Saint Archer Brewing Company IPA
Hello beer lovers and welcome to another edition of the NorCal Beer Blog's brew review.
Tonight’s featured beer is Saint Archer Brewing Company IPA. I picked this bottle up at The Wine Club in San Jose (here). They have a small craft beer section, but they have an incredible selection. If you're anywhere near The Wine Club go visit them and tell 'em I sent you!
From the Saint Archer Brewing Company website: “Everything you’d expect from a great American IPA: Hop-forward, yet civilized. Bitter but balanced. Cascade hops ring loud and clear with citrus/pine notes and are backed up by a chorus of our other favorites - Apollo, Centennial, Chinook, Columbus, Crystal, and Simcoe.”
Let’s get started!
Appearance: Pours clear gold with a nice ivory colored head and great lacing.
Aroma: Pine, citrus and floral hops with a very slight malt presence in the nose.
Taste: Pine, citrus and grassy hops, biscuit and caramel malts.
Overall: Crisp and tasty, Saint Archer Brewing Company IPA was very delicious. This 7% ABV offering will probably make another appearance in my beer fridge. I really enjoyed it!
