Maui Brewing Company Lorenzini Double IPA
Hello beer lovers and welcome to another edition of the NorCal Beer Blog's brew review.
Tonight’s featured beer is Maui Brewing Company Lorenzini Double IPA.
From the Maui Brewing Company website: “A special beer for a special cause. The name comes from the sharks “Ampullae of Lorenzini”, the shark’s electro sensory organ used to detect changes in electric fields. This American Double IPA was brewed with blood orange, local citrus, and Maui cane sugar. The unique hop profile of Azacca, El Dorado, and Sorachi Ace lend big grapefruit, ripe mango and tropical aromas, followed by a clean, mildly sweet bitterness. This is a deceptively drinkable Double IPA.”
Let’s get started!
Appearance: Pours a hazy bronze color with a frothy cream colored head leaving some lacing.
Aroma: Lots of citrus, oranges, some tangerine and grapefruit, pine, caramel and pale malts.
Taste: Blood orange, tangerine and other citrus flavors, caramel and pale malts, mango and slight sweetness that must be coming from the Maui cane sugar.
Overall: Easy drinking, Maui Brewing Company Lorenzini Double IPA is tasty. I’m glad I got to try this 7.6% ABV offering. Worth a try for fans of the style.
