Why we're here...

Beer culture is coming of age. At any store, restaurant, bar, or friend's house you can now find at least a few good brews. In fact, there seem to be so many new beers, breweries and bars it's difficult to separate the good, the bad, and the mediocre.

If you're going spend $10 on one beer, what should you buy? If you're going to drive 2 hours to check out a brewery, what's worth your time? If you're going to plan a Friday night, what has a good selection and friendly atmosphere? We're here to help you answer these questions.

Kermit the Hop

Kermit the Hop is an organic Double IPA by the Bison Brewing Company of Berkeley, CA, although Bison contracts with the Mendocino Brewing Company to brew their beers.

I bought this at the Capitol Beer and Taproom.It has an ABV of 8.5%.

The aroma has hints of citrus and grapefruit. The taste follows the nose, with light citrus, bitter hops and light caramel malts. The finish has a bite of alcohol which lingers at the back of the throat. The mouthfeel is a bit sticky and the body a little lighter than you'd expect for  Double IPA.

Overall, its a decent IPA, but without any unique characteristics. It's probably the better of the Bison brews I've tried - you should Try It too.
