Snoqualmie Plant 1 Powerhouse IPA

CIMG4247

This is a recent release from one of my favorite Washington breweries. It’s named after the power plant at Snoqualmie Falls.

Stats:
American India Pale Ale. 7.5% ABV. 85 IBUs. Washington. Spring Release.

Orange, not as coppery as most. Head is decent, but it leaves fantastic lacing.

The nose has a nice malt and hop profile. It’s got a bit of grain and a nice citrus, piney hop profile. I’m getting this cigar component that I like quite a bit, but a bit of diacetyl does come through.

Mouthfeel is perfect, it borders on full body, with a nice level of carbonation.

Heavy pine, a little bit of citrus, lovely grain. Diacetyl does make an appearance, but it’s not obnoxious. Good all around flavor with good length, as well.

This is just your classic PNW IPA. It’s a bit aggressive, but doesn’t knock out the malt. It’s got flavor to fill the palate, and length to keep the flavor there, all while still being well-balanced. It’s really not all that bitter. Just a solid brew. 88 points.
