Well, let’s review another beer from Flying Fish Brewing Company. This time, it’s their Hopfish IPA.
This IPA has a nice average head size that is foamy, and white in color. The duration of the head was short and the carbonation was soft. The body color is a nice gold and the body clarity has a slight haze to it. This beer looks good in the glass.
The aroma of this IPA has a pleasant, strong hop bouquet that is floral and has hints of grapefruit too. There is also a sweetness in the smell. Now, onto the taste. There is a wonderful bitterness that hits you right up front and it lasts throughout the sip. I get citrus notes, and some floral ones that contribute to a bitterness that stays on your palate. It is a welcomed experience that has you wanting more. I also detect some caramel and toasted notes from the malts. My advice is to be prepared to follow your first Hopfish with a second…..and possibly a third.
ABV = 6.2%
