This Anerican (7.3% ABV) opens with an engaging juicy mango
and pineapple nose with a hint of vanilla. Taste brings a clean
bitter grapefruit taste with a nice old school bitterness balanced
by pine and a bready crackery malt backbone. Soft mouthfeel
with medium carbonation. Simply put this small brewery in
New York makes good stuff.
Overall Rating: Very Good
|Shipyard Finder NEIPA
This is an IAnerican IPA (7% ABV) that is typical of standard New
England IPAs. The aroma is appropriately juicy, and tropical with
herbals and hops in the forefront. Taste brings earthy, woodsy
notes with a somewhat dulled fruitiness and forward grain profile
with grapefruit, citrus and tropical fruit notes in the background.
A solid but far from the best example of the style.
Overall: Above Average+
|Ommegan BBA Abbey Dubbel
This is an bourbon barrel aged Dubbel
(11.2% ABV). Aroma brings the expected
caramel malt, oak, dates, figs, and dried
plums. Flavor brings notes of dry caramel
malt, biscuits,dates, figs,and raisins. Overall
it is medium bodied with light creaminess.
Very light on the bourbon barrel character
which is disappointing. On the plus side it's
smooth, crisp, clean, and most drinkable
considering its big ABV.
