Inner City Brewing Big City Series Lights of the City – American Double / Imperial IPA at 7.5% ABV

Inner City Brewing Big City Series Lights of the City – American Double / Imperial IPA at 7.5% ABV (C$9.89 at Collective, 650 ml, no packaging date or best before, acquired 9-Jan-2020, reviewed 9-Jan-2020)

Appearance: clear medium gold with a short fluffy off-white head, good retention and moderate creamy lacing. (4/5) Aroma: caramel, toasted bread, tropical fruit, citrus, pine. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, high bitter. (7/10) Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, lingering bitter mildly warming finish. (3/5)

A somewhat old-fashioned DIPA, malt heavy if not completely dominated. I might be scoring this just a touch generously, but there’s nothing actually wrong with it other than being about 10 years out of date. (14/20)

7/10 #ryansbooze ryansbooze.com
