Straight to the Top

20170321_201741The neat illustration of Off Color Brewing’s Apex Predator caught my eye first.  The artwork was scratchy and animalistic, apt to its name.  Then I realized that it’s been a while since I’ve checked out a new farmhouse ale, so I picked it up.

Thankfully, my impulsive buy was not a disappointment.  It poured a hazy golden yellow with a frothy white head.  I smelled strong citrus aromas, especially lemon with peppery notes and even some bubble gum.  On the tongue, I primarily got notes of lemon and spices, very characteristic of Belgian yeast.  It’s quite dry with a slightly thin body which was complimented by crisp and ample carbonation.

I like to think this holds up well for a farmhouse ale compared to similar ones.  It finished smooth and is very drinkable, just remember, at 6.5%, it holds quite the punch.
