DuClaw puts out so many different beers that it’s very hard to keep up with them. I didn’t get to try the first Hop Continuum, which is sad because the first one was a blood orange IPA. Maybe they’ll put it out again.
Style: American IPA
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “The 2nd entry in the series, a Red IPA hybrid hopped solely with Mosaic hops, is medium-bodied and crisp, with flavor and aroma profiles dominated by big, vibrant citrus flavors like tangerine, apricot, and mango, accented by resinous notes of pine. These tart, sweet flavors give way to a lingering, bitter hop finish that combine to mask a moderately strong 6% ABV. Enter the continuum and explore the possibilities!”
Random: We got our DVR down to 18% today. It’s never been that low.
This beer poured with a thick, two finger, cream-colored head. It dissipated slowly and left a lot of lacing on the glass. The body was a hazy red with moderate carbonation visible. The nose had notes of tropical fruit, specifically mango and some stone fruit as well. Dank pine was present as well. The taste had a lot of pine and grapefruit up front. There was also some slightly sweet malt. Tropical fruits came through as well, but there were more present in the nose. It had a thick body with moderate carbonation. The finish was rather quick with dank pine. This was $1.59 for the single bottle, which came to $.13 per ounce. This was an alright beer, but nothing amazing. I wouldn’t have this one again.
