Matchless Brewing What Day Is It? – American IPA at 6.2% ABV (C$5.35 at Collective, 473 ml, packaged on 10-May-2021, acquired 3-Sep-2021, reviewed 16-Sep-2021)
Appearance: hazy/opaque medium gold with one fat finger of fine pale ivory head, good retention and spotty lacing. (4/5) Aroma: tropical fruit, citrus, pine, cereal grains. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (8/10) Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, off-dry medium duration finish. (4/5)
I might not know what day it is, but I know what time it is: beer o’clock. I’m probably not being entirely fair to this one, because it’s been in the can for a while and might well have faded. It’s still not bad, though, and definitely better than its more aggressive DIPA brother (Brave Wizard) that I had a couple of days ago. Hopped with Idaho 7, Topaz, Chinook, and El Dorado, and for the most part that’s the profile Im getting. In fact, it actually tastes a bit better than it smells, and might be pretty stonking good fresh on tap – note to self, next time I’m in Tumwater… (What? I’ve got a friend who’s in the process of moving to Vancouver. Coastal trips might start to happen, if fucking COVID ever fucks off.) (15/20)
This will be my 5,061st unique Untappd check-in.
