River Horse has been putting out some new beers lately, so I had to pick them up. Since we live a few minutes away from River Horse, we tend to go to a lot of their events. We missed Cask Fest, but I’m sure we’ll be back there soon. Their event space is pretty large, so it never feels super crowded, which I also like. I just wish they had a bit more seating.
Style: American Double/Imperial IPA
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “New England style IPA brewed with Buddha’s Hand fruit and dry hopped with Mosaic, Citra, and Lemondrop hops. Left unfiltered, it has a hazy golden appearance and a delicate citrus nose. The Buddha’s Hand fruit lends big citrus notes complimented by the Citra and Lemondrop hops. Not overly sweet and not overly bitter, this is an extremely balanced, smooth and refreshing double IPA. ABV – 9%”
Random: The only malt used in this beer is Pilsen malt.
The beer poured with a one finger, white head. It dissipated quickly and left some lacing on the glass. The body was a hazy golden color with lots of carbonation visible. The nose was very fragrant with a lot of flowers and a touch of lemon as well. The taste was very lemony with lemon rind and flesh and some flowers as well. The body was on the thicker side with a lot of carbonation. The finish was quick with a lot of lemon. I thought this beer was alright, but it just needed a bit more flavor.
