Glouglouburp (6078) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 17, 2013
In short: A very hoppy (piney) and well malted (nutty, caramel) Black IPA. Good beer.
How: From a bottle at Montreal Mondial 2013.
The look: Cloudy mahogany body topped by a persistent small beige head.
In long: The hop-dominated nose is very scented-pine-tree with resinous undertones. Decent mouthfeel with medium body, texture a bit chewy, medium carbonation. Taste is nutty caramelized cereals. Almonds and an enormous hops presence that tastes like freshly cut pine-tree. A clean and crisp bitterness with only light resinous notes. A good Black IPA. I’m not sure what a hoppy cat is, but I love cats and I love living with a cat and I love my cat, all the time it spends grooming itself and vomiting makes me feel like I’m living with a supermodel.
