I had a long wait between planes at the Philadelphia Airport, an excellent excuse for a couple IPAs at the Jet Rock Bar & Grill. This bar has a large selection on tap, including one of my favorites, Victory's Hop Devil, so I thought I'd try this rye IPA to see how it compared with Hop Devil. Drinking a Philly IPA in PHL seemed real PC.
Poured a big head. Bartender took a while to pour foam off to tame my glass. Foam dense, long lasting, made good rich scummy lace the way I love it.
Color is hazy brownish amber, the haze murkier than just chill haze, with a yeast beast that flipped up from glass bottom after something like five minutes when high carbonation floated it.
Smell of sweet yeast buns, hops not as dominant as I like them in IPA style.
Taste real molasses malty yeasty sweet, not balanced by enough hops for an IPA, though aftertaste brought out some hop echo. Hop character was too simply piney, needed more variety to balance maltiness. I was drinking in a "Rock" bar, so thought of the need for more notes in the chord. Mouth feel nice and thick and chewy, one of the best things about it.
Wouldn't want more than one of these when Hop Devil is available. For a while I had two glasses to compare from and much preferred the devilishly complex hops in Victory's IPA to this too-simple Dock St rye brew.
Still, if Hop Devil weren't available, I'd drink more of this next time I'm in Philly.
