Lift Bridge Hop Dish IPA

This 7.5% ABV India Pale Ale is from The Lift Bridge Brewing Company of Stillwater, Minnesota. It uses seven varieties of hops. The bottle says "a pot-luck of seven hop varieties."  I am guessing that is how it gets it name; in Minnesota, if you went to a pot-luck supper, you might bring your "hot dish" casserole with several ingredients in it.

The beer pours copper and amber in color. There is a short and thin head of off-white foam. The aroma is tangy, citrus, overripe melons, oranges, and berries over caramelly malt. The taste is fruity, grassy, following the aromas, big, round and lush. The finish is quite bitter. The beer is medium bodied and smooth. I’d put this in the DIPA category, it drinks like one.
