I’ve been spending more time in Pennsylvania lately and one of the more exciting things that happened around Philly Beer Week is that they are getting in beers from 3 Floyds. I think because the market is getting more competitive every day, we’re starting to see some distribution from breweries that would never send beer here a few years ago. I’m definitely excited to get their beers with more frequency. It took a business trip out to Ohio for me to try their libations 3 years ago.
Style: American IPA
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “LazerSnake is a good old-fashioned Indiana Pale Ale. Special Bavarian hops and Indiana malt give LazerSnake its smooth non-filtered appeal to all craft beer and macro enthusiasts.”
Random: This beer comes in at 55 IBUs.
The beer poured with a one finger, white head. It dissipated at a moderate pace and left very little on the glass. The body was a slightly cloudy yellow with a decent amount of carbonation visible. The nose was almost like a throwback IPA. I picked up lots of pine with a touch of caramel malt. There was some grass as well. The taste was much of the same. It had a lot of pine sap and grass to it. There was some sweetness from the caramel malt as well. The body was on the medium side for thickness with a lot of carbonation. It had a lengthy finish with pine sap. I thought this was a good beer and it went down easily. It didn’t pull any punches, but I would definitely have it again.
