To Øl – Sur Cedar IPA – 6.0%

Mikkeller Beer Club 25% off

From To Øl comes Sur Cedar IPA at 6.0%. A sour mashed India Pale Ale with Citra hops. Matured with cedar chips. An excellent citra citrus aroma on de-canning. The pour is well carbonated, leaving a golden cloudy ale with a thick, foamy white cream head. I knew what to expect when I bought this ale, however, in reality the drinking experience is slightly strange and unexpected! The aroma sets you up for a big C-hop hit, expectations of the sweet malt appearing through to finish it off, however after a great mouthfeel, the sourness punches through your senses and assaults your tongue, followed by a sharp bitter aftertaste that slowly pulses on each side of your tongue. A hint of saltiness also plays through. A second whiff of the beer gives a wine like acidic aroma hint of ‘sour beer’ with the big C-hop aroma almost completely masqued. The following sips allow an element of malt sweetness to peer through, kept in check by an equal sour bitterness that balances the beer throughout. A thorough taste experience, pretty much unlike anything i’ve tasted before, however the cedar wood chip influence is completely lost on me. Very enjoyable and very well done To Øl!
