Evil Twin Brewing No Snowflake Ever Falls In the Wrong Place (Erase & Rewind No. 29) American IPA at 7% ABV (C$7.74 at Collective, 473 ml, no packaging date or best before, acquired 12-Apr-2019, reviewed 8-May-2019)

Appearance: slightly hazy medium gold with one fat fingers of rocky pale ivory head, good retention and moderate soapy lacing. (4/5) Aroma: citrus, tropical & stone fruit, caramel, resiny pine, light herbal, hint of lactose. (8/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (8/10) Palate: medium body, moderate-high carbonation, off-dry moderate bitter finish. (4/5)

I’m not sure whether tor not this is supposed to be an NEIPA – if it is, it’s a fairly bitter and relatively un-hazy version. That being said, it’s definitely more about the aroma than a heavy, tongue-coating bitter, so, sure, call it an NEIPA if you like. The aroma is reasonably complex while remaining approachable, and the slightly higher carbonation keeps it feeling light despite the solid ABV. Refreshing and enjoyable, all in all. (16/20)
