Flower Child IPA – Cambridge Brewing Company
Us Aliens are just as susceptible to packaging as the rest of you humans out there. When we passed by this beautiful purple and flowered beer can we simply could not pass it up. Plus, it’s an IPA and IPA’s are delicious.
Extensively hopped and dryhopped with a big roster of hops – Simcoe, Centennial, Cascade, Ahtanum, Chinook, and Amarillo – it’s big, bright, and floral, with just enough malt to balance. This American-style I.P.A. stands head and shoulders above its hoppy brethren, blending pale and honey malts to balance the palate without interfering in your herbal reverie, and creating a new American classic. – Cambridge Brewing Company.
Appearance: Simply gorgeous, a beautiful deep bright orange complemented with a (obviously) large fluffy white head.
Aroma: Sweet orange and tropical fruit followed by hints of pine.
Flavor: This is definitely an East Coast IPA, the flavor was very light and balanced. There is a piney hot bite but it is perfectly complemented by the pale malt backbone.
Mouthfeel: The feel of this beer is smooth and silky with low-medium low carbonation.
Overall: Being West Coast Aliens we are used to big bitter hops so this beer reminds us that all good IPA’s aren’t complete hop bombs. Very easy drinking and well balanced.
