Second Line West Coast IPA

Second Line Brewing, New Orleans, LA

DSCF3344

6.5% ABV

Clear gold in color with a subtle citrus fruit nose.  Hey!  What do you know??  Another fruity IPA!  Fruit and bitterness, but the two elements are disjointed.  Fruit forward, but not a fruit bomb like many IPAs we have tried recently.  Lacks a malt backbone strong enough to balance the fruit and bitterness.  Not terrible, but unbalanced.

Would we have this again?  No

    Who needs a malt backbone? Is that like a spine made of pretzel dough?
