Cabin Brewing Company Evening Chorus – American IPA at 7% ABV (C$5.08 at Collective, 473 ml, packaged on 1-Dec-2021, acquired 23-Dec-2021, reviewed 5-Jan-2022)
Appearance: opaque hazy pale gold with a short fine pale ivory head diminishing gradually to a thin cap, moderate soapy lacing. (4/5) Aroma: juicy citrus, tropical fruit, cereal grains. (8/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate-low bitter. (8/10) Palate: soft medium body, moderate carbonation, short duration finish. (4/5)
The label says this is “NZ-hopped”, and brewer notes specify Motueka, Rakau, and Nelson Sauvin hops – oh my, yes. And, yep, it delivers exactly what I’d expect for those hops: lots of brightly juicy citrus and tropical fruit notes, on a clean malt background. Also, the ABV is right about the sweet spot: above “training wheels”, but below “on your ass”. I really like this one. (16/20)
This will be my 5,176th unique Untappd check-in.
