Wipeout I.P.A.

Review #2600 on BA. On tap at Taco Mac, East West Connector, Austell, Atlanta, GA, USA. 16 oz pour.
The beer comes as a hazed, mid-orange pour with the emphasis on the cloudy nature of the beer. Quite ‘dense’ looking which is OK for the nice, two-finger head that forms, but less appealing in the body of the beer.
Typical, west coast, American IPA is the simple analysis here; large, piney, resinous grapefruit in the nose which intensifies on warming. More of the same in the tastes with perhaps a bit more sweet grapefruit than the nose would suggest. Simple aftertaste and a few hoppy burps – a good sign.
Alcohol quite well hidden.
Served too cold, this beer benefits from warming a bit and could do with a body that was less clouded. Apart from that it’s a typical, solid, west coast example fo an IPA which is both good and bad – you get what they say you will get, but at the same time the beer could honestly be one of dozens and dozens of other beers – ultimately, OK, but largely forgettable and nondescript. I’m looking for something a bit ‘cleaner’ both in look and taste to give higher scores.
