Garrison Brewing Company Hop Trip – American IPA at 6.2% ABV | 30 IBU

Garrison Brewing Company Hop Trip – American IPA at 6.2% ABV | 30 IBU (C$2.92 at Collective, 355 ml, packaged on 31-Oct-2019, acquired 29-Nov-2019, reviewed 4-Dec-2019)

Appearance: hazy and particulate-laden medium amber with two fingers of fluffy pale ivory head, excellent retention and moderate chunky lacing. (3/5) Aroma: pine, tropical fruits, citrus, caramel. (8/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (7/10) Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, medium duration bitter slightly astringent finish. (3/5)

Label says Mosaic & Citra, and that’s pretty much what I’m getting on the nose, with a pleasant blend of pine, tropical fruit, and citrus on a caramel base. The taste initially follows suit, with balanced sweetness and bitterness, but unfortunately turns slightly astringent in the finish. Not bad, but  (13/20)

6.5/10 #ryansbooze ryansbooze.com
