Singapore IPA

07 Oct

This is one of the beers I received weeks back after the LA Dodgers beat the Detroit Tigers; the yearly bet I have with my buddy Steve when both our teams play for inter-league baseball. They beat the Yankees at NY last night and move on the the ALCS; I’m glad The Evil Empire is out. This beer is by Saugatuck Brewing Company, it’s called Singapore IPA. When I read Singapore on the label I thought the country? Upon further inspection, the IPA turns out to be named after the famous ghost town of Singapore, Michigan. This was the first time I have ever heard of the ghost town and of the brewery. Just how many breweries do you have out there Michigan?!

The aroma of the beer was very simple, strong hop, citrus, and a bit of malt if you sniffed real hard. The flavor profile was the same as the aroma, all hops and citrus. The IPA was bitter, but there was bitterness from the hop and the citrus, each different. The citrus bitterness I can describe as the white part of the lemon, the layer underneath the rind.  You know that white bitter part right?

It was an IPA that was very simple in flavor and was all hop; although it wasn’t great, it wasn’t bad either. An average IPA that I’ll rate Three Beer Caps out of Five.

Throw one back for me ~ cheers!
