Glouglouburp (5929) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 11, 2011
In short: A basic astringent and very hoppy citrusy/grapefruity APA. Nothing special
How: Bottle 22oz. Consumed fresh a few weeks after purchase. Bottle sent to me by mcberko. Thanks Matt
The look: Partly cloudy light golden body topped by a medium off-white head
In long: Nose of citrusy and grapefruity hops, toasted salad croutons and some phenols. The fluffy body provides minimal bready malts (industrial white bread sensation), a light white-sugar and caramel flavour, passion fruits, a lot of earthy leafy hops with a grapefruit twist. Abrupt astringent finish with a short bitterness of low intensity. Lack of after-taste. Not a bad beer at all but this is the type basic amateurish APA I expect to find in villages brewpub and not from a serious brewery. Overall a bit disappointing. Hopworks specializes in brewing organic/bio beers but and I’m a bit afraid to drink them because I’ve heard that most people die of natural causes.

Bomber from Capital Market Salem Dark amber. almost brown ale body, with a large frothy,bubbly tan head. Very hoppy aromas..mainlly resiny/piney Taste?..all hop all the time very bitter even for an APA..some berry fruitiness near the end. Ok on the palate nothing special though.
