Brew Review #58

IMG_4782

Oskar Blues Brewery IPA 

Canned on 4/25/17 (reviewed on 8/30/17). ABV 6.43%

Appearance: Slight Hazy (Cloudy), Gold (Straw). Half finger of thin white soapy head.

Aroma: Pineapple, Citrus, Earthy

Palate: Slight Pineapple, Citrus, Slight Malt

Finish: Orange Peel, Dry Mouth

Experience: I totally judged this beer before I had it. I thought it was going to be all malt and a disappointment. I was completely wrong. I was super pleased by this beer and all the characteristics that beer had to offer. Even after this beer being four months old had so much punch in flavor. I have learned more about “old” IPAs and the dating process. I do not think I will let beer dates on a bottle or can (if it is an IPA) affect my purchase decision. Grade 4.6/5.
