Three Skulls Hop the Plank IPA

CIMG3530

I believe this is the third Three Skulls beer that I’ve had. Apparently, Three Skulls is pretty much Baron Brewing. BA states that it has the same brewer and it’s brewed in the same location as Baron, but are separate breweries. Yeah, got me. Website doesn’t say anything about what’s in the beer.

Stats:
American India Pale Ale. 7.0% ABV. Washington.

Orange color with a lot of sediment.

Orange and cardboard come to mind on the nose. There’s hops here, but they don’t smell very good. Smells very artificial.

Mouthfeel is way, way, way too light.

Palate is orange-y again with a very light hop presence. Not a lot going on here, and the finish is terrible.

This isn’t very good. Stay far away from this beer. Just trust me. 75 points.

    Great review. I love the label, but if the beer sucks, it’s not worth it!

    Nice brew review. I really like the label, but if the beer sucks, totally not worth it.

    Never tried this beer or anything from them .. but I’ll be in Washington on Thursday so if I see it, I’ll give it a try and see what I think!

    Thanks for the review!
