300 is an American IPA that’s brewed by Fulton Beer, and for the purposes of this craft beer review, the ale was served in an IPA glass from a 16 oz. can.
What You Need to Know
The 300 IPA is a West-Coast style IPA that’s been heavily hopped with the Mosaic varietal. The result imparts a strong aroma and big hop flavor. So how was it? Let’s get to the review.
The ale pours a crystal clear copper and is topped by a thick and rocky stack of white foam that shows decent retention. Gobs of sticky lace and a thick soapy collar cling to the glass.
The aroma is pleasant with a scent of fresh pine needles and tropical fruit.
The hops permeate the palate throughout beginning with mild piney and floral notes. That bite gets stronger towards the finish with citrus notes of grapefruit and lemon. A hefty malt backbone balances the palate, offering flavors of biscuit, caramel, and tropical fruit. A slight taste of booze appears in the finish as the beer warms.
The feel of the 300 is relatively smooth with a body that’s a shade over medium and is moderately carbonated. It’s dry throughout and somewhat astringent on the back end. There’s a slight warming sensation from the alcohol.
300 is wonderfully crafted brew. Its appearance is solid, the aroma is pleasant, and its feel is utterly sublime. But it’s a wonderfully balanced palate that will win you over (and yet has enough bite to please the hopheads) and it packs a tremendous amount of flavor for just a single IPA. 300 is certainly a beer that’s worth enjoying again and again.
