Fish Tale Organic IPA


This local IPA features organic pale and crystal malts, and it appears that there is only organic Pacific Gem hops. Pacific Gem is New Zealand hop that I believe is high in Alpha acid. Let’s see how it is…

India Pale Ale. 6.7% ABV. 42 IBUs. Washington.

Dark amber, hints of copper in the color, and okay head.

Nose is a bit closed. Some hops come through with a bit of pine, but that’s about it.

Slightly over carbonated, but good thickness.

Hop aggressive on the palate. Some caramel and pine with a hint of citrus. Strangely sweet with a little hint of citrus and brown sugar. Not getting much else. A bit of bitterness on the back and a bit off-balanced. Burnt meat on the back end.

Not all that impressed with this effort. 81 points.
