a faint funky-persimmon and lotus. There is something pleasant about the naturalness of the aromatics here with dried lemon verbena and Calloway seed. Orange and tangerine eclipse the lemon on the palate and add sweet grapefruit, and a clove note that tightly binds the whole. The bitterness being mitigated by the maple was brilliant here! Makes the Dogfish 90 seem clunky in comparison. I am a fan of this manifestation. Careful crafting and a simple solution to tune aggressive hops. There is no maple flavor btw. .

Free State Brewing Co.

Yakimaniac IPA

Gilt gold and star bright crown of egg foam white. Soft grapefruit, tangerine, orange, and lemon twist bursts, candied ginger and lemon merengue nose commotion. Ripe lemon, ripe lime, pink grapefruit, raspberry ketones, beeswax, lemon ice, frozen jalepeno, and clean berry taste, with lemongrass presiding. #freestatebrewing #freestate #lfk #lawrencekansas #ipa #yakimaniac #indiapaleale #ale #beer #bier #biere #birra #hops — 2 months ago

Cycle Brewing

Crank IPA

Crank ipa is hazy cross of pink grapefruit juice. Opaque and milky. White and loose-bubbles lacing that holds together well, before ripping to a rounded torn rag paper. Grapefruit sweetness extends to the nose, with tangerine and orange essence. Touches of peach and lemon, and maybe daisies. Winning mouthfeel of citrus zing and stacks of acid, with a glandular response smoothing the edges like mined salt sans the flavor. Lime and grapefruit with chamomile and lemon, always shimmering on the tongue. This is not the most complex ipa, but it is certainly pleasant. It hides its alcohol well, and pedals like a well oiled machine. Downhill runs and flats. #beer #bier #biere #birta #ale #indiapaleale #IPA #crankipa #cyclebrewing #FLbeer #floridabeer #StPetersburgfl — 3 months ago

Toppling Goliath Brewing Company

Pseudo Sue Galaxy Dry Hopped Pale Ale

Thought I already rated this one, but...drinking. A hazy lil number with a fluffy quilt on top sewn from grapefruit pith. Bright, fresh, tangerine and grapefruit nose, with candied grapefruit peel, lime kefir, and zippy lime zest. Smells like summer! Citrus tangy on the palate as well, with ruby grapefruit deconstruction separating peel from pulp and pith, and cosmic zest shimmering like stardust. Quince, lime slices, lemon with a touch of sugar, dried orange, dried mango, white pepper and edible flower or snap pea, green banana turn to clean fruit married to a bitter finish. Really great beer, with acids calling out salivary catalysts, for a mouth coating, lip smacking interplay. This has such an elegant balance, it seems like something squeezed straight out of the jungle. .

Sixty-One IPA

Snow White frosting over vodka-cran colored beer with cirrus drifts. Cartoon stubble lacing. Raspberry, blackberry, grape-y with blood orange, dried orange, red grapefruit, hibiscus and citrus crowd. Lovely entry, reminiscent of bandol rose, with a suggestion of pink lemonade, bay, orange pith, lemongrass, and cardamom. Dry and satisfying in all respects. Carrots and cran-mint come to mind. Festive and bright!! #dogfishhead #dogfishheadbrewing #dogfishheadsixtyone #beer #bier #biere #birra #ale #ipa #syrahipa #continuallyhopped #hops — 2 months ago

Barrel Aged Righteous Ale

Solid crown just off-white and slow to dissipate. Caramel and vanilla scrawled on oak, rubber band and pencil with golden apple and just a dusting of cinnamon. Tropical notes of dried pineapple, lemon cookie, peach skin, mocha and ripe butternut. Creamy, and initially caramel, but descends to tamarind, ginger, bitter orange, star anise, dark toasted oak, cinnamon bark, lemon zest, and finally rounds out to vanilla bean. Sublime walk through a jungle at sunset, ripe, pungent, seductive and still plenty of machete fodder. #sixpoint #righteousale #brooklyn #rye #barrelaged #ale #beer #dankbeer #doublewood #doublebarrel #righteous — a year ago
