936. Fisherman's IPA

Jadyn and I had dinner at The Miracle of Science in late January. I've been meaning to give some of Cape Ann's other beers a try since the beer fest last fall. They had Fisherman's IPA on tap so I gave it a try.

Pours a hazed copper. Topped by a shiny off-white film. There are hints of sweet, caramel malts in the aroma with an herbal, resiny hop character. The combination of the two evokes a fruity aroma.

There's a toasty malt backbone throughout the beer with a light sweetness. The finish is herbal and citrusy with a nice bitterness. Medium-bodied, lightly oily and highly carbonated.

I though this was a nice balance, the hops were definitely the dominant character.
