Common Ales: Ruben’s Summer Ale

Ruben's Summer IPARuben’s Brews Summer IPA. Not a super strong nose on this one-citrus flower is what I get off this but not citrus itself.

This is a very middle of the road beverage. It isn’t bright enough to be a regular IPA but it’s not hazy, exactly, either. It wants to express citrus without getting into grapefruit, doesn’t want to make a bitterness statement but isn’t going to leave it behind, either. The nose carries a little sweetness but leaves it at the door so you don’t taste it.

It’s nearly a forgettable beer, which given the summer of 2020, maybe that’s appropriate. I don’t dislike it. I can’t rave about it.
