I always welcome the chance to pick up something new from Brewmaster Jack.  Careful readers of the blog may be tempted to read deeper into the name of this beer, but I assure you, it’s just another brew.

Beer Name: The Little Brother

Brewery: Brewmaster Jack

Style: Double NEIPA

ABV: 8.5%

Description: Listed as the brewery’s biggest double IPA, this beer was brewed with “loads of Citra hops and just a hint of Simcoe.”

Appearance: Hazy golden orange body with a thin white head of foam.

Smell: Tropical fruits mixed with a touch of spicy pine resin on end.

Taste: Not entirely unlike hopped juice.  Light tropical fruit upfront blended smoothly into a hazy bitter finish that brought on tangy orange and grapefruit mixed with bitterness from a combination of piney, spicy, and earthy hops.

Mouthfeel: Fluffy, medium body with light carbonation.

Hype: None that I can attest to.  I found these cans hanging out with the rest of the store’s new arrivals, but I didn’t know these came in as well until I got there.

Overall: Fairly mellow and super smooth, I really enjoyed this one.  It packed a lot of flavor and was an excellent example of the style.
