Schooner Exact 3 Grid IPA

CIMG7829

This is the flagship beer of Schooner Exact. I’ve had it on tap, but it’s made it’s way into bottles recently. Let’s give it a taste.

Stats:
American India Pale Ale. 6.7% ABV. 62 IBUs. Washington.

Burnt orange color with a fantastic head and just a beautiful ring of lacing on the glass.

The nose is really nice, too. Citrus and pine, as you would expect. I also get a pineapple play on there, as well.

Prickly carbonation and a low-medium carbonation. I’d like to see a bit more tooth.

More pine than fruit on the palate. Grainy mid-to-back. Considerable bitterness on the finish.

Not for the faint of heart. It’s a solid Washington example, if you are an IPA fan. 88 points.
