Beer Tasting: Barley Creek Brewing Co. - Super Hop IPA
Barley Creek Brewing Co. - Super Hop IPA Have you tasted this beer? Let us know what you think. As a suggestion, try to keep it to as few as words as possible for each of the following: appearance; smell; taste; mouthfeel; and drinkability. Appearance Bryan: Holy frothy hophead! Just see the picture! Medium copper-colored over-charged beer that took forever to pour. Smell Bryan: mild citrus aroma Taste Bryan: moderate malt flavor with pleasant hop tastes without being overpowering Mouthfeel Bryan: moderate body Drinkability Bryan: moderate malt, moderate body, moderately higher level of hops. However, not a great beer. Missing what?........stronger malt backbone? maybe. Seconds? Bryan: Yes, slightly better-than-average IPA.
