Mad Anthony IPA

My buddy Jason was in Indiana and called to ask if I wanted a six-pack of Mad Anthony Brewing Company IPA, so naturally I said yes. The beer pours an amber color with a frothy white head that leaves some lacing on the glass as it dissipates. The aroma consists of grapefruit, tangerine, sugar, orange, lemon, pine, and caramel. The taste is bitter at first with plenty of citrus flavors consisting of grapefruit, tangerine, orange, and lemon. There is a sweetness that comes out with sugar and caramel before turning bitter again on the finish with pine and spruce. The alcohol content is 6.5% ABV. This was a solid west coast IPA with lots of citrus flavors that attack the tongue without much interference from the caramel base, although the slight sweetness is much appreciated.
