Stopped by the brewery to try the Kerplunk and noticed they released this new DIPA, so I got a growler to take home.
A - Pours almost 3 fingers of fluffy, off-white head. It has an excellent retention and leaves plenty of lacing on the sides of the glass. The beer is a murky dark orange color.
S - A well balanced aroma, there's definitely some earthy hops, but there's also some citrus and bready malts apparent. No one thing overpowers the other.
M - A medium-bodied beer with moderate carbonation. It has a creaminess to it, but also a slickness from the hops oil. It's heavy on hops, but not quite enough to destroy your palate.
T - A mixture of caramel and bready malts hit first. Next up are some citrusy hops followed by the earthy hops that finish the beer. It leaves a nice grapefruit bitterness on completion.
A pretty decent DIPA. It's well balanced and remains pretty drinkable. It's nothing out of this world, but is defiantly a good example of the style. This is my 3rd beer from Spring House and I really like what they are producing. Should be interesting to see what else they come out with in the future.
