CraftHaus Resinate IPA (India Pale Ale)
The Resinate IPA from CraftHaus has 6.5% ABV and 58 IBUs (International Bitterness Units). It’s being served from a 12oz aluminum can that was brewed on an unknown date. The beer was purchased at Top Shelf Wine and Spirits on Ft Apache.
Proper Glassware: Pint Glass or a Mug
Serve @: 45-50°F
Look: The Resinate IPA pours a light golden yellow. Much like the color of straw in the spring. There was ample incredibly light and fluffy head that achieved about 3 fingers of height with an average pour. There was lots of sticky white lacing that is creeping down the side of the glass.
Smell: The nose is very inviting. Mostly notes of pine and fruity citrus with just a hint of malt.
Taste: Unlike a lot of west coast IPAs this IPA isn’t just a piney explosion. The Resinate IPA is a very well balanced beverage. The piney hops meld with the bight citrus flavors and are backed by a tasty malt profile.
Feel: Light to Medium bodied, Adequately Carbonated. Smooth.
Drinkability: This IPA is a good IPA to start getting friends who are afraid of hops into IPAs. It’s a nicely rounded beverage from start to finish. Solid in every category and very easy to drink especially considering it has 6.5% ABV
