Appearance: The Lifted Embargo IPA pours a deep golden color with a small white head that settles nicely. Great carbonation level, can see the bubbles rising!
Aroma: Great hoppy aroma. Citrus and floral aromas with a malt backbone.
Taste: The Lifted Embargo is on the stronger side in terms of hoppy flavor. Rich hoppy flavor, citrus, and pineapple flavors with a kick of bitterness that is soothed slightly by a malt backbone. Bold flavors, not for the weak of heart but will be a fan favorite with those who can’t get their hands on enough IPA’s.
Mouthfeel: Medium to high level of carbonation, enough so that it leaves an impression on your palate. Strong hop presence that is balanced out somewhat by malt on the back end. Malty and hoppy aftertaste that leaves you wanting more.
Overall: Great West Coast IPA. Big, bold hoppy taste that has just the right amount if bitterness and malt to make an overall balanced brew. Those sensitive to hops might not be the biggest fan of this beer, but hop heads won’t be able to get enough. Great summertime IPA. Cheers!
