Stacys Mom Beer Review
The beer is termed as an IPA, but some of its characteristics are closer to a Session IPA or a Pale Ale. This beer is lighter than other IPAs with a much lower bitterness index. With 85 IBUs and a 7.5 percent ABV, here is everything you need to know about this stunning yet unique IPA brew. Dive in.
The beer pours a hazy amber color, almost in the family of deep gold. The beer has a frothy cream-colored two-finger high head with moderate head retention. Some would call the color of the beer to resemble a darker Blonde Ale.
The light yellowish head is about one inch tall and tightly beaded. The beer is also extremely effervescent which helps keep the head intact for a longer time. As the head vanishes, it leaves a light lace around the glass as you drink it.
There is a rich blast of citrus flavors, as the name suggests. There are flavors of stone fruit with some mango bites on the back. There is additionally some grainy sweetness paired with some light spiciness. There are light aromas of caramel, orange, and light pine. The fruit-forward hops showcase slight melon sweetness too at the back.
The Citra hops provide an explosion of tropical fruits, orange, peach, lemon peel, and mango complimented with a toasty malt base. Overall, the beer has fruity, citrusy, earthy, and piney flavors and is very light and pleasant on the nose. Nothing bitter or strong, like some other IPAs.
The beer is medium-bodied and lined with slightly harsh bitterness. The bitterness balances out the malty sweetness and adds some edge to the beer. There is persistent carbonation with a tart-like and dry finish. There is a light touch of sour bitterness at the back of the mouth. There is some faint alcohol warmth present in the aftertaste.
The taste of this IPA is slightly on the sweeter side. On the palate, it has a finish of cracker dough with a fair share of juicy hops. There is an evident taste of mango, little pithy, tangerine, and plenty of citrus flavors. It is not extremely creamy and has a well-balanced crispness with the use of flaked malts.
The beer is also slightly bitter on the palate as the Citra hops bring in citrusy bitterness to the recipe. The bitterness also lingers on the aftertaste with some strong peppery flavor.
– Food Pairings
This beer goes best with spicy dishes and salty flavors. Fried food, spicy barbeque chicken, Indian food and curries, tangy Mexican food, burgers, and stakes are some of the many food pairing options for the Beer. Furthermore, the beer is lightly sweet to taste which is a good thing as it would bring out all the rich flavors of the spices used in making Indian and Mexican food in particular.
The beer is made of rich and high-quality ingredients to bring out the best flavors in the end product. In addition, the brewers have used classic 2-Row Crystal malts Citra hops in excess to bring out the right balance between bitterness and bready-maltiness.
