LIC Beer Project Higher Burnin’

A few months ago, I started see LIC Beer Project cans on the shelves of Cranbury Buy Rite. I decided to give their IPA a try.

ABV: 7%

Style: American IPA

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “LIC Beer Project is a collaborative journey of insight, experience, travel, education, and the goal to achieve a beer we have yet to discover. Here at LIC Beer Project we will assert integrity of purpose and imaginative vision against the slaves of the ordinary. Join the odyssey……”

Random: At least their can art is pretty.

The beer poured with a half a finger of wispy, white head. It dissipated quickly and left very little lacing on the glass. The body was opaque and looked a lot like orange juice. I could not see any carbonation through it. The nose had a lot of fruit on it. I picked up mango, pineapple, grapefruit and apricot. The taste was not nearly as good as the nose. I picked up some disjointed notes of mango and pineapple up front with some mint and a weird malt note. It distracted from the fruit. After a few sips, the apricot came through next. The alcohol was also overly apparent for the ABV. The body was on the medium side with moderate carbonation. It was a lengthy, fruity finish with the malt bite at the end. A pounder can of this was $4, which came to $.25 per ounce. This wasn’t the best introduction to the brewery and I wouldn’t rush to have it again.
