Laurelwood Workhorse IPA

CIMG5226

In case you havn’t had enough IPAs from Oregon, here’s another. This Portland native features 2-row, C-40, and Carapils malts, with Simcoe, Amarillo, Cascade, Columbus, and Nugget hops. Let’s see how it tastes.

Stats:
American India Pale Ale. 7.5% ABV. 80 IBUs. Oregon.

Orange color with a fluffy head that has now subsided, leaving a nice half inch ring of lacing on the glass.

Quite a citrusy and tropical fruit nose with just a hint of pine. I almost thought fruit was added to this beer, because it’s got this amazing apricot and mango aroma.

Mouthfeel is on the high side of medium body with a bit of carbonation, making it crisp.

Just a ton of tropical fruit with mango and pineapple coming through. A hint of pine and diacetyl and a slight tartness to this beer. Long length with a hoppy pine and vanilla flavor.

This is nothing but a solid, delicious beer. If you are a fan of the Bridgeport IPA, this is up your alley. Low bitterness with a fruity profile will make this a pleasure for a lot of people, but can still get the west coast hop heads something to talk about. Yum. 90 points.
