Iron Springs Pub & Brewery Casey Jones Imperial IPA
Hello beer lovers and welcome to another edition of the NorCal Beer Blog's brew review.
Tonight’s featured beer is Iron Springs Pub & Brewery Casey Jones Imperial IPA.
From the Iron Springs Pub & Brewery website:” This double IPA has twice the hops and grains as its counterpart. Significant floral, citrus, and peppery notes on the nose, yet even with the enormous hop profile, the huge grain bill results in a very well balanced brew.”
Let’s get started!
Appearance: Pours a dark orange with a thick white head and very nice lacing.
Aroma: Huge hop aroma and just a wee bit of malt in the background.
Taste: Citrus hops flood in followed by a nice caramel malt aftertaste.
Overall: Iron Springs Pub & Brewery’s Casey Jones Imperial IPA is impressive and goes down easy, but at 9% ABV you need to watch out for this one as it’ll put you in your place. Great hop bitterness, balanced and one I would certainly try again.
