SoMe Apostrophe IPA

Posted: December 9, 2015 in American IPA, Reviews, SoMe Brewing Company

SoMe was one of my favorite breweries that I visited in Maine, so I had to bring some bombers back from them. This is their IPA, which I didn’t get a chance to try while I was there, so it’s time to crack it open.

apostrophe

ABV: 6%

Style: American IPA

Trivia: According to wikipedia.com, “The apostrophe ( ’ or ‘ ) is a punctuation mark, and sometimes a diacritical mark, in languages that use the Latin alphabet or certain other alphabets. In English, it serves three purposes: The marking of the omission of one or more letters (as in the contraction of do not to don’t). The marking of possessive case (as in the eagle’s feathers, or in one month’s time). The marking by some as plural of written items that are not words established in English orthography (as in P’s and Q’s).”

Random: This is one of the few breweries that I’ve seen that doesn’t have a website.

This beer poured with a thick, three finger, cream-colored head that was slow to dissipate. It left a lot of lacing on the glass. The body was a slightly hazy orange color with moderate carbonation. The nose was very fragrant with citrusy hops. Specifically, I picked out lots of grapefruit. The taste had bright, citrusy hops as well. I got a lot of grapefruit notes, along with lemon zest and oranges. It was moderately bitter and had some pepper. The body was decently thick with high carbonation. It had a long finish with grapefruit flesh. A bomber of this will set you back $7.99, which was $.36 per ounce. This was a really nice beer that went down easily.

Untappd Rating: 4.5/5.0
