Lincoln Abbey Lincoln IPA

The beer pours an amber color with a lofty and frothy off-white colored that leaves specks of lacing on the glass on the way down. It’s not quite like Dogfish Head’s 60 Minute IPA, but what is? The aroma consists of fresh hops, orange, tangerine, grapefruit, passion fruit, lemon, and pepper. The taste is smooth with a caramel and toasted toffee flavor before the bitter hops hit the tongue. There are citrus flavors including tangerine, orange, grapefruit, and lemon that attack the tongue with a hint of passion fruit. On the finish, pepper and pine can be found on the back of the tongue. The alcohol content is 6.0% ABV. I was absolutely impressed with my IPA offering and I thought it was quite hoppy but had a nice sweet backbone that many people would enjoy. I look to brew this again in the future.
