Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: wordemupg on 04-11-2012

In brewing Hobo we used a big amount of rye (29 %) and 10 % wheat, plus five different kinds of malted barley. We decided to use hops from America and New Zealand: we used Nelson Sauvin during FWH and in whirlpooling, while in the next two additions we used Amarillo and Cascade.

11.2oz botle poured into a pint glass
A: Hazy mahogany with a thin head
S: The best part of the beer. Noticeable pine/hop notes with a nice malty/caramel background
T: More disjointed than the nose. The malts come through but a bit seeet; the hops take the back burner and aren't showcased at all
M: Medium-bodied and slightly sweet
O: If the taste matched the nose this would be quite good, unfortunately everything is muddled

On-tap. Shaker glass @ Freiburg (Barcelona). Amber color, chill haze appearance. Headed by yellowish, creamy & lasting crown. Lacing rings & spots are left. Candy, caramel & mild toasted malt aromas, hints of ripe apple. Sharp resinous bitterness at first sip based on sticky toasted malt backbone. Medium to full body. Soft carbonation. Unctuous & Oily texture. Spicy & driedpalate. Citrics & resins in the middle linger into a heavy & long bitter finish. Refreshing & easy drinkable.

11.2oz bottle from Northbridge Piggly Wiggly on deep discount... Poured into a tulip glass.

A: Dark; maybe a little too dark for an IPA; thick, creamy head of ecru foam... nice retention and lace.

S: Toasted malt; faint citrus.

T: Toasted malt (again); bread crust; a touch wheaty; not a lot of hop bitterness - citrus pith, perhaps.

M: Medium-full feel; lower carbonation; almost feels murky (like its appearance).

O: OK.

330ml bottle served in a pint glass.

A: Pours a dark amber color forming a small creamy tan head that dissipates quickly leaving only few lacings in the glass

S: Strong notes of caramel malts. Roasted malts and flowery, grassy and a bit earthy hops

T: Slightly sweet upfront. Caramel, caramel malts. Good hops bitterness. Hops are citrus and earthy. In overall, a dry and smooth taste. Balanced

M: Light to medium body. Good carbonation. Caramel malts and flowery hops aftertaste

O: Decent and drinkable but difficult to call it an IPA. It's more for over hopped British bitter

A- Dark Amber, maybe a bit orange. Head thin and white. It lasts well and leaves some lacing.
S- The aroma is quite mild for an IPA. Earthy, herbal, and a bit of citrus. But all around muted.
T- Balanced, in fact a bit too balanced since I thought it would be a bit bigger of an IPA than it was. There is a bit of sweet, pale malt. Hops bring an earthy, herbal, green flavor.
M- Decent body to it. Carbonation is a bit too high.
O- It's an ok beer, but a mediocre IPA. It is essentially a balanced English pale or a slightly hoppy amber.
