Pike IPA is next on my blogging/reviewing list. It’s pretty darn tasty stuff!
Coppery and clear, light tan head wasn’t bad and lacing was good.
Aroma is subdued but nice, earthy hops, piney resin, light malts.
Taste is pretty balanced, if a bit heavy on the earthy hops side. Malts are ample and create a nice balanced beer. I think the munich malt adds a nice dimension, it’s not something I see a lot in IPAs.
Body is medium and actually pretty drinkable, despite the rather heavy malt and hops assault on your tastebuds.
Overall this beer makes me want to try more of Pike’s beers. That should say it all right there.
