For the past few years, I have had the worst of luck at making my way to an O’Dempsey’s tasting. The last time I missed them was at the Great Atlanta Beer Festival, which I had unfortunately had to skip out on due to last minute travelling plans.

The Inukshuk Taste
O’Dempsey’s Inukshuk IPA is a well balanced IPA. The bitter hops flavor lasts throughout the swig, but is never overwhelming. When it first hits your lips, the Inukshuk IPA gives you a West Coast punch of hops and citrus, and then it finishes mild and malty. This is a beer that would please hop heads and make believers of those who don’t venture out into the IPA world.
Simply put; it’s a damn good beer.
