Urban Family Limesicle

Posted: August 3, 2017 in American IPA, Reviews, Urban Family Public House

Tonight’s beer is one that is a turbid IPA. A lot of people have their opinions on whether they are good or bad. Personally, it doesn’t matter to me one way or another. If a beer is good, I’ll keep drinking it.


ABV: 5.5%

Style: American IPA

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “We are a small craft brewery located in the Magnolia neighborhood of Seattle. We brew small batch beers that are yeast driven and inspired by French & Belgian farmhouses. Everything we do is done by hand the old fashioned way, utilizing local Pacific Northwest ingredients. Our beer can be found at our tasting room as well as finer beer bars and bottle shops across Washington State. For more information follow us on FB and Twitter.”

Random: Lime is one of my favorite ice pop flavors.

This beer poured with a huge, four finger, pure white head. The head was very fluffy, like whipped egg whites. It also dissipated slowly and left a lot of spiderweb lacing on the glass along with a crown. The body was very turbid and lemon-yellow in color. The nose had a lot of lime juice, lime zest and bread. It was all citrus. The taste was not nearly as good as the nose. It had artificial lime cleaner and a medicinal taste, like green Ny Quil. Lemon and lime pith and Sprite came through too. It was a bit more tart to me than it was hoppy. The body was on the medium side with light carbonation. It had a quick finish with artificial lime. The bottle was $10.49, which came to $.62 per ounce, which I thought was pretty expensive. I liked where this beer was conceptually, just not the execution.
