Legion Brewing Winnie the Brew Honey Double India Pale Ale

Here is another Legion Brewing beer, Winnie the Brew Honey Double India Pale Ale, 10.2% with 95% IBU (International Bittering Units) a high IBU for an IPA. This IPA is brewed in Charlotte, North Carolina with honey. It pours a deep copper color with an off-white four-finger head that is slow to fade. The aroma is piney and bitter with a very faint sweet honey note. It’s a strong bitterness coming off this IPA. The Flavor is very bitter with piney notes and a little honey sweetness, but the honey also adds to the big bitterness and makes this a very hoppy bitter IPA. It does have a light honey flavor that follows the bitter/hoppy flavor. The mouthfeel is full and sticky. This Legion IPA finishes with a bigger bitterness and has a piney bitter honey aftertaste that comes and goes rather quickly living only bitterness behind before your next sip. Legion Brewing Winnie the Brew Honey Double India Pale Ale is a big bitter monster of an IPA but the flavor is right on with the bitter and the honey, they play well with one another. I give it a C+ it is good but the huge bitterness holds it slightly above average in my opinion. Not a beer you would have more than a pint of. It is better than some honey-flavored IPAs I’ve had but I’m not the biggest fan of honey IPAs but I don’t dislike them. Please be kind, be safe and please enjoy responsibly
