Tonight’s review hails from a brewery in Shamong, New Jersey. It’s my first beer from them, so let’s see how they stack up.
Style: American IPA
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Brotherton IPA is golden hop magic in liquid form. This beer is named for its insanely juicy and intense hop flavors. As with all of our hop-driven beers, Brotherton IPA is gloriously unfiltered to retain every drop of hop goodness we’ve put so much effort into creating. This IPA delivers pure hop character for your sensory pleasure. Dry-hopped profoundly with Citra hops, this beer drips with notes of lychee, tropical citrus, and deep dank hop character.”
Random: This is available on draft only.
The beer poured with a full finger of thick, pure white head. It took awhile to dissipate and left some lacing on the glass. The body was cloudy and bright yellow with moderate carbonation visible. The nose was fragrant with lots of tropical fruit notes and flowers. Citrus segments, specifically grapefruit was apparent as well. The taste was just as inviting as the nose. It started with a lot of citrus flesh with grapefruit and oranges and pith as well. The tropical fruit came next with plenty of pineapple juice. The malt was mild and at the end of the sip. The body of the beer was almost creamy with moderate carbonation. It had a lengthy and fruity finish. This beer was an excellent example of a New England IPA. This beer is worth searching out and I’m going to have to make my way to the brewery sooner rather than later.
