Maker: Greenbush, Sawyer, Michigan, USA
Style: Black IPA
Purchased for $11 for a 6 pack.
Appearance: Dark coffee, lacy, light colored head.
Nose: Grapefruit, lavender, coriander, toasted brown bread.
Palate: Sweet and spicy. Black pepper, coffee, hint of chipotle.
Finish: Mildly sweet and more dry hoppy spice. Black cherry, then a bit roasty bitterness.
Parting words: I’ll admit to being a man who got sick of IPAs. The IPA madness seems to have died down about so I came out of my hiding place to buy myself a pack of Anger.
Anger makes me happy. It has lots of hoppy IPA aggression but it is perfectly balanced by toasty and subtly sweet flavors. It goes ok with food, but some of the subtlety is lost. This is an IPA I can drink (a lot) and enjoy. Anger is recommended.
