At The Office, in Morristown, NJ. At first blush, you are probably saying, 'Ramstein...IPA??? What's a German beer style specialist doing brewing this beer?' Well, this beer is actually the winning brew in this year's Office Homebrewers competition, but since it was brewed on contract with High Point and is now on tap in every Office location with a Ramstein taphandle, I figured I'd give it a review, with the hopes of High Point brewing it again.

Into a pint glass, it poured a cloudy amber/copper, with one finger of white head, that retained seemingly forever, and laced very well. Very little visible carbonation. I am not sure, but the nose definitely smelled of dry-hoppiness, with a pungent dry herbal aroma, in addition to orange peel, apple and pear. The taste revealed the aforementioned fruit initially, and then dissolved to a bitter orange peel, very dry finish. Medium thickness, and WAY smooth; no carbonation felt whatsoever, and very creamy'ish. I forgot to ask what the abv was on this beer, but whatever it was, it was well-hidden, and super-drinkable. A great session ipa. Hopefully High Point continues to branch out into more beer styles outside the German umbrella, if they are going to make them this good.
