Brewery: Collective Arts (Hamilton)
Type: India Pale Ale
Appearance / Aroma: Bronze gorgeousness glowing below a nice frothy head. Really a treat to look at. Hazy and mystical looking. As close to no smell as I have ever smelled.
Taste / Feel: Low carbonation and a medium mouthfeel leaves some lacing in the mouth. It’s a tad bit creamy and smooth. Fees lovely a tangy bitterness is ever present- which is ok while drinking but it lingers on a bit long for me. The 6.8% is pretty evident. The alcohol sting is pretty strong. I’ve said too many negatives in a row- I think this is a good beer. It’s a very hoppy IPA. I look forward to seeing the IBU later I expect somewhere in the 60s at least. And for a beer in that ballpark with this kind of alcohol it pulls it off remarkably well. Citrus- Grapefruit? This is not my kind of beer but even at that I am enjoying it- and I think that’s pretty cool.
