Taps Sinister Sam's Insane IPA

Another offering from the Taps on Queen brewpub in Niagara Falls, Sinister Sam's Insane IPA is a cloudy, copper coloured IPA. It arrived with a frothy tan head and very little carbonation. According to the beer list, there is 6.7% alcohol. Sinister Sam had a powerful hop aroma that was both floral and a bit woodsy. It was initially sweet with brown sugar and toffee notes. This is followed by a mighty hop body and finish. Bold flavours and unapologetic hop bitterness made this a pretty enjoyable barley pop. If you like bitter beers, this full-flavoured ale is a good one for you--it'll pucker your lips.

Rating: 7.5 out of 10.
