Fordham Rams Head IPA

Another beer from Fordham. We tried to get down there to visit the brewery while we in Delaware, but the days they were open just didn’t match with our schedules. So, I picked up this beer to try when we got home. And yes, it’s another IPA, which I said that I was trying to get away from. Oh well. Let’s see how it went.

ABV: 7.5%

Style: American IPA

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Aggressively hopped, West Coast style IPA. Asserting its dominance with 75 IBUs, this beer contains pale, munich and rye malts, as well as Bravo, Chinook and Motueka hops. Representing a departure from Fordham’s characteristic sessionability beers, Rams Head challenges drinkers to ‘Defy the ordinary. Take life by the horns.'”

Random: I could still use about another 10 hours of sleep. I still feel exhausted.

This beer poured with a one finger, white head that was quick to dissipated and left no lacing on the glass. It did leave a crown on top of the very cloudy golden-orange color with high carbonation. The nose was really earthy with grass and pine. The taste was just as earthy. It was quite bitter with grass and pine. There was an herbal taste to it as well and no citrus whatsoever. The body was on the heavier side with moderate carbonation. It had a long, earthy and bitter finish. This beer was only alright and I wouldn’t have it again. In a craft beer world saturated by IPAs, this one just doesn’t stand out.
