Cold Storage "Florida Avenue India Pale Ale"
Cold Storage Craft Brewery - Tampa, Florida USA
IPA (ABV 5.6%) (IBU 50)

[Suggested Glassware: Shaker Glass]

Rating: 3.2/5.0

Aroma: 7/10
Appearance: 3/5
Taste: 7/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 12/20

The pour was a clear medium amber with an average (1-2 finger) off white rocky head that lasted for a short while, reducing to a few puddles and large collar which produced good sticky lacing.

The aroma was of a light grain malt, floral hops and a light soapy yeast with notes of caramel and citrus (orange).

The taste was lightly sweet with a big caramel presence, which lasted throughout. And then had a decent hoppy citrus peel bitterness which increased slightly towards the end. The flavor hung around for a decent time after the swallow with the mild bitterness fading slowly into the background, which allowed the slight sweetness to blend well with the hops.

Mouthfeel was a little past light in body and mildly dry in texture with a medium carbonation.

Overall a nice light, not overly hoppy IPA, with an awesome drinkability...
