  • Pour: The Melvin IPA pours a deep copper-amber with a 1+ finger, soapy, off-white head with good retention and sticky lacing.
  • Nose: The nose is a big blast of tropical fruit, citrus, pine, floral, and malt.  There are aromas of pineapple, tangerine, grapefruit rind, mango, passion fruit, pine resin, wild flowers, toffee/caramel.
  • Taste: The taste of the Melvin IPA follows the nose... lots of hoppy citrus and tropical fruit flavors along with earthy, floral, and malty notes.  There are notes of pine, cedar, pink grapefruit juice, tangerine, lemon zest, mango, sweet caramel, black tea, and spices.
  • Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied with moderate carbonation, the mouthfeel is sticky, slick, but crisp with a dry and slightly bitter finish.
Overall pairing: The punchy, aggressive hop-forward character of the Melvin IPA is perfect for the in-your-face honesty and aggression of the wonderful "Sieg Howdy!" by the always funny, always poignant, and always great Jello Biafra And The Melvins!!  Get some!!!
