Simple Malts Trio Houblon--Cascade India Pale Ale Americaine

Cascade India Pale Ale Americaine one bitter little brew. It clocks in with 66 IBUs and contains a potent 6.4% alcohol. It's a mostly clear, brass coloured beer. It pours with a cream head that lowers quickly.

The aroma is built around hops. There are some grapefruit notes, as well as come caramel. The flavour is similarly situated around bitterness braced with caramel. The finish is nice and dry.

If I had my way, there would be more emphasis on citrus hop bite and a bit less malt-driven sweetness. It's an admirably bitter brew, but I feel like it could be more refined.

7.0 out of 10.
