Full Sail IPA

Full Sail IPA
6% ABV, 60 IBUs

Forty-Seven self proclaimed “Fermenters of Godlike Nectar” own the Full Sail Brewing Company out of Hood River, Oregon.  These guys have a four day work week and judging by the description on the box, I’m picturing a bunch of hippie and surfer dudes, half of them with long hair, and the other half with longer beards.  

Full Sail IPA is an English style IPA with light citrus and herbal hops with a solid malt backbone.  The initially bright hops fade fairly quickly and this turns into a well balanced easy drinking IPA.  I’d say it’s average and disappointing after reading the phrase “Godlike Nectar”.  This would serve as a great every day IPA or all-night session beer if the price was right but I wouldn’t recommend seeking this one out with the plethora of other delicious and comparably priced IPAs available on shelves in the highly competitive IPA market.
