It’s been awhile since I’ve been to Forgotten Boardwalk. It’s one of my favorite breweries to visit since they have games and skee ball. Val usually beats me. Anyways, this is one of their newer releases that I picked up at the beer store.
Style: American Double/Imperial IPA
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Unbeknownst to most: The feral cat is the sideshow attraction and mascot to the boardwalk. No one quite knows exactly when the undomesticated felines made their homes under the piers, but most say it happened when the boardwalk was first built back in the 1880s. The reason? Some say it is due to the scraps of food dropped by tourists that slip through the cracks of the planks. These curious creatures have roamed the boardwalks for over a century, spending their days in the shadows largely undetected by human eyes. Yet, the inquisitive cat, would have witnessed all that is lost, yet not forgotten.”
Random: This beer was a September release.
The beer poured with a one finger, white head. It dissipated very quickly and left minimal lacing on the glass. The body was a hazy, dark yellow color with little carbonation visible. The nose was fragrant with flowers and grass and a touch of mango. The taste was quite bitter and had a lot of grass and then went into grapefruit pith and tangerine. The body was on the medium side with enough carbonation. It had a citrusy finish that hung around for awhile. I thought this beer was alright, but nothing amazing. I wouldn’t rush to have this again.
