Minerva 7:50 is a clear, solid amber ale with a soft, dense, off white foam that has outstanding retention and lacing. It has a hoppy aroma, with notes of grass, wood, leaves and something a little metallic. There’s a touch of caramel or maybe molasses. It has a very smooth, medium body with a crisp, dry finish. It’s amply bitter, leafy, botanical with a hint of juniper. It’s a little peppery. Something kind of like dark roast shows up briefly at the finish. The aftertaste is bitter like wood resin and citrus peel and just a tiny bit sweet. I’m super impressed. This reminds me of an American IPA from back in the day, like Ballard Bitter or something. Many, many thanks to Christian and Ranferi.
