Tonight’s beer is one that I got on the way back home from a trip to NYC. We stopped at a restaurant that has been advertised as a great beer bar. When I got the beer menu, it took a few tries to find a beer because so many of their selections were tapped. I ended up with this one. Let’s see how it was.
Style: American IPA
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “One of the juiciest and most fruit forward IPAs we’ve made! Brewed with American barley & wheat, with a healthy dose of British malted oats. Hopped in the kettle with Warrior & Zythos, conditioned on pineapple, mango, passionfruit & grapefruit puree, and then dry-hopped intensely with Citra & Mosaic. This beer is about as dank as they get.”
Random: American Barley is the malt in this beer.
The beer poured with a half a finger of white head. It dissipated slowly and left a lot of lacing on the glass. The body was a bright yellow color with moderate carbonation. The nose was filled with lots of fruit from the Citra hops. I picked up mango, pineapple, grapefruit flesh and grapefruit pith. There was a touch of malt at the end. The taste was the same as the nose. It was filled with citrus and tropical fruits. The most prevalent were the mango and grapefruit. Grass clippings and orange segments came through as well. The body was thick and chewy with moderate carbonation. It had a lengthy finish with citrus. I liked this beer, but I wish it was more than just an assault with hops.
