Crow Peak Brewing Company- 11th Hour IPA : Badass in the Black Kills?

Recently I have picked up the running shows and put down the beers, but I couldn’t resist this ominous green can any longer. Jason slid me this beer a while ago and I have been meaning to get to it for ages. After tonight’s run I hit my target of fifty miles ran in under a month and I couldn’t pass on a celebratory review any longer. Fingers crossed that this is a beer worthy of praise and adulations.

I really like my initial impression of 11th Hour. It poured a rusty orange with almost no head and no carbonation. This beer seemed to have a real mysterious air. The aroma was complex and nuanced with hints of sweet malt, citrus and piney hops. The aroma is incredible and dangerously inviting. This brew has a real gravity and presence in your glass. I am truly excited for my first sip.

11th Hour where have you been my whole life? This beer took me by surprise. I was expecting a dense and heavy brew based off my initial impression and I was way off! This beer is incredibly smooth, crisp and light. It has a subtle, sweetness and a citrusy, green tee flavor. Crow peak has a smooth and perfectly blended summer IPA here: Think Ska Decedent Light! It is a shame that I can’t get my hands on this more often because this would be the perfect beer to drink while watching the Cubs lose.

 Consumed: Sensory Glass

ABV: 6.5%

Verdict: Buy A Case!
