Zero Issue Brewing Nemesis IPA (Issue 4) American IPA at 7.3% ABV | 74 IBU (C$9.50 at The Brewer’s Apprentice, 946 ml, packaged on 22-Oct-2017, acquired 22-Oct-2017, reviewed 23-Oct-2017)

Appearance: hazy medium gold with three fingers of loose pale ivory head diminishing gradually to a moderate cap, thin stringy lacing. (4/5) Aroma: citrus flesh, grainy malt, light floral and herbal. (8/10) Taste: moderate sweet, high bitter. (8/10) Palate: medium slightly oily body, moderate-soft carbonation, lingering building bitter slightly spicy finish. (4/5)

An NE-style juice bomb. I’m detecting somewhat low carbonation, likely due to this being a tap filled crowler. Other than that, a very respectable offering from an extremely new local brewery who is impressing me: I rated their first two offerings (Multiverse and Dystopia) at 7.5/10, but this is slightly better, even given the too-low carbonation. So, just for the record: they started off on the high end of “good” with their first two brews, and by the time they got to their fourth brew, they had crossed my personal bar for “world-class”. I don’t mind saying, I’m pretty jacked to see what they’re going to do next. (16/20)
