BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Perrin Brewery
Michigan, United States
perrinbrewing.com

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.50%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Perrin IPA accomplishes the nearly impossible feat of balancing a sweet malty backbone along with a blend of west coast hops, along with Michigan Cascade hops. Which creates a crisp bitterness and imparts massive floral and citrus aromas. This is how an IPA should taste!

One of the better Perrin choices. Very pleased with this IPA. All the very classic notes of the Pacific North West. Pick a hop, any hop that starts with “C” and you have this beer. Good and easy, have another? Yes please. Have something exceptional to review, probably not.
A bit cloudy but nice color. The nose says yes and citrus and pine will have your tongue agree. Lacked a tiny bit of head, but I blame this on the glass or what it was washed with. This beer hangs nicely up front of class with other good American IPA’s telling stories of summer break.

Very nice IPA. Good nose, good mix of bitter and floral hoppiness.

$ 13.13 (Including tax)/sixpack of 12 oz cans ($ 0.182/oz) at Meijers, Wyoming, MI.
Can dated 080917. Stored in store cooler and at 42 degrees in my reefer and served at 42 degrees in a hand washed and dried Jester King snifter.
Aroma – Citrus and a hint of pine. Weakens to just citrus with time.
Head – Large (Maximum 4.4 cm, aggressive pour), off white, medium density, average retention, diminishing to a lacy 10 to 18 mm ring fed by effervescence and a thin complete layer with thicker islands.
Lacing – Excellent! A wide band of tiny to small bubbles covers the inside of the glass. As the level drops, rings connected by columns appear.
Body – Orange, opaque, effervescent.
Flavor – Well balanced malt and hops allows both to come through but neither really rule. Some citrus remains. Lightly bitter with bitterness being the only after taste. No alcohol, no diacetyl.
Palate – medium, watery, lively carbonation.
Impression: An excellent IPA, malty and refreshing. I had to force myself to save one from the sixer to review – the rest went down fast.
Appearance 4.5, Aroma 4.25, Flavor 4.5, Palate 4.5, Overall 4.5

12oz can, date stamped 08/24/17
Hazy copper-y colored ale with a thin layer of beige foam. Pine and citrus with some grain and caramel for aroma - a little bit of honey, pineapple and mango as it warms. More tropical hop in flavor with grapefruit & orange citrus, mango, pine, and pineapple; honey and caramel notes add sweetness. Medium body, pleasant carbonation, finishing moderately bitter and dry with pine and white pepper lingering. Overall, solid IPA here. I'd drink it again & I'll have to try more from this brewery.

Tasted in a Spiegelau IPA glass from a 12 oz can on September 7, 2017. A good balance of hop bitterness and malt sweetness. It is well made but it is nothing special.
