Round Guys Debaser

Posted: August 21, 2016 in American Double/Imperial IPA, Reviews, Round Guys Brewing Company

I’m finally getting to the end of the beers that I picked up at Round Guys. I recently read that they are doing construction there to put in an outdoor space, which should be pretty cool.

ABV: 7.7%

Style: American Double/Imperial IPA

Trivia: According to the brewery, “Here come your hops. Gigantic. Overtaking a wave of caramel flavored malts. Piney pine & grapefruity grapefruit-resiny hop machine. Medium body. Scotty’s theme. Debaser’s gone to heaven, muddled up against a hopless galatea of cloudy spun, ever rotating hop bud spears.”

Random: This is a seasonal beer, but the website doesn’t specify what season.

This beer poured with a half a finger of white head. It dissipated slowly and left no lacing on the glass, but it left a slight crown on top of the body. The body itself was slightly hazy, bright orange, and had moderate carbonation. The nose wasn’t like the typical double IPA. It had a lot more orange segment notes than I’m used to. Some lemon as well, but I didn’t get pine or grapefruit. Malt wasn’t apparent in the nose either. The taste was equally light for the style. I picked up some pine resin on the taste, but the same orange segment note came through. Lemon zest came through next. There was malt on the taste and presented as light toasted malt. It didn’t have all that much complexity. The body was bordering on thin with high carbonation. It had a quick finish with citrus zest and pine resin. A can of this was $5 ($.41 per ounce). I didn’t have a problem drinking this, but I don’t feel the need to have it again.
