Review – Weyerbacher Hops Infusion
Weyerbacher Hops Infusion
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a chilled pint glass.
Nice and clean reddish yellow color with excellent transparency. Over an inch of head that left a nice spider web lace around the top of the glass.
Extreme is the best word. My nose engulfed the cornucopia of hops present. It was not too much though and smelled very piney and fruity.
I thought for sure this beer would be so hoppy that it would taste funny. But fortunately, the folks at Weyerbacher were very careful about matching the bitterness from the hops with the very sweet malt. The balance was very enjoyable, creating a smooth and very drinkable IPA.
Lots of carbonation in this beer. Tingled the roof of my mouth and the provided a sense of bitterness on the sides of my tongue. Went down so smooth, definitely a beer that you could have more than a couple.
I just had to try this beer when I read that it was brewed with seven (yes, seven) different hop varities. Having really loved Weyerbacher’s Double Simcoe I decided to give this one a try and brought a six-pack to a party on Friday night. It was a hit. Even non-hopheads enjoyed the smooth, fruity and hoppy flavors and smells. I cannot wait to get more and stock my beer fridge.
