Bison Organic IPA -- top notch IPA

How does it look? How's the color? Clarity? Head?

  • Largely clear and golden, medium head.

How's the nose (smell)? Sweet, spicy, fruity?

  • Deceptively sweet -- the label says it "blends four malts and three hops" and the malt wins the scent contest however ...

How does it taste? Malty? Hoppy? Fruity? Chalky?

  • The hops win the taste contest.  The first taste is just a bit of malty sweetness before the strong hoppy bitterness takes over.  It fades in intensity after a moment then finishes with a good balance between the better and sweet.

Is it full-bodied? Medium bodied? Weak? Clean?

  • It has a medium body for an IPA but the finish takes so long that it makes up for missing the otherwise "full bodied" category.

Where did you buy it? How much was it?

  • Birmingham AL, $9 six pack glass bottles

What do you think overall? Would you buy it again?
 

  • I've been meaning to try it for ages but this was the first time I saw it in the cooler (I'm not a fan of buying warm beer).  I'm not an "organic" maven so I can't speak to that aspect, but the flavor quality is top notch and easily worth the cost.  I'm adding it to my regular IPA rotation.

I name and describe everything and classify most things. If 'it' already had a name, the one I just gave it is better.
