Glorious, an American Pale Ale by Lord Hobo Brewing Co.

Share This Review

Glorious is an American Pale Ale brewed in the New England style by Lord Hobo Brewing Co., and for the purposes of this craft beer review, the ale was served in a tulip pint glass from a can.

Appearance

The pale pours a somewhat cloudy straw that becomes downright foggy as the can is emptied. Ample sediment is visibly afloat. It’s topped by a pillowy cap of white foam that shows fine retention. Patches of sticky lace cling to the glass as the head recedes.

Aroma

The aroma is predominantly floral with a hint of citrus.

Flavor

Hops dominate the tasting but the palate begins with a smooth cracker malt. It’s joined by a gentle floral hopping that crests towards a herbal, pepper, and citrus bite. Grapefruit and lemon linger on the back of the tongue, mellowed briefly by a flash of tropical fruit.

Mouthfeel

The feel is dry with a medium body and medium-high carbonation.

Overall

Glorious looks like a pale but tastes more like an IPA. Its hop-loaded palate lacks the balance characteristic of the style, and in fact, its IBU count is higher than many IPAs. But pushing that aside, Glorious tastes as good as its name. Its palate seems light and its dry carbonated feel makes it really refreshing. So, if you don’t mind the bite, Glorious is a solid brew.
