On deck today is an impressive lineup of IPA’s from our friends at Starr Hill Brewery. The base beer is one many of us are familiar with, King of Hop IPA. This limited edition 12 pack also adds in a few friends; Lemon-Lime, Grapefruit and Habanero. Each of which changes the game in a fun and surprising way. Let’s check ’em out.
King of Hop IPA: First things first, let’s touch on the base beer for this adventure, King of Hop IPA. This is an imperial IPA at 7.5%ABV with a golden to light orange hue, pours clear with a nice head (and yes, I waited too long to shoot the photo). On the nose this beer already has a lot of tropical fruits, citrus and maybe even a touch of stone fruit. The flavor is strong with a pronounced hop presence; sweet, citrus, resin. The beer also lingers nicely on the palate as it fills the mouth and sticks around for a bit.
Lemon-Lime: The first thing I thought when I smelled this beer was, margarita! Lime zest makes this beer come to life and live up to it’s name.
