Beer Review #61: Firestone Union Jack IPA

Style: American IPA

Menu description: Lots of sweet fruits, mainly grapefruit, hint of almonds. Typical IPA bitterness.

ABV: 7.5%

Tasting notes: Moderate scent with hoppy floral notes. Much lighter body than is typical of an IPA, which immediately grabs your attention. It’s a very dry beer. Good, but pretty basic. This is a little too bland for my tastes and the dryness doesn’t help.

Rating: 3/5

Beer Review #37: Barrage The Goddess

Style: Berliner weiss sour.

ABV: 3.2%

My thoughts: First, let me say WTF at this ABV. Is this even beer? It certainly smells pretty fucking sour. Well, it’s mouth puckeringly sour. So… Yeah… There’s almost something sweet when you first sip it, but it’s gone so quick I am not sure if I’m imaging it. The rest is just the sour of a fruit that’s gone bad. Strong carbonation. It’s quite dry. The finish is, as one might expect, more sour, but at least it vanishes quickly. I white girl can’t even with this.
