Actual Magnon

Posted: June 17, 2017 in American IPA, Reviews, The Actual Brewing Co.

One of the things that shocked me about Ohio was their pizza. I didn’t expect their pizza to be great, but at work, we ordered a Hawaiian pizza. When it came, I wondered what smelled like dessert. It was the pizza. It had almonds and cinnamon on it. This was unlike any pizza that I ever had, although I can’t say that I disliked it.

ABV: 7.3%

Style: American IPA

Trivia: It seems to be a growing trend with Ohio breweries not having information about beers listed. This brewery has a bunch of other beers listed with descriptions, but not this one. Given the popularity of IPAs, I assume this would be the first one that they would put up.

Random: Whenever I blog for long periods of time, my big cat tries to climb on my laptop.

The beer poured with a one finger, cream-colored head. It went away quickly, but still left some lacing on the glass. The body was a clear, amber color with moderate carbonation. The nose was more lemony than any other IPA I can remember reviewing. It had grass and lemon pith and then crackery malt. The taste was much of the same. It had lemon juice, lemon pith and fresh cut grass. I was happy that it didn’t go into the realm of lemon cleaner. The body was light for the ABV and very easy drinking. The finish was quick with lemon verbena and grass. I enjoyed this IPA. The flavors were more like a pale ale, but I would have no problem having this one again while watching a game.
