Greensport Otherside IPA

Posted: November 25, 2015 in American IPA, La Birreria, Reviews

As you probably know by now, I’m a huge Eagles fan. This year has just been difficult to watch. With so much hype behind the hurry-up offense, it seems like every team has us figured out and this experiment just isn’t working. I wonder if they keep Chip Kelly next year. Anyways, let’s talk about this beer. It’s the first beer that I’ve had from the brewery and I know next to nothing about them. Let’s see how it was.

ABV: 7.5%

Style: American IPA

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “A blend of North American pale, light Munich, light crystal, and carapils malts provide a light malty backbone to balance healthy kettle and dry-hops additions of Cascade, Centennial, and Columbus. Hoppy yet balanced, our latest Project Hoppiness offering is our nod to the beers we love from the other coast. ‘Winner of the Brooklyn Mystery IPA Challenge’ (7.5% ABV) -available year round.”

Random: I also feel like we are getting a lot more penalties this year.

This beer poured with a ridiculously large, four finger, white head. It dissipated slowly and left lots of spiderweb lacing on the glass. The body was a clear, dark yellow color with moderate carbonation. The nose had grapefruit zest, grass and light pine. The taste was much more dank and piney than the nose. But, it tasted like old pine that quickly went into malty, caramel sweetness. The body was medium thick with light carbonation. It had a very sweet finish with bread and caramel malt. This was $2.49 for the single bottle ($.21 per ounce). This beer was drinkable, but it just tasted old and I wouldn’t be interested in having a second one.
