Year of New Beer: Hop Jack IPA, Blackstone Brewing (TN)
Written By: Dion on 04/09/2019
You know it's a throwback to old school IPAs when you can see through it. Citrus peel and caramel malt forward, with traces of pine and herbal grasses. On the tongue, plenty of bread crust and caramel to provide a solid base for the grapefruit and orange zest along the middle. Finishes a little dry with a resinous, almost spicy hop bite. Nothing mind-blowing, but solid.
