Bronx Brewery No Resolutions IPA


Beer: No Resolutions IPA
Brewer: Bronx Brewery
Source: Can
Rating: *** (7.5 of 10)
Comments:

Another treat from the Bronx, pours out a deep amber with big bubbles, with a thick but swiftly dissipating head.  The aroma is earthy and fruity, and while typical to the IPA style the flavor is bitter but doesn’t assault you with bitterness.  The balance means that the last flavor is malty rather than an a hoppy aftertaste.
