Singletrack Mind IPA by Allegheny City Brewing was judged as a New England IPA - BJCP category 21B - specialty IPA. The beer poured a rich orange gold with a huge white head that left lacing on the glass and was quite hazy. The aroma was a huge hop aroma up front of dank, citrus,(orange and lemon) and melon hop notes, followed by a light crackery malt background and clean alcohol that tied it all together. The flavor followed the aroma having huge citrus and melon flavors with just a touch of bready malt and clean alcohol. The finish was resiny yet with a touch of sweetness to keep it from being overly harsh, leaving just a touch of hop flavors lingering on the tongue. This was a lovely New England style IPA that is perfect while relaxing on the deck after a long afternoon of fall yardwork and watching the steaks grill.
