Natty Greene's "Elm Street"
Natty Greene's Brewing Company - Greensboro, North Carolina USA
IPA (ABV 5.8%)

[Suggested Glassware: Tulip Glass]

Rating: 3.3/5.0

Aroma: 7/10
Appearance: 3/5
Taste: 7/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 13/20

The pour was a clear dark golden straw yellow with a slight orange hue and an average white bubbly head that reduced down to a small collar with fair spotty lacing.

The aroma was lightly sweet with a light grain malt, mild floral hops and a doughy yeast with notes of tropical fruit (pineapple and mango), and caramel.

The taste was lightly sweet with a hint of caramel and fruit from the start with a mild hoppy bitterness creeping in towards the finish. The flavor lasted a good long while proceeding the swallow with a slightly hoppy fruitiness left to linger on the taste buds.

Mouthfeel was just past light in body and somewhat watery in texture with a mild to medium carbonation.

Overall I thought this was a bit on the mild side for an IPA, it most definitely could have been a tad heavier on the hops. With that being said it still was extremely tasty and did possess a very smooth drinkability...
