Beer 288/365 – Harpoon IPA

Harpoon IPA

Style: American IPA

ABV: 5.9%

Purchased at: Vintage Estate – Boardman OH

What makes this beer different: Pretty tame for an IPA

Will I be drinking this again: Maybe but there are better IPAs out there.

Grade: B

8/23/2010: Another beer I picked up on a whim because of cool labeling. I am willing to take a gamble on a beer every now and again, especially if its under $2. Plus I know Harpoon on the whole is a pretty decent brewery.

The nose has some citrus to it, with some earthy tones. The flavors are pretty subdued for an IPA, but not bad. Citrus/Floral hops, pale malt, and a little bit of earthiness. Mouthfeel is a bit light for the style, in fact I would have guess this to be an American Pale Ale if I didn’t already know it was an IPA. Very average, nothing great but not much bad about it.

Picture of the day: Ummm and what did you do with this gun sir?
