Boomsauce is the flagship beer for Lord Hobo Brewing featuring six hop varietals and a trio of malts. The result is a hazy brew with a bombastic blend of tropical fruit and pine. So how was it? Let’s get to the review.
As you’d expect, this New England DIPA pours a hazy ochre and is topped by a thick cap of soapy, white foam. The head recedes slowly and leaves a smattering of sticky lace that clings to the sides of the glass.
The aroma is truly delightful with its blended scent of tropical fruit and pine.
The palate features big citrus flavors of orange and tangerine that’s blended with pine resin. A fairly dense malt base tastes somewhat like rye. Finishes dryly with a juicy bite of grapefruit and mellows to a tropical fruit sweetness.
The Boomsauce has a relatively smooth feel with a medium body and moderate carbonation.
Boomsauce is a well-crafted New England style IPA that features a tasty blend of juice and pine in a nicely balanced and complex palate. Its alcohol content neither impacts flavor or feel. This Double IPA comes highly recommended.
