Stoneface Blip

Posted: November 28, 2016 in American IPA, Reviews, Stoneface Brewing Co.

I’m listening to a podcast about the Black Dahlia murder. One of the people on this podcast is the son of the main suspect. He wrote a book that is now going on my Amazon wishlist. Let’s get to something happier…like this beer.

ABV: 5.6%

Style: American IPA

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “A ‘small’ IPA that’s been dry hopped with Mosaic, Columbus, and Simcoe hops.”

Random: If Val and I go back to Maine, we’re making our way back here again. The beers were outstanding and the staff was quite friendly and informative.

This beer poured with a huge, three finger white head. It took forever to dissipate and left a lot of lacing on the glass. The body was the color of melted lemon Italian ice with light carbonation visible. The nose was filled with lemon flesh and fresh-cut grass clippings. Weirdly enough, I got Lemon Italian ice too. The taste was also very light and not nearly as pungent as the nose. Lemon pith and a vegetal note too. It was almost like arugula. The body was thin with light carbonation that needed to be dialed up. It had a quick finish with the same vegetal notes and grass. I received this beer as a gift, so I have no idea how much it was and New Jersey doesn’t get distribution. This reminded me more of a pale ale than a true IPA, but it was alright. I don’t think it was their best showing, but definitely drinkable.
