Vulcan Warrior

B eer tasting time. This is my review of the Vulcan Warrior which was part of the group brew we did. If you remember, I added in a hop tea to attempt to get a big citrusy taste into the beer.

Appearance: Deep caramel, hazy as I expected. Big three finger head of large and small bubbles. Decent lacing on the glass.

Smell: Citrusy, sweet.

Taste: Backend bitterness, subtle, not as prominent as the last batch. Slightly citrusy.

Mouthfeel: Nice carbonation bite. Oily, not heavy.

Drinkability: This is a pretty good drinker, the alcohol bite isn’t present, the taste is clean. It isn’t as big a beer as the last one and I didn’t get as much citrus as I hoped to with the hop tea. I think the additional “wort” thinned out the bitterness and threw it out of balance a bit. This is almost a session IPA. Good, just not phenomenal.
