Christy Gives Workhorse IPA a 3.7

This is the first installment of our Staff Beer Ratings, a brand new program at The Beer Authority that hopes to give a voice to our talented beer staff.  Several times a week we'll be posting ratings by each of our staff (and occasionally myself) on bottled beers in the store.  We're using the system so that many of you can have a comparison basis for their picks.  The beers they pick are compensated by the store and we've encouraged them to choose new and/or interesting beers.

Laurelwood Workhorse IPA

Commercial Description: Workhorse is a true West Coast IPA, featuring over-the-top hop flavor and aroma. Three separate dry hop additions in the fermenter make this one of our hoppiest beers to date. 7.5% ALC by Volume. 17º Plato O.G. 3º Plato T.G. 80 IBU
3.7 Aroma: 7  Appearance: 3  Taste: 8  Palate: 4  Overall: 15

Crisp, clean aroma, with a hint of hops.  Nice medium-caramel color.  Initial flavor is a bit malty for an IPA, but the finish is very hoppy.  Overall, a very solid IPA.
