Formerly Spade IPA.
The sickle- Burial’s icon. A tool that is common but demands attention. Made to please AVL’s thirst for light-drinking hoppy ales with a hint of ingenuity, the former “Spade” Session IPA is just 4.7%. But to make it, we cold fermented West Coast yeast and gave it one satisfying dry hopping with Galaxy and Simcoe hops. In this jar, you will taste floral resinous hops that go down easy. Rad, that’s it. Just rad. ABV: 4.7% OG: 1.047 IBU: 50+ Color: Golden

Really good. Bit lighter than your typical craft IPA in all respects- color, mouthfeel, taste- but exactly what it claims to be; refreshing, sessionable IPA. Pours yellowish with decent head. Simcoe and Galaxy play perfectly together- get the tropical galaxy flavors up front and the piney, resiny notes of Simcoe save it from being too sweet. Super refeshing. Nice to have a less complex beer sometimes and really be able to identify individual hop flavors. This one doesn’t need anything else.

Draft to snifter at Burial. Looks good; a transparent golden orange with thin eggshell lacing. Smells of a fairly bitter hop profile with a medium-bodied pale malt backbone. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. A solid example of the style.

Just a great everyday drinker. Love the clarity in such a pale colored ale. It really lends itself to the session moniker. The blend of galaxy and simcoe is wonderful, because it gives you full flavored citrus up front and piney resin in the back of your throat.

Draft at taproom. Pours yellow with a white head. Leaves trace lacing. Has a bit of hop leafiness on the nose. Has a nice piney vibe on the tongue. Finishes clean. The session IPa is tough to pull off but this is pretty good.

On draught at the brewery, this pours a murky orange-brown into the glass, with a wispy ring head that leaves ring lacing. Dank piney aromas. Flavors are well-hopped, with a hint of cellared melon, silage grains, grassy bitters and almost light peat. The finish is a lingering pepper bitter, light and appropriate for the lively, semi-active palate that accompanies the light body. Interesting session IPA, and continuing the linear farmhouse essence of the brewery. Keep it up guys! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
