Temecula based Wiens Brewing Company (pronounced “Weenz”) has been pumping out great craft brews since 2012. The family originally began in the wine business, starting their own vineyard back in 2001 and has since expanded their repertoire to craft beer.
Appearance: The Insomniac pours a very light crisp golden color with a very big cream white head. Tons of lacing as you enjoy
Aroma: Tons of citrus and tropical fruit aromas. Great hoppy smell that hits you immediately
Taste: A hop heads dream. Starts out bitter with a malt backbone that settles in near the end but does not completely cover up the bitterness. Not a surprise taste as the Insomnia boosts a high 95 IBU. Tons of great hop taste but not for the faint of heart. Fruits mix nicely with the malt
Mouthfeel: As stated before, big hoppy taste with a bitterness that stays long after you first sip. Medium to moderate level of carbonation. Big hoppy taste that will give your taste buds a wake-up call
Overall: The Insomnia is a classic example of a big, bold west coast IPA. Tons of great citrus and floral hop flavor that packs a punch. The bitterness might turn some off this brew but will definitely be a selling point for those who cannot get enough hops in their beverage. Great Brew with great flavor, worth a try if you get the opportunity. Cheers!
