Over the past year, I have been developing an ale that started out as a big, citrus IPA. Overtime I kept dialing back the amount of bitterness and the IBU’s until I found a really nice balance. This is my second time brewing this beer exactly the same way, and it has turned out to be a homerun. Easy drinking, and everyone keeps refilling their glasses. Try it out! Cheers
Here is the review:
Appearance: a clear orange brown with a few hop particles floating around.
nose: The galaxy citrus aroma shines through with hints of melon and grapefruit. There is a malt sweetness underneath the floral characteristics that reminds me of biscuits and toasted bread.
Flavor: A mild but assertive hop bitterness that finishes easily, but with a noticeable hop finish. Very easy to drink
mouth feel: Medium bodied and a very balanced experience
overall: This tastes like it came from a brewery! looking forward to entering it into a competition in the future. 9/10
