Brau Brothers Sheephead Ale

CIMG7195

Here’s another beer from Minnesota’s Brau Brothers. This one is an IPA with “loads of caramel malts and too many Cascade hops.”

Stats:
American India Pale Ale. 7.7% ABV. Minnesota.

Caramel color, not much head on this IPA.

Hoppy nose with a little bit of grapefruit and pine. Definitely some malt caramel coming through as well.

Mouthfeel is solid. Medium body, medium carbonation.

Hoppy up front with grapefruit and pine, but quite a bit of caramel and an earthy-almost dirt like flavor on the mid, with considerable bitterness on the finish.

I prefer more of a West Coast style IPA, but not too shabby. 86 points.
