Blowing Rock Brewing Company Cloud Rise Hazy IPA, 7.2% ABV from Hickory North Carolina was gifted to me through my father’s business associate. Cloud Rise is brewed Cashmere, Mosaic, and Simcoe hops. Cloud Rise pours light hazy orange with a three-finger sticky white pillowy, cloud-like head that gives off hoppy citrusy tropical fruit notes of orange and freshly crushed pineapple that gives you a taste of juicy orange and fresh pineapple with a nice bitterness on the middle of the mouth with a crisp flavor of grapefruit that comes together for a fruity juicy finish and aftertaste that of fresh hops with nice orange and light grapefruit pineapple with a medium mouthfeel. Blowing Rock Brewing Co. Cloud Rise Hazy IPA is a refreshingly fruity hazy IPA that gets a B+ here. I think that the 7.2% ABV and the bitter hoppy notes do tend to become too much after three of these and that is the only thing I found to be negative about Cloud Rise, the beer is good with nice flavors and you should try Cloud Rise for yourself! Cheers! Please stay safe at home and enjoy responsibly! Cheers!
