Twin Sails Brewing Front Lawn Bench Press – American Double / Imperial IPA at 7.9% ABV | 55 IBU

Twin Sails Brewing Front Lawn Bench Press – American Double / Imperial IPA at 7.9% ABV | 55 IBU (C$6.12 at Collective, 473 ml, no packaging date or best before, acquired 14-May-2020, reviewed 16-May-2020)

Appearance: opaque medium gold with one fat finger of fluffy pale ivory head diminishing rapidly to a thin ring, spotty lacing. (3/5) Aroma: tropical fruit, sweet lactose, melon, citrus, green pepper. (8/10) Taste: moderate-high bitter, moderate sweet, light tart. (8/10) Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, off-dry bitter finish. (4/5)

Ekuanot, Galaxy, & Citra? – oh, hells, yes. The interesting thing that jumps out as unique here is the green pepper, presumably from the Ekuanot, because, seriously, nothing else does that. I’m not really surprised at the overall result, because in my experience Twin Sails doesn’t know how to make a bad beer, but that green pepper note stands out as the most interesting aspect. There are certainly better beers out there, but this one is interesting, and that counts for a lot. (16/20)
