Starfish IPA by Brouwerij West

 

Rating: 5/5
 
Starfish IPA by Brouwerij West is a 6.8% ABV India Pale Ale with Mecca Grade barley, raw wheat, raw oats, raw rye, Chinook and Centennial hops, double dry hopped.
Super juice haze into the the dank west coast realm making it a super hybrid of an IPA. For this pairing I went with Undertale as I wanted to do a comparison of the skeleton in the label and Fritz as she looks to the water.

New Belgium makes some nice beers like their Fat Tire Ale. This is their IPA. I have tried many IPAs so I will try to find what is good about this one. The aromas of the Ranger IPA start off with alittle bit of citrus, grassy pine, grapefruit and minor honey biscuit.The flavors are as many IPAs go. Grassy, Pine, Grapefruit, citrus, subtle caramel, biscuit, some herbs and spices, minor notes of peach or a mango but not too fruity. It has a nice hoppy, grassy and bitter aftertaste. While it is quite balanced with flavors, it has nothing new that blows me away. Yet, this is still a good IPA to have. I have tried other bad ones, but this one won’t let you down. Especially if your into IPAs for the hops mainly.
