Inukshuk IPA

16 oz pint at Taco Mac, East West Connector, Atlanta/Austell, GA, USA.
Strange one this.
The beer pours an unattractive, soup-like, nasty, brown, murky color like dirty water. A mediocre head and virtually no retention complete the ugliness of the delivery – really unattractive color, especially for something that calls itself an IPA.
The funny thing is, that the beer tastes a LOT better than the appearance would suggest, BUT it is an incredibly fruity, sweet IPA and NOT one that shows any signs of significant hop bitterness or any alcohol (I was amazed to see this listed at 7%).
There are some light pineapple and bubble-gum notes, but also some almond (marzipan) tastes too. It drinks a bit better than that description might suggest, but there’s virtually no hop bitterness that I pick up.
Difficult to get past the soup that greets the eyes, and pretty much a terrible beer if you want a bitter, American IPA, but it tasted better than all of that sounds. having said that, this needs to go back to the drawing board before I would EVER considering buying it again.
