In a blind tasting by BJCP trained experts, this beer rated


101 North Brewing Co. Indigo Pale Ale

Aroma: “Very delicate nose. There’s not a lot to work with. There’s pleasant tropical mango fruitiness and a touch of pine plus a very light herbal note that we attribute to agave.”

Flavor: “It’s a pale ale, all right. Earthy, slightly woody hops flavor with an herbal edge that we surmise is the agave, but it’s not easy to identify. It does linger into the finish.”

Overall: “Somewhat one dimensional floral character throughout. And although nothing is wrong with the beer, nothing really stands out. That said, we’d still drink a ton of this.”
