Two Roads Honeyspot Road White IPA

Posted: March 6, 2014 in American IPA, Reviews, Two Roads Brewing Company

Yet another work day over with. Today wasn’t so bad, but tomorrow is going to be rough. I have to get to work extra early, which is never, ever fun and we have 37 trucks on the road. This translates into chaos. Yay! On the bright side, at least I only have two days left this week of work. So, this was a beer that the other half picked up for me while in Connecticut over the holidays. Let’s see how it went.

ABV: 6%

Style: American IPA

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “The Two Roads interpretation of this emerging beer style naturally takes a road less traveled. Unlike other versions, ours employs an American ale yeast and no spices. The result is a soft wheat backdrop that accentuates the Pacific Northwest hop character.”

Random: Tonight’s episode of “Grey’s Anatomy” was like a collection of the worst cover songs ever.

This brew poured with a one finger, pure white head that dissipated rather quickly and left no lacing on the glass. The body was a very hazy yellow with lots of visible detritus and heavy carbonation. The nose had a lot of wheat, with some floral hops as well. The taste was a bit more towards the IPA side of things with some floral hops with a hint of lavender. The beer then went into some malt with caramel and then some citrus came through. The body was on the thicker side and the carbonation was lighter than expected. The finish was long with citrus. This brew was only alright to me. I wouldn’t rush back to have again.
