    Brewery - DuClaw

    Location - Baltimore, MD

    ABV - 7.5%

    Website - Duclawbeer.com

    This brewery is based in Maryland and only retails in Maryland. This is the description from DuClaw.

    From first sweet sup to crisp, dry, finish, this IPA gets in your face with the exotic flavors and aromas of New Zealsnd motheka hops, yet maintains enough malt character to stay balanced but always ready to raze hell.

    My thoughts

    It's definitely crisp and dry. The hoppyness is at the forefront. There's a piney taste from the hops but somewhere in there there's some sweetness. Amazingly there's a maltyness that I don't expect from an IPA. I'm not a fan of IPAs normally but this one has me rethinking them. It's bitter but not so overpowering that I can't stand it. I'd say if you can get it it's definitely worth trying.

    Teasing us with a Maryland-only beer? Terrible! :D

    The beer sure sounds good. Glad it's got you reconsidering IPAs.

    I've Had That!!

    Bombed on me by a good buddy ;) this IPA is a nice change up from the west coast IPA's I normally do. Those crazy hops from New Zealand give it a sweetness not found in the west coast stuff.
