Mikkeller Blow Out Dry Hop IPA – American IPA at 6% ABV

Mikkeller Blow Out Dry Hop IPA American IPA at 6% ABV (C$6.30 at Collective, 330 ml, best before 3-Apr-2020, acquired 29-Aug-2019, reviewed 6-Sep-2019)

Appearance: slightly hazy pale gold with two fingers of rocky white head, good retention and well-defined soapy lacing. (5/5) Aroma: citrus, grass, pale malt, pine. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate-high bitter. (8/10) Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, lingering bitter slightly spicy finish. (4/5)

It’s pretty straightforward, and nothing really stands out as being particularly memorable, but it’s solid. You know it’s a pretty heavily populated style when even a Mikkeller brew doesn’t stand out – but then again, given how much he produces, he could saturate a style all by himself… (16/20)
