Share This Review

IPA1A is an American IPA brewed by 26 Degrees Brewing Co., and for the purposes of this craft beer review, the ale was served in an IPA glass from a can.

Appearance

Pours a cloudy orange with an inch-thick, off-white head whose modest retention leaves a soapy ring of residue.

Aroma

The aroma is pleasant with notes of citrus, pine, and malt.

Flavor

The palate opens with a big, juicy bite of grapefruit and orange followed by herbal and piney hops. Malt is subdued and makes just a brief appearance at the finish. That malt does impart a welcome flash of caramel, though.

Mouthfeel

The mouthfeel has a medium body, a moderate carbonation, and a dry finish.

Overall

The palate for the IPA1A is predominantly hoppy and a little more balance would be preferable. However, it is quite refreshing and a solid representation of the style.

About the American IPA

The American IPA is the most popular craft beer style in the United States. And for good reason, too. When well crafted, its hoppy goodness delivers intense aromas and flavors that can be citrusy and fruity; floral and piney; earthy and herbal. The hops are complemented by a wide range of malts and other ingredients. It’s a popular playground for brewers to express their creativity and a veritable cornucopia for craft beer connoisseurs.
