Beer Review, Indiana Pale Ale

Indiana Pale Ale
Mishakawa, IN
6.2% ABV

Appearance: Orange/yellow body, very slightly hazy, with a half-finger white head. 4.0/5

Smell: Crisp dry hops up front, slightly citrusy grapefruit base. Pretty decent. 4.0/5

Taste: Dry hops on the tip of the tongue, a touch of citrus on the backend, and a cloying dryness to the finish. I've tried letting it warm a bit, but there's just not a lot of complexity here. It's pretty decent, but not great. 3.5/5

Mouthfeel: Thin mouthfeel with a high hop content and large amount of carbonation. 3.5/5

Drinkability: I like it okay, but with so many other great IPAs out there, it just doesn't stand out much. 3.5/5

Overall: 3.7/5
