Troubled Monk Brewery Buzzword IPA – American IPA at 6.7% ABV | 61 IBU (C$4.27 at Collective, 473 ml, packaged on 12-Dec-2021, acquired 23-Dec-2021, reviewed 27-Dec-2021)
Appearance: clear medium gold with one fat finger of rocky near-white head, good retention and moderate spotty lacing. (4/5) Aroma: sweet tropical fruit, citrus, resiny pine, floral/herbal, cereal grains, honey. (7/10) Taste: moderate-high sweet, moderate-high bitter. (7/10) Palate: medium body, moderate-lively carbonation, sweetish medium duration bitter finish. (3/5)
The aroma is a bit muddled, with tropical and berry sweetness over herbal and pine, malt coming through as cereal grains and honey. And yes, I am getting about three different types of sweetness, so needless to say this is far too sweet in my opinion. It might be a bit harsh to call this mediocre, but it sure isn’t great. (14/20)
This will be my 5,170th unique Untappd check-in.
