Left Hand Brewing Company’s Warrior IPA

Warrior IPA
6.6% ABV
(sorry about the root link but their site is flash-based, which would explain why it was also poorly indexed in Google)

Appearance
Clear and light amber in color, pours clean with a good two fingers of head.

Smell
Nothing but floral hops on the nose. Very hoppy.

Taste
Again, very hoppy with both florals and bitters coming through. Very odd finish of Bazooka bubble gum. Hoppy bubble gum.

Mouthfeel
Refreshing and clean.

Drinkability
Highly drinkable. The florals up front are delightful and the weird sweet bubble gum-like finish clears the path for another mouthfull of hoppy goodness.

Overall
The bubble gum flavor was noticed not just by me during this session. It’s an odd flavor to find in a beer, but it works well with the almost intense floral hoppiness. Hoppy bubble gum it is, though definitely not chewy.
