544. Lake Placid Pub & Brewery IPA

Lake Placid IPAMy brother in law picked up a growler and glass from Lake Placid Pub & Brewery when he went out there for some hiking and rock climbing. Another growler and glass for the collection.

Appearance is a very nice copper color with a thick off white head. The aroma had a nice mix of floral and piney hops. Taste was what I would expect from an American IPA, hop forward with plenty of pine and some citrus notes but balanced well with caramel malts. Fairly bitter finish reminds you this is an IPA.

Overall a solid American IPA, nothing crazy hoppy or citrusy but just a nice beer.

Alcohol Content: 6.8% ABV
Calories: ???
IBU (Bitterness): 67

Brewers Description: A tribute to the original West Coast-style IPA’s, our IPA is aggressively hopped for a citrus and piney flavor and aroma, but maintains a subtle, bready malt backbone.
