Scorpion Double IPA
The Tin Whistle Brewing Company
Penticton, British Columbia
Double (strong) IPA
This is going to be a quick review. AND... The review below is what I and only I think of it based on what I tasted. This beer tastes like it can have a lot of different opinions ok? Ok. Let's begin shall we?
The smell of this beer has a really defined citrus aroma. The smell is intriguing. The citrus aroma is inviting. The taste is also very unique and surprising. You'd expect it to have a serious hop flavor because it's a double IPA, but it all comes down to the malt taste. It has a real deep malt taste. So much that it masks the hop aroma. But that's not necessarily a bad thing. I'll admit that this beer is not well balanced but I do like the taste. It has a medium finish (medium bitterness) and the aftertaste does linger longer than I would like but it's not a bad beer overall. If you like beer that is more malty than anything else, try this one.
