In this beer blog, we are going to get into another brew, which is Neon Gypsy India Pale Ale, from Du Claw Brewery. It is another beer from my beer trade. If you read my earlier beer blog posts on their beers, you know the history of this East Coast craft brewery. If you have not, please, read them to get to know this craft brewery. Let us get into this beer.
It has unfiltered copper color with a semi white head on this India Pale Ale. The smell has notes of citrus and grapefruit. The taste of this medium body is a heavy grapefruit to citrus notes with a dry hop bitter finish for the aftertaste. It is pretty drinkable IPA.
Here is a description from the beer bottle:
Unplug with this golden IPA infused with grapefruit, citrus, and notes of pine by a Vagabond blend of seven hops that continues to roam your palate long after the beer’s crisp finish. Pop the top, it’s time to … disconnect!
Here is a description from their website (www.duclaw.com):
Neon Gypsy, our 6.5% abv India Pale Ale, new for 2014! It is medium-bodied and clear with a thin white head and crisp mouthfeel. A vagabond blend of 7 different hops dominates with grapefruit and citrus flavors and aromas, accented by notes of pine, that continue to roam your palate long after its clean, hoppy finish. Disconnect, and you will find your way.
Here is their website and twitter addresses:
Closing, there is some nice flavors in this beer. I really enjoy drinking this beer and I wish I could get this brewery in the Michigan market. I love the hops and the malty backbone. It is a medium body beer that is pretty drinkable beer. There is a heavy citrus to grapefruit notes. I am pretty amaze with the seven different hops that they used in this beer. If you are able to get this beer, I highly recommend it. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
