Commodore Perry

Commodore Perry comes from Cleveland, Ohio, where it's brewed by the Great Lakes Brewing Co. It comes in 12oz bottles emblazoned with the battle cry "Don't give up the sip!" and contains 7.5% alcohol.

An I.P.A., Commodore Perry pours a fairly clear brass colour. It's topped with an off-white head that quickly faded to a thin fog. It has a big hop aroma that features a contingent of fruit notes, particularly peach. C.P. is generously hoppy and contains some undeniable fruit notes--it manages to be both bitter and sweet in the same sip.

C.P. is very tasty stuff. It has lots of character, plus I always enjoy a beer that comes with a history lesson on the bottle. Dangerously, C.P. doesn't taste anywhere near its 7.5%.

Rating: 8.5 out of 10.
