Commodore Perry IPA
Great Lakes Brewery
From The Brewery:
A medium-bodied and well hopped India Pale Ale with a dry, fruity aftertaste.
Appearance: I poured the IPA hard into a pint glass revealing its beautiful snow white creamy chunky head. Its color is a golden orange, clear and clean, and left amazing lacing all the way down.
Smell: Huge aroma: flowery citrus and fruits such as apples up front. Sweet honeysuckle and candied fruits on the end.
Taste: An amazing tasting beer; sweet citrus and orange zest with big apricot. Bittering tart and sweet finish; big hops and great flavors. No metalic tastes often found in super hoppy beers.
Mouthfeel: Big and drying, with fine carbonation aiding the creamy head. The size stands up to the flavor.
Drinkability: Low to medium; this is a heavy and hoppy beer. This is not for beginners.
Notes: Great example of an American IPA. Great Lakes come through with a win; again!
