And the draw is: Parallel 49 Anger Management Angry IPA
My first thought when I saw this label was “well, that’s not very festive”. But on second thought, maybe it’s too festive in the way it reminds us of what the season can be like. P49 is going meta on us with this one.
Aaaaaaaaanyway, Anger Management pours with a big frothy white head and an aroma of citrus hops. Taste is bright, citrusy, piney, and resinous. The IBU of 60 hits a sweet spot where it’s not too heavy for the non-IPA folk, but has enough bite for the IPA lovers. I’d buy this again if it was a mainstream release.
Totally arbitrary score with holiday reference: 3.5/5 Pine Needles
