Cabin Brewing Company Misty Frequency – American IPA at 7% ABV | 60 IBU

Cabin Brewing Company Misty Frequency American IPA at 7% ABV | 60 IBU (C$5.31 at Collective, 473 ml, packaged on 31-Jul-2019, acquired 29-Aug-2019, reviewed 8-Sep-2019)

Appearance: hazy straw with two fingers of rocky white head, good retention and heavy soapy lacing. (4/5) Aroma: tropical fruit, citrus, vanilla, caramel, pine, oats. (7/10) Taste: moderate-high sweet, moderate-high bitter. (7/10) Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, juicy medium bitter finish. (4/5)

Not surprisingly, this pretty much splits the difference between their Sunshine Rain IPA and Super Saturation New England Pale. The flavour is definitely more emphatic than the APA, but it still feels lighter than the 7% ABV. Oddly, the brewer claims the same 60IBU as their straight IPA, but whereas that one felt more bitter than that rating would suggest, this feels less so. It’s still a bit on the bitter side for an NEIPA, but not to the point where I’d call it unbalanced or inappropriate. Pretty drinkable for a fairly beefy beer. (15/20)
