Review: Hermitage Brewing Company India Pale Ale Single Hop Series – Magnum

Share

hermitage magnumUp next in this unique series of beers from Hermitage is this IPA made exclusively with Magnum hops. At first blush it’s just a very bitter, rather earthy beer, but as you sip it, a curious sweetness is coaxed out of it. It grows and grows on the finish until you realize — it’s pineapple. Hints of dark chocolate come on after.

What a fun little beer. It’s not entirely balanced or refined, but this is a worthy investigation into what the Magnum hop character is all about. Next time I taste pineapple in a beer, I know what I’m going to look for on the label.

7% abv. 70 IBUs.
