Mispillion River Not Today Satan

Posted: March 25, 2017 in American IPA, Mispillion River Brewing, Reviews

The name of this beer reminds me of the Church Lady skit from SNL, which always makes me crack up. If you haven’t seen them, I highly recommend searching them on You Tube.

ABV: 7.3%

Style: American IPA

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Even Hell is looking for more diversity these days. That is why a lot of folks claim Billy, from Human Resources, was appointed the new Lord of Darkness. Like Billy, this beer is a little unexpected. The unholy joining of El Dorado, Centennial, Columbus, Cascade, and Mosaic hops and 7.3% Alc. by Vol. leaves souls begging for a drink of water. Not today, Satan. Not today.”

Random: This came in at 55 IBUs.

This beer poured with one finger of cream-colored head. It dissipated quickly and left some lacing on the glass. The body was slightly hazy and amber-colored. I saw moderate carbonation in the body. The nose had some pine with some roasty malts. It also had a vegetal note with a herbaceous quality. The taste was even more hoppy than the nose. I picked up pine and green vegetables. After a few sips, I picked up green bell pepper. The malt came through a lot more at the end of the sip. It had some heavy caramel malt that was quite sweet. The booze was also pretty hot on this one. The body was on the medium side with high carbonation. It had a quick finish with the sweet malt. A can of this was $1.83, which came to $.15 per ounce. I thought this was a decent beer, but it seemed to be dialed up a little too much.

Untappd Rating: 3.5/5.0
