Beer #22 – Erie Misery Bay IPA
My last encounter with Erie wasn’t quite what I expected, but since I believe you should try everything twice, I opted to check out their IPA. Here it is, the Misery Bay IPA from Erie Brewing Company.
Aroma: Citrusy hops, with almost a hint of sweet chocolate malts.
Appearance: Pours golden amber, almost no head.
Flavor: Grassy hop taste, warming alcohol, with some earthy malt and a nice, full and bitter finish.
Mouthfeel: Nice carbonation, medium-bodied.
Overall: Odd aromas to this beer out of the bottle, but the taste is really nice. The lack of a head is disappointing though, although maybe it’s an aspect of my glass. Aside from the appearance aspect, this is a pretty nice IPA.
