Two road’s honey spot IPA

two-roads-brewing-honeyspot-road-white-ipa-two-roads-brewing-honeyspot-road-white-ipa_1
so today’s review sees myself entering the familiar territory of a middle of the road IPA I can easily purchase at the supermarket. I had this beer in preparation for a recent festival and was surprised as to what I found. This isn’t a beer that will blow your mind but in terms of flavour, this has so much more to offer than many of the other beers on those same shelves will.
Soft, unfilitered wheat backdrop that accentuates the Pacific Northwest hop character.
Vital Stats:
  • Comes in a blue can
  • Purchased from Beerhawk
  • 6% APV
  • Brewed in Connecticut America
Look:
This was very Cloudy and quite active in the glass with a three finger head that quickly dissipated.

Aroma:
There was a slight hoppy aroma with a funky off smell that has come to define these cloudy IPA’s. somewhat off-putting but not enough to make me not want to try this beer.

Taste:
Take a direct route to happiness it proudly exclaims from the can and oh how I wish that was true. Hops are there but their visit is so fleeting as to be negligible. Doesn’t taste offensive and I could see myself easily drinking a couple of these especially in the sun but by no way would I describe this as mindblowing. slightly above average but still above average.

Session:
This is a rather good session beer, it’s rather inoffensive and travels well. Doesn’t taste spectacular but doesn’t taste bad either.

This was a surprisingly solid beer, it looked like you would expect and although that initial aroma left a little to be desired it wasn’t so offensive as to make you not want in your mouth. the taste is fine, I mean its far from my favourite beer of all time but it wasn’t so offensive and I wouldn’t complain if someone gave it to me at a party. this is a fine session beer mostly because it is so inoffensive and the taste travels well.
