Spring House Robot Bastard!
Another beer I ordered at the Spring House Tap Room was the Robot Bastard! The beer pours a translucent orange-amber color with a frothy white head. The aroma consists of pepper, banana, Belgian yeast, and orange peel. The taste is sweet and smooth with lots of banana, orange, and yeast. The finish brings out pepper, spices, and thyme. The alcohol content is 7.0% ABV. The Robot Bastard! is a wonderful example of a Belgian IPA and balances the sweetness and spiciness nicely. The thyme finish was quite memorable and sets this beer apart from other Belgian IPAs.
