In a blind tasting by BJCP trained experts, this beer rated


Rahr & Sons Brewing Company Dadgum IPA

Aroma: “Light herbal/grassy aroma with a touch of tangerine sweetness, lemon zest, and passion fruit. Some mango and strawberry notes subtly move in and out. Relatively muted aroma.”

Flavor: “Great balance for a single IPA with a nice sweetness up front, but just bitter enough for a West Coast IPA. Body is light and refreshing with plenty of hops to back things up. Same hops flavors as in the aroma with a touch of toasted malt complexity mid-palate that is quite refreshing.”

Overall: “Pretty solid beer, though maybe a bit light in body for style. This beer had some nice bitterness with subtle complexity while still finishing refreshing with some citrus sweetness. Nice hops and balance.”
