Oatsplosion by Central State Brewing
ABV: 6.5% IBU: 55
Indiana brewery #centralstatebrewing makes some great brews. Beautiful simplistic can work and interesting tweaks recipe wise.
Brewed with flaked oats and an equal amounts of Citra and Mosaic hops.
The brewery recommends a drinking temperature for this IPA between 45 and 50.
I keep my beer fridge at 39. I’m not sure if this affected the taste that much. But boy was this bad boy bitter.
Aroma was toasted grains, lemon, herbal and pungent. Following through to the taste was the lemon, strong floral notes and an almost cereal of grains. I attribute the nice body and mouthfeel to the oats and overall my only complaint would be the spicy finish that made it tougher and tougher to drink. I ended up just powering through it towards the end.
However I still recommend 👍🏼
