Exile IPA

 This is a 7.2% India Pale Ale from the Exile Brewing Company of Des Moines, Iowa. 

The beer pours orange amber in color. There is a massive head of bubbling, foam, off-white in color.  I would think this was too old by the way it pours, but it was just released. The aroma is lightly yeasty, not getting much else. Bad signs, of a bad bottle here. The taste is mild fruit and mild caramel. The finish is moderately bitter with some tangy citrus and grapefruit. The beer has a great mouthfeel, smooth and softly carbonated. No, the bottle is not bad, but I am not sure what this was supposed to be. An English IPA? A very mild American IPA? It is decent enough in the end, but I’m confused by this beer.
