    I am a big fan of the Brut style IPA’s. SN’s offering is nice but nothing close to what my local brewery is producing (Columbia Craft Brewery, Columbia, SC). That being said, I like it and will continue to drink it. It’s very light in taste, great summer beer. Very champagne’ish and even has a hint of grape in the finish. For me it needs more hoppy flavor but I love the dryness. It’s a beer that non beer drinker will even like.

    Hello GT!

    Nice review! I liked the way you described and compared the beer.

    What about the alcohol feeling? For a Brut, it should be more sparking and alcoholic mounth feeling, right?

    Cheers,
    Rodrigo

      Thanks for the comment! In the review, I said it tasted more like a 2% beer, so it is very light-bodied by any IPA standards drinking more like a Session IPA. I’m still getting acquainted with Brut IPA as a style (as are most breweries) and the jury is out on what exactly they should strive to be. High, champagne-like carbonation is definitely a major aspect that this one sort of captures. It has big foam at first that dwindles away rapidly like a glass of champagne. But I was hoping it would be more bubbly in mouthfeel. Overall, I think it does a good job and most people will find it good but perhaps a bit boring.
