Eurisko Beer Co. RIPA

I took a trip over to a local pasta shop Pasta and Provisions and bought some beer. One is RIPA, 6.0% ABV from Eurisko Beer Co. and is from their Wonderful; Weird beers. This beer is a Rice India Pale Ale, and that is why it’s RIPA. This brewery is in Asheville, North Carolina. Eurisko uses rice, Citra, and Crystal dry-hopped, and then it’s finished with an addition of SPECTRUM Citra dry-hopped liquid. This beer pours a yellow color with a big three-finger steady fading white head. The aroma is hoppy, piney, dry, and bitter. The flavor is like its own aroma. It is dry, hoppy, bitter piney, and has little rice lager taste. The mouthfeel is barely medium. Then this ale finishes dry and bitter. The aftertaste is dry, and bitter, with a little crisp note. The rice adds a nice touch to this IPA. I don’t see many rice IPA, there is a little more rice lager out there. This is a good IPA, and I give it an A. I didn’t get much of the Citra hop flavor but that didn’t knock it down too far. It’s an IPA that I would recommend trying. Please be kind, be safe and remember to always enjoy responsibly! Cheers!
