NAME: He’Brew Bittersweet Lenny’s R.I.P.A.
TYPE: Rye Double IPA
ORIGIN: Clifton Park, NY
ABV: 10%
REVIEW: Pours translucent copper color. Smells of pine, fresh cut grass, a little apricot. Nice and bitter up front, a little peppery with kind of a sticky, bittersweet finish, like eating a white grapefruit. A little fuller and stickier mouthfeel than your typical west coast IPA. I really like this beer. Nice, spicy, flavorful IPA for the cold winter months. Been trying a lot of winners recently!

goodwilltasting grade: A-
