Beer Style: IPA
Brewery: McGargles (Rye River Brewing)
Serving Methodology: 11.2 oz bottle poured into two pint glasses
Country of Origin: Irish Republic
Taste & Aroma: I smell piney hops! That’s a good sign. The taste here is more piney and malty than it is hoppy. I’m not tasting the IPA flavors I am used to tasting. This doesn’t feel like an English IPA, A West Coast IPA, or any IPA I have tasted. This is mellow.
Amanda’s Thoughts: Mellow IPA that I can drink
Final Analysis: My favorites of these four beers were the lager and the pale ale. I cannot say this is an IPA I’d have again. It is contrary to what I expect from an IPA. If you are like my wife, you may like this beer.
