Beer God’s Notes

Original Tasting Notes: Lumen – oh my god. The aromas coming from this beer are to die for. And the flavors are awesome too. I keep thinking I’ll have an average Grimm IPA at some point, but it hasn’t happened yet.

Sometimes you have a beer and it takes you somewhere.  That’s what Lumen did.  I felt like I was sitting in a hop field during harvest, sipping on fresh hop juice.

The irony of that statement is that the beer isn’t overly bitter.  It had a really nice balance to it.  Sometimes when you get hoppy beers like this it’ll be overly bitter or overly sweet, but Lumen found the happy middle ground.

There was a lot of hop flavors in the finish. And I was getting a really nice tropical fruit flavor throughout with great mouthfeel.


Style: IPA
ABV: 6.4
SRM: 5
Bitterness: Medium

Beautifully hazed-up new school IPA. Juicy and soft with an aroma that catches your attention from across the room. Velvety mouthfeel, soft bitterness. Citra, Mosaic, Equinox, and El Dorado varietals kicking out a range of tropical flavors. Perfectly balanced and dialed in. Draft only. Born on 1/11/16.

(This was taken from the website, but is obviously not draft only anymore.)
