Redhook Ale Brewery Storm Surge Hazy IPA

Before I get into the review, I am taking two weeks off from drinking January first until the fourteenth. Then I will be back to regularly scheduled reviewing. Now back to this review. This beer is Storm Surge Hazy IPA. This beer weighs in at 6.8% ABV. It’s from Redhook Ale Brewery in Seattle, Washington. Redhook has been around since 1981. They have breweries in Portland, Oregon and New Hampshire. This hazy IPA has Premium, 2-Row, Melanoidin, biscuit, and wheat malts. It also uses Galaxy, Mosaic, Lemondrop, and Cascade hops. This beer pours a hazy yellow color with a two-finger white head. The aroma is bitter, juicy, and fruity, with lemon and some malt. The flavor is bitter, fruity (light lemon), and juicy. It has a strong alcohol feel to it. The mouthfeel is medium. Then this beer finishes bitter, and hoppy with a fruity, juicy flavor. The aftertaste is a lingering bitter alcoholic fruitiness. This beer grows on you as you drink it down. It was hoppy enough. It was just the right amount of juicy fruit. I give Storm Surge Hazy IPA a B-. It does have more of an alcoholic finish that I like for this style of beer. But that is the only fault of this beer. I do recommend this beer. It’s pretty easy to find just about anywhere you by beer. Please be kind, stay safe, and always remember to enjoy responsibly! Have a happy holiday! Cheers!
