ControversiALE (AKA Hangin' Frank India Pale Ale) by Short's Brewing Company
American IPA
0.00 % ABV

ControversiALE was formerly known as Hangin' Frank IPA.

From the label:
"A state of prolonged public dispute or debate, usually concerning a matter of opinion. The word was coined from the Latin contoversia, as a composite of controversus - "turned in an opposite direction", from contra - "against" - and vertere - to turn, or versus (see verse), hence "to turn against". Perennial areas of controversy include history, religion, philosophy, politics, and beer labels."

(Served in a teku)
A- This beer pours a touch of hazy to a deep aged copper body with a think wispy head and a slow carbonation of tiny bubbles.

S- There is a perfumed green juicy hops full in the nose with some soft caramel malt notes in the finish.

T- The juicy green hops are dry in character with some unripe lime flavors and a citrus pith in the slightly dry finish. There is a resin hop pungency that lingers but no bitterness with it.

M- There is a nice light mouthfeel with a crisp fizz that boost the hops flavor

O- This has a nice full hop flavor with lots of good depth to the hops and they are well supported by the malt bill. Very drinkable but a touch to dry in the finish to make it sessionable.
