West Coast IPA 2 Third Runnings Data and Results


Descriptors: lemon, pine, citrus, spice, sticky, resin

Tightly packed white head. Big piney and citrus notes coming out, almost a lemon quality to the nose. Mouthfeel is pretty good, not too liquidy for being a third runnings, I think the extra 2 pounds of vienna helped a lot with this. Might even add slightly more carpills to, maybe .25 pound or so. But I don’t think I could tell this was a third running by the mouthfeel. The taste is a very sticky hop bomb taste with a slight spice bitterness to finish, probably from the chinook. I think this is a little too bitter for the size of the beer. Maybe drop it 15-20 IBU. Maybe back off on the chinook in the dry hop and up the simcoe. Overall, not a bad beer at all for being a third runnings, especially at the 3.8 percent, seems much much bigger than that.
