When we drive back from DC, there’s a Total Wine that’s in Maryland that has a ridiculous selection. I try to pick up beers that I can’t find in Jersey, with this being one.
Style: American Double/Imperial IPA
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Proudly Brewed in Baltimore
Oliver Breweries was born in 1993 in the basement of a brewpub in downtown Baltimore. The original brewing equipment was brought over from the U.K. with the aim of creating authentic English ales. Since then, we’ve created hundreds of beers, listened to thousands of hours of ear-piercing metal, and made more beer-loving friends than we can count. With our new brewery, we’re ready to bring Oliver Brewing Co. to the masses. But no matter how big we get, we’ll always stay true to our roots.”
Random: This beer uses Mosaic and Simcoe hops.
The beer poured with a one finger head that was loose and dissipated rather quickly. It left limited lacing on the glass. The body was slightly cloudy and a bright orange with moderate carbonation visible. The nose had some mango and pine along with a touch of citrus. The taste had a lot of citrus, specifically grapefruit, along with pine and mango. There was also some sweet malt. The body was on the medium side with moderate carbonation. It had a lengthy finish with citrus. I picked this beer up on our way back from DC, so I don’t recall how much it was, but this was just a middle of the road beer. I wouldn’t rush back to it again.
