Marda Loop Brewing Co. The Big Juice – American IPA at 5.8% ABV

Marda Loop Brewing Co. The Big Juice – American IPA at 5.8% ABV (C$4.18 at Collective, 473 ml, packaged on 24-Mar-2021, acquired 23-Apr-2021, reviewed 30-Apr-2021)

Appearance: slightly hazy medium gold with two fat fingers of rocky pale ivory head, good retention and well-defined soapy lacing. (4/5) Aroma: pineapple/tropical, apple/pome, citrus, caramel, grass, light pine. (7/10) Taste: moderate-high sweet, moderate bitter. (7/10) Palate: medium body, moderate-lively carbonation, sweetish medium duration finish. (3/5)

Not bad, but sweeter than I’d prefer. The fruit aroma is decent, but translates through to a somewhat sweet mid and a slightly sticky finish, preventing it from being as clean and refreshing as I’d like. Ultimately it’s juicy, but not brightly so. (14/20)
