Vertex IPA (Destihl)

Destihl has created an India Pale Ale in their Vertex IPA that is able to pop with a considerable amount of hop without overwhelming imbibers. The beer hides its 76 IBU well, pouring with a hazy dark-brown to orange and a nose that does not lean too far into the bitter side of things. When one takes their first sip of the Vertex IPA, citrus and apricot are common along with a strong hop twang at the backside of the quaff. There are smaller notes of grain and malt that can be discerned at the periphery, but this India Pale Ale is pretty straight-forward in the fruit / hop dichotomy. This duality ensures that the alcohol content is hidden perfectly, making the Vertex IPA into something that can easily be downed. Continue reading

Porter Culture (Hops & Grain)

The beer pours with a dark brown coloration and a good amount of tannish head that laces its way down the glass. The nose of Porter Culture is slightly sweet with a hint of roasted malt, providing imbibers with an alluring introduction to the brew. The initial sip is a hint boozy with a silken smoothness that would not be out of place in a nut brown ale, while the beer takes on a variety of distinct flavors the further that one gets into a glass.
