Review: Weyerbacher Hops Infusion

An India Pale Ale (IPA) brewed by
Weyerbacher Brewing Co.

Easton, Pennsylvania USA

ABV: 6.2%

Glassware: Tulip

This is very hoppy for a standard IPA but follows the trend that Weyerbacher likes. This brewer has now started to grow a lot of his own hops in Pennsylvania. The IPA pours a nice amber color into a tulip glass from the bottle. It has a great head that sticks a round with some really nice lacing. Hop heavy aroma as I said above. Tastes a bit like you put a very bitter pine tree in your mouth – in a good way. Taste is citrus, undoubtedly cascade in the mix with a subtle malty flavor. I like it but not up there with the great hop monsters but better than half way.

Beer Advocate food pairing suggestions: Cuisine (Curried, Thai) Cheese (peppery; Monterey / Pepper Jack, sharp; Blue, Cheddar, pungent; Gorgonzola, Limburger) Meat (Poultry, Fish, Shellfish, Salmon)

My ratebeer.com score: 3.6

  1. Speaking of Weyerbacher, I recently tried the Weyerbacher Imperial Pumpkin Ale. For never having tried a pumpkin ale, it was a pretty interesting beer to say the least. It seemed a bit heavy and it seemed like I was drinking Thanksgiving dinner. I don’t know if I will have it again, and I will keep an eye out for your pumpkin ale posts. Cheers!
