When Val and I were in the Boston area, we stopped at a few breweries, one of them being Exhibit ‘A’. It was outside of the city and basically empty. They had an outside area, which it was a bit too hot to be in and the indoor bar which was dark and empty. We decided to grab some beer to go instead of having a beer there. This is what we brought home.
Style: American Double/Imperial IPA
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Big citrus peel hop aroma greets your nose followed by flavors of citrus zest, grapefruit and hints of mango and peaches. Hop bitterness is balanced by sweet malt with a smooth, full mouthfeel.”
Random: This is a year-round offering from Exhibit ‘A.’
The beer poured with a one finger, pure white head. The head took awhile to go away and left a lot of lacing on the glass. The body was bright yellow in color and very cloudy. There was no carbonation visible as a result. The nose was filled with tropical fruit. I picked up mango, kiwi and pineapple. There was some passionfruit as well. The taste was even more fruity and upfront. I got the same mango, kiwi and pineapple along with oranges. There was a touch of grass at the end of the sip. There was a touch of alcohol, but it wasn’t overwhelming. The body was on the thicker side with moderate carbonation. The finish was lengthy with tropical fruit. I thought this beer was exceptional and would definitely have it again.
