Gnarly Barley Brightside American IPA

Gnarly Barley Brewing, Hammond, LA


6.8% ABV

Hazy gold in color with a light citrus nose.  More bitterness than we anticipated: bitterness overwhelms the fruit and lingers.  Not balanced.  Disappointing, as we have liked the other offerings from Gnarly Barley.  Does not taste like it smells: we expected a more fruity beer from the nose (from dry hopping?).  Seems like false advertising…

Would we have this again?  No

**UPDATE**  We tried this beer on tap at the brewery and it tasted much fruitier: see our brewery review here.

We will try this beer in cans again in the future.  Stay tuned!
