Time for another Westbrook beer. Let’s see how it was.
Style: American Double/Imperial IPA
Trivia: According to beerstreetjournal.com, “Westbrook Citrus Redacted is on the horizon by the Mt Pleasant, South Carolina based brewery. This new imperial IPA is described as being big on citrus hops, and citrus fruits. There are ninjas on the label, which makes us think of a Pipeworks beer – Citra Ninja. (Perhaps that’s the joke?) Thus…. ‘redacted’. This beer combines three of our favorite things: juicy fresh-squeezed hops, zesty and bright citrus fruits, and a name that doesn’t make any sense unless you know the story behind it. Enjoy! Westbrook Citrus Redacted will be available in 16-ounce bottles. The brewery has not officially announced this release.”
Random: There was no information about this beer on the brewery website.
The beer poured with a one finger, white head. It was loose and dissipated quickly. It left very little lacing on the glass. The body was cloudy and bright orange in color with some carbonation visible. The nose started with a lot of citrus, specifically orange segments, tangerines and clementines. The taste has slightly more depth than the nose. It started with citrus, specifically a lot of oranges and grapefruit. There was tangerine and clementine as well. A slight sweetness from the malt came through next. The alcohol was relatively well hidden. The body was on the light side for the style with less than necessary carbonation. The finish was quick with citrus. A can of this was $4.75, which came to $.30 per ounce. I thought the flavor of this beer was fine, but the pricetag of this made it lose major points in my book. I won’t be having this again.
