Von Ebert Brewing A Boat With No Name
What the brewers say
American IPA with Strata, Galaxy and Sorachi Ace hops, providing piney and dank characteristics.
What our panel thought
I love the crisp finish and light body of this beer. The hops are big pine, leaving an aftertaste of a fresh cut 2x4. Hop flavor is very resinous and piney, almost verging on a pine air freshener.
Hop aroma is medium, not as one dimensionally piney as the flavor. The aroma has some floral elements with is nice., Pineapple, melon, and coconut notes play back and forth with pine and some dankness in the aroma to create an interesting and complex nose. That same tug of war continues into the flavor with the sweeter tropical flavors pitted against the danker earthy flavors, with the dank, bitter and lightly drying finish seeming to deliver the winning blow.
What our editors thought
Stinging nose with a punchy herbal bite, it's dank with light overripe tropical fruit notes. The sip is gently bitter and nicely balanced, building intensity with each sip. As thin as an ultra-distance runner, and as focused. No frills, no soft edges.
