The Bruery Humulus XPA
From The Bruery – It’s been a few months since we’ve had a beer from our Humulus series, so the brewers have been hard at work on a new one that will be released this weekend. Our newest addition to this line up is Humulus XPA. It’s an extra pale ale brewed with Brettanomyces, Centennial, Simcoe, and dry-hopped with Columbus hops. At 4.3% ABV, this is a great session beer for the hop heads. This beer will only be available at The Bruery.
The Bruery – Humulus XPA – Growler fill and samples from The Bruery – 4.3% abv
Appearance: Pours a dense clear amber gold with a sudsy head that eventually subsides. Leaves light, spotty lacing.
Aroma: Grassy notes, large citrus notes (grapefruit and orange). I didn’t get much malt in the nose.
Taste: Bitter grapefruit notes, orange, spicy pale malt, a nice abundance of industrial brett notes, giving another dimension of spice and overall boldness.
Mouthfeel: Thin and fizzy.
Overall: A fantastic, hoppy, bitter Pale Ale.
