Slackwater Brewing Intruder – American IPA at 6% ABV | 62 IBU (C$5.00 at Collective, 473 ml, packaged on 28-Dec-2022, acquired 9-Mar-2023, reviewed 13-Mar-2023)
Appearance: clear pale amber with one finger of loose pale ivory head diminishing rapidly to a thin skim, moderate soapy lacing. (3/5) Aroma: juicy citrus, caramel, hints of grassy hay & pine. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, high bitter. (8/10) Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, off-dry lingering bitter finish. (4/5)
“With Idaho 7 and Citra hops.” I’m seeing more and more returns to tradition like this one, which stops just short of being crystal clear (well, after the slight chill haze dissipated) and possessing of a very non-NE bitterness. Of course, although Citra has been around since 2007, Idaho 7 is considerably newer, dating from 2015, and so the hopping is most certainly not “traditional”. Good, but I’d’ve preferred a more aggressive aroma profile. (15/20)
This will be my 5,516th unique Untappd check-in.
