Bodem Half Acre Beer
What the brewers say
A reflection of how we’re feeling about go-to IPA in today’s spectrum of plants and brewing perspective. Ripe tropical fruit flesh with soft melon and berry.
What our panel thought
Light pomegranate aromas with lingering citrus and biscuit. Tropical notes flush the mouth over a soft round body. Bitterness is on the low end with the hops flavors taking the prize. Another clear IPA leaning to the hops profile of a NEIPA.
What our editors thought
Watermelon, strawberry, and mango aromas and flavors swirl into an almost creamy mouthfeel despite the clarity. A remarkably delicious fruit-forward IPA as confounding as it is rewarding.
