Boomsauce, an American Double IPA by Lord Hobo Brewing Company

Share This Review

Boomsauce is an American Double IPA brewed in the New England style by Lord Hobo Brewing Co., and for the purposes of this craft beer review, the ale was served in a snifter from a can.

Appearance

As expected, this New England IPA pours a hazy ochre with a thick cap of soapy, white foam that recedes slowly. A smattering of sticky lace clings to the sides of the glass.

Aroma

The aroma is a true delight; a blended scent of tropical fruit and pine.

Flavor

The palate features big citrus flavors of orange and tangerine blended with pine resin. A fairly dense malt base tastes somewhat like rye. Finishes dryly with a juicy bite of grapefruit and mellows to a tropical fruit sweetness.

Mouthfeel

Mouthfeel is relatively smooth with its medium body and moderate carbonation.

Overall

Boomsauce is a well-crafted New England style IPA that features a tasty blend of juice and pine in a nicely balanced and complex palate. A high ABV has a negligible impact. Highly recommended.

About the American Double IPA

Also known as an Imperial IPA, the American Double IPA is a stronger and higher hopped version of the American IPA. The style originated in the 1990s when craft breweries wanted to provide a more intense offering to hopheads. The DIPA has more hop bitterness than Strong Ales and Barleywines but has less alcohol.
