Helms Brewing Company was original founded by four ship builders right here in San Diego, CA back in 2012. With a great lineup of beers, and several awards already under their belt, Helms has a bright future ahead! Stop by their Kearney Mesa or Ocean Beach tasting room and grab a pint!
Appearance: Great golden brown haze color with a large white head. Lots of lacing with this one!
Aroma: Rye is very prevalent. Great mixture of citrus that blend well with rye backbone.
Taste: Once again the rye flavor is very prevalent. Starts out with rye and then immediately transitions to a more citrus flavor. Tropical fruit flavors make for a very light and flavorful IPA.
Mouthfeel: Medium to moderate level of carbonation. Suits the light hoppy flavor well. Light and crisp, nothing too overpowering.
Overall: A great take on the traditional IPA. Rye and citrus mix well together to create a light and crisp IPA that will be great for summertime. A nice twist on a traditional California IPA! Great for the beach or the next BBQ!
