Supplication IPA

Post by Geezaldinho on Tue Aug 31, 2010 11:12 am

With Pliny not available, i've been struggling by on RR's Blind Pig and some Hop Czar.
My publican tells me Russian river will be sending up some of it's Supplication IPA, so I looked up a review.

The Beer: The beer weighs in at 7.0% and pours a lightly beige almost pinkish with a dense head of off white head. On the nose its malty, sour cherries, oak, barnyard notes, hay, and horse blanket. The mouthfeel is medium, tons of carbonation. Funky, tart, sour, acidic are the first impressions of this beer. Notes of cherries, oaky, and dry finish. Vanilla and cherries. It gives me the impression of a cherry vanilla coke. Its not a sweet beer. Although there is a cherry sweetness up front the finish is dry enough that there is a great balance. Sour funky and barnyardy. Tons of sour cherries with undertones of roasted malts, caramel, even a nuttiness. This is such an outstanding beer. Every sip adds some new nuance to the flavor profile. I love it, this one gets an A from me.

Mmmmm.... Hay and horse blanket.


Can't wait.

I will admit to being skeptical of a beer that uses "barnyardy" as one of it's descriptors...
