Val and I were watching “Project Runway” and a commercial for the new season of “Top Chef” came on. It’s an All Star season, so we’re even more excited than normal. It’s one of our favorite shows to watch together.
Style: American Double/Imperial IPA
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “AUTOHUMED WITH ENIGMA. It doesn’t matter what we brew as long as we mix wheat and citra. That makes us feel we’ll convey some juicy notes or fruit impression. To confuse the issue we will add some pleasant yeast, from far away. Plus some Vic Secret for good measure. No matter how much we resist the bend. Some dry-hopping causes our resolve to break. Because the hops bring us back. On that we can rely. The hops bring us back.”
Random: This beer comes in at 20 IBUs.
The beer poured with a half finger of fluffy white head that dissipated quickly and left no lacing on the glass. The body was moderately cloudy and bright orange with some carbonation visible. The nose had some wheat and a yeasty note with grassy hops. I couldn’t pick up specific things. The taste was much of the same. The yeast and wheat came through with some grass and light pine. The body was on the thick side and I picked up a hot alcohol note. There was generous carbonation. The finish was quick with wheat. This wasn’t my favorite Carton beer. I’m glad I tried it, but wouldn’t rush back to it.
