Forgotten Boardwalk Pocket Trick

This is another beer from a brewery by the house, although we’re still on our honeymoon. For the first time in a year, I actually ran out of posts, so I’m at least trying to get current. Let’s see how this was.

ABV: 8.5%

Style: American Double/Imperial IPA

Trivia: This beer comes in at 100 IBUs.

Random: I don’t understand why it’s more expensive to buy beer from the brewery than a regular beer store. One would think they would get a discount from going to the source.

This beer poured with a huge, three finger, loose, pure white head. It dissipated quickly, but left lots of spider web lacing on the glass. The body was cloudy and a dark orange color. I only saw a little bit of carbonation through the haziness. The nose was relatively muted. I picked up orange and mango segments, but not much else. After a few sniffs, there was also some grass clippings as well. The taste was much of the same and was more reminiscent of a pale ale than a double IPA. I got some mango, orange and grapefruit, but it quickly transitioned into grain and bread. It wasn’t overwhelmingly bitter and the alcohol came through, but not to the point of being a double IPA. The body was on the thicker side and had just enough carbonation. The finish was relatively quick for the style with grass. A can of this was $2.08, which came to $.17 per ounce. This wasn’t the best example of the style that I’ve ever had, but not the worst either.

Untappd Rating: 3.5/5.0
