Parallel 49 Cobra Clutch – American Double / Imperial IPA at 8% ABV

Parallel 49 Cobra Clutch American Double / Imperial IPA at 8% ABV (C$4.00 at Collective, 473 ml, packaged on 19-Aug-2019, acquired 22-Sep-2019, reviewed 3-Oct-2019)

Appearance: hazy medium gold with one finger of creamy pale ivory head, good retention and spotty lacing. (3/5) Aroma: brown apples, tropical fruit, caramel, citrus, resiny pine. (6/10) Taste: moderate-high sweet, moderate-high bitter. (7/10) Palate: medium body, moderate-soft carbonation, sticky lingering bitter and warming finish. (3/5)

Well, this is a rude return to reality after a few Tree House and Trillium beers… An aroma dominated by brown apples and a tendency to excess sweetness are not exactly recipes for success in my book. Unremarkable. (13/20)

6.5/10 #ryansbooze ryansbooze.com
