3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
2/05/2014: Listermann Planetary IPA... I don’t like Citra hops on their own, but love Simcoe hops, so I was looking forward to giving this beer a try to see how the two hops balance out and I’m happy to say that IT WORKS! The aroma is a bit off-putting at first since it remindsm me mostly of ammonia and cat piss, but that eases up a bit as the beer has a chance to breathe. Then more of the citrus/grapefruit/pine from the Simcoe comes out softened by some mellon from the Citra. The hop flavor is very similar to the aroma with grapefruit, pint, mellon, and a splash of passon fruit meld together to form a pleasant hop profile and delivers a moderate level of bitterness. It finishes soft with more of the earthy, herbal, and grassy hop flavors appearing. The lightly caramel-flavored malt is like sweet bread and is definitely nothing but a supporting character, and that’s just fine. Overall, this is a good IPA that goes down easily and is quite pleasing. Draught (pint) at Listermann Tap Room in Cincinnati, Ohio. Rating #6 for this beer.
