Bittersweet Lenny’s R. I.P.A
Schmaltz Brewing Company (He’Brew)
He’Brew’s Bittersweet Lenny’s R. I.P.A is one hell of a beer. It is a double I.P.A with rye malt. The pour is almost goo-y with a small head that quickly disappears. The lacing is heavy on the side of the glass as you drink it which usually gives the sign that this is a good IPA. The bitterness is very potent and noticeable right from my first sip. Along with the hop heaviness, I can also taste a fruit-y texture, ripe apple or plum type flavoring. Another aspect of this beer that I noticed right away was the smell of the alcohol. It’s alcohol by volume is 10%, which is very high and the flavoring doesn’t seem to mask it very well.
This beer is brewed by Smaltz Brewing Company or He’Brew. Also referred to as “The Chosen Beer,” which I love considering I am Jewish. If you are into IPA’s, get your hands on this one, it is worth a try.
