Indica India Pale Ale

Name – Indica India Pale Ale
Country – United States
Type – American IPA

Appearance – Pours a very cloudy dark orange color with nice slight off white head that laced the glass a bit.

Smell – Quite strong hops.  Piney, floral and citrusy on those.  Mild malt backing to it.

Taste – Big on the hops.  Piney and citrus hop flavors all the way through.  The taste lingers afterward for a good while as well.  Some sweet caramel taste in there but the hops are overpowering that.

I will be one of the first ones to admit I love hoppy beers, especially IPAs, but I found this one slightly over board.  While the hops were nice it just didn’t seem like it mixed well.  The bitter after taste is not always a bad thing but I found this one sort of unusual.  A major hop head may really like this one but if you like a malt backing to it then you probably wouldn’t care for this one.

Overall Grade – C

    Funny name for the beer. This one is really playing on the fact that hops are in the same family as a certain herb. Maybe it was doomed to begin with.
