Brew Review #18

IMG_4080

Mammoth Brewing Co. IPA 395 (DIPA)

Bottled. No Date. ABV 8% IBUs 70

Color: Hazy, Half Finger Head, Amber, Red

Smell: Malt, Herb, Earth

Taste: Sage, Sweet, Toffee, Hazelnut

Aftermath: Dessert Cake (but not sweet)

Experience: This IPA has been brewed with juniper berries and sage. I was having a hard time identifying one thing on the nose and one thing on the taste. I don’t know what a juniper berry taste like so could be that. This makes me want to explore my pallet outside of beer so I can better relate what I smell and taste to other foods. Early this week I reviewed the Epic IPA and I liked that one overall better than this one. A lot of flavor in this IPA that I need to develop and appreciate. Grade 4/5.
