Short's Brewing Sticky Icky Icky IPA

4.12 out of 5 on Beer Advocate. 95 overall and 93 style scores on RateBeer. 3.93 out of 5 on Untappd.

Sticky Icky Icky is a radiantly dank, clear copper-colored American India Pale Ale loaded with citrusy hop aromas. This light, yet full-bodied, ale seems perfectly balanced by equal parts sweet malt and fruity juicy hops. A medium bitterness lingers in the finish with a subtle earthiness.

7.1% ABV
78 IBU

Recently bought a 6 pack of Short's Brewing Sticky Icky Icky IPA from Savor Pint.

Savor Pint recently posted that they had recently got this one in. As I had never heard of Short's Brewing, and the name of Sticky Icky Icky, I knew I had to go find it.

Do really like the graphics and colors on the packaging. Certainly is eye catching. If I could, I would also jump into a big pile of hops as well.

One beer that isn't eye catching is Pabst Blue Ribbon.

Sums up PBR drinkers. Of course they get drunk after one beer.

How PBR drinkers teach their kids to ride a bike.

How PBR drinkers put up Christmas lights.

PBR drinkers are close to their dogs.

One beer that could be possibly worse than PBR is Busch Light.

Typical Busch Light drinkers.

Busch drinkers parties look lit.

How Busch Light drinkers smoke pot and snort coke.

Major drawback of Busch Light.

Who could pass up trying a beer named Sticky Icky Icky? Not this guy. Miller light drinkers probably.

Went back to Green Lawn Cemetery, yet again.

A rather unfortunate first name.

Somewhat unusual name.

Homemade marker.

Some markers with porcelain portraits.

Never have seen a marker list crippled on it.

Some asian markers.

The artwork for Sticky Icky Icky is among my favorite that I've recently come across lately. Wish Kroger or Giant Eagle would carry more of the smaller brewers.

Pours with a decent head and nice lacing. Some citrus aromas are there. Little bit of malt.Nice hoppiness.

Taste has some nice citrus to it. Grapefruit along with a bit of orange. Malt is a tad noticeable. Pleasant bitterness at the end. Doesn't seem like it is a 78 IBU beer. Bitterness is cut by the citrus and malt. Rated it 4 out of 5 on Untappd. That is a slight conservative rating.
