IPA Review 3-5

IPA #3: Samuel Smith’s English IPA

Date consumed: 12/14/14

  • 5% ABV
  • comes in a bomber only
  • deep taste of grain/sweetness
  • smooth, no crispness or citrus

IPA #4: Avery  (on draft at Bogey’s pub)

Date consumed: 12/15/14

  • crisp and hoppy, bitter
  • carbonation bites the tongue
  • refreshing–more refreshing on tap than bottled/canned, as I recall

IPA #5: Ranger ranger-ipa

Date consumed: 12/16/14

  • in a can: very crisp, bitter
  • by New Belgium brewery
  • not much citrus, more hops than anything else
  • very fizzy but doesn’t bite
  • refreshing when very cold–when it warms up to room temp, the bitterness becomes unpleasant
