Lord Hobo Brewing Co. Boom Sauce
What the brewers say
“Boomsauce is a blend of three of our New England style hoppy ales that will wrap you in a gently carbonated blanket.”
What our panel thought
Aroma: “Nice fruity notes of pineapple, strawberry, peach, mango, ripe pineap- ple, and strawberry. Sweetness up front with a moderate hops note. Big orange and grapefruit notes.”
Flavor: “Full and juicy citrus notes and some tropical fruit like mango and pineapple. Wow. All of the fruit promised by the aroma is here in the flesh. Just a beautiful melange of fruity notes that continue to impress with each and every sip. Substantial but completely appropriate malt backbone supports the hops with a delicious light caramel sweetness.”
Overall: “I liked the complexity and difference in the fruity character in this beer. The sweetness was nice and worked well to balance the bitterness—a lot of sweetness with the hops to match it. This IPA delivers substantial fruit-salad aromatics that come through just as intriguingly in the flavor. A great IPA—just really well done. Smooth as hell and dangerously drinkable."
