(MadTree Brewing Company)

One of three cans recently released from Ohio's MadTree Brewing Company. How could you pass up a can that's color just screams "check me out! I'm loaded with hops"! I know we couldn't, which is why we're looking forward to this one from Ohio's first canning craft brewery.

From the can:

"he subtle malt backbone combats the bitterness and intensity of floral, grassy, and citrus hop flavors. However, taste is perception. What’s your slant?"

Here we go...

Pour - dark honey to golden in appearance with a full inch of off-white head on top. Great carbonation levels and a clean, clear pour. We're ready to dive right in..

Aroma - citrus, pine, and floral hops aromas combine with some hints of straw and light caramel malts. The type of hop aromas you once only got from those West Coast IPAs are now prevalent in IPAs from all corners of the US. Hooray for hops.

Taste - bitter, citrusy flavors hit the tip of the tongue first while a nice semi-sweet malt presence soon comes into play. Floral, earthy, grassy hop flavors abound with some hints of pine and tropical fruits. At close to 7% this beer makes itself known without being overly aggressive. 

Overall - great American IPA. Plenty of hop presence without being abrasive, definitely balanced but all those C-hops make themselves known to your palate. A great addition to MadTree's three flagship canned offerings and certainly worthy of any hophead's beer shopping list.


Note - we loved the design on this can. The inkblot illustration was done by artist, and musician, Margaret Weine, while the design of the can was done by John Pattison. MadTree is one of a few craft brewers who provides this information on the actual can.
