Russian River Brewing (Santa Rosa, CA)
"Mind Circus IPA has a mild bitterness and a thick, luscious mouthfeel. This style of IPA is what is being called in the beer world a “Hazy IPA”
This unique hazy IPA gains its flavor of grapes and grass from the Nelson hops, and its tropical notes of pineapple and mango from the Strata hops. It is unfiltered leaving a “haze” and some yeast for more texture.
Oats were also used to add to the softer mouthfeel and hazy appearance."
Big citrus presence. More so on the nose than on the tongue. More grass, and herbs than fruit.
Full, almost creamy mouthfeel and a pleasantly bitter kick.
Not quite what I was expecting ... but very good.
