Great Rhythm Tropical Haze

Over the Summer, Val and I took a vacation to Portland and Boston. We made a stop for a late lunch in Portsmouth. We stopped at a seafood restaurant that was written up by Eater and everything there was ridiculously good, including the beer.

ABV: 6.8%

Style: American IPA

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Founded by Scott and Kristen Thornton in February of 2012, Great Rhythm Brewing Company is the result of an unwavering pursuit to create the most flavorfully hoppy beers for every occasion. While staying true to their active lifestyle and other passions in life, music and travel, Kristen and Scott set out to create a brewery that fosters the idea of living life to the fullest with great friends, great music and great craft beer.”

Random: Although the brewery is in Portsmouth, we didn’t have a chance to stop there.

The beer poured with a super thick, two finger, pure white head. It took forever to dissipate and left some lacing on the glass. The body was incredibly hazy, thus the name, with no carbonation visible. The nose was filled with melon. I picked up cantaloupe and honeydew and not much else. The taste was the same two notes of cantaloupe and honeydew along with a generous dose of grapefruit juice. There was some fresh peach as well. The body was on the lighter side of the style with moderate carbonation. It had a lengthy and sticky finish with melon. I really enjoyed this beer, especially paired with seafood. I would definitely have this one again.
