While at Ashley’s Westland, we are going to get into Gangster IPA from Hideout Brewery. This is the first time that this brewery makes an appearance on this beer blog. Hideout Brewery opened their doors in 2005 just outside of Grand Rapids, Michigan. They were named after the location and the brewery looking like prohibition era. They brew several different beer styles. They are looking at package here soon just like most young craft brewery. Let us get into this beer.
It has a slightly cloudy copper color with a constant snow-white color head. The aroma has some earthy notes. The taste has a slight water down earthy tones with a dry hop finish. The water down comment is in a good way. It is pretty drinkable beer.
Here is a description from their website (www.hideoutbrewing.com):
Rich and hearty amber coloered IPA. Made with Zythos hops, there is a significant floral presence in both flavor and the finish, without being too bitter.
Here is their website and twitter addresses:
In closing, this is a great beer and I was pretty excited to see it on draft at Ashley’s in Westland. This Gangster IPA has a pretty color. I love the aroma and taste profile. They build a nice malty backbone to cut through the great hop selection in this beer. The aftertaste is not as bitter like most India Pale Ale. They did a great job on this beer and put some thought into it. I will raise a few more glasses with this beer in it. I highly recommend this beer. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
