10 Barrel Joe India Pale Ale

10 Barrel Joe IPA. 6.9% Alc/Vol. 10 Barrel Brewing Company, Bend, Oregon.

Lightly hazed, bright golden color, lush, lace-leaving, huge ivory head. Looking great.

In the nose: beautifully bitter, flush with fruit. Big citrus, slight tropical. Very nice.

In the mouth: Great texture, big bitterness from the start. Sticks around for the finish. Medium-bodied, long-lasting flavor. Powerful bursts of orange and lime hop notes. Good drinking, great IPA. Go find it and drink it up.
