R & B Brewing Company Hipster Haze – American IPA at 6.4% ABV | 40 IBU

R & B Brewing Company Hipster Haze – American IPA at 6.4% ABV | 40 IBU (C$4.50 at Collective, 473 ml, packaged on 10-Mar-2021, acquired 23-Apr-2021, reviewed 4-May-2021)

Appearance: hazy pale gold with two fat fingers of rocky off-white head, excellent retention and heavy soapy lacing. (4/5) Aroma: tropical fruit, caramel & cereal grains, resiny pine. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate-high bitter. (6/10) Palate: medium slightly creamy body, moderate-soft carbonation, lingering building bitter finish. (3/5)

That’s a bit on the nose, innit? (And for the record, I’ve shaved off my beard, and never had a nose ring or gauged ears.) Not bad, but a bit muddled, with a slightly unbalanced lingering bitterness. I get the impression they’re trying to blend NE and WC styles, but it’s not a complete success. (14/20)
