Howe Sound Brewing Cloudburst Lemongrass White IPA  ReviewHowe Sound Brewing – Cloudburst Lemongrass White IPA Review

White IPA’s have been growing in popularity and with that boost comes room for experimentation. Howe Sound has taken the twist on tradition  and skewed it further in the form of a Lemongrass White IPA. This beer coming in the staple 1000ml bottle pours a cloudy golden colour topped with two and a half fingers of fairly loosely packed head. Through the ‘cloudburst’ of head comes a light, floral and citrus based west coast hop. Given the scent it is not surprising that lemongrass is present but without the name it would be very hard to pick it out. The flavour is well hopped with a distinct lemongrass flavour to it. Starting off with a hop-hit the texture is rather smooth and while the piney-hop settles a distinct lemon flavour comes through. Much like the flavour of lemongrass itself though the flavour of lemon comes through without the associated acidity that you may expect. The flavour is well balanced and with the combination of a smooth texture and a lingering lemon note the finish is lightly sweet with minimal hop bitterness but a citrus-lemon-peel flavour is left behind with its own bitter-sweet finish. The idea of lemongrass may be a little foreign but the result is something the is unconventional and extremely delicious. Another winner from Howe Sound Brewing!
