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
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.
