House of Funk Brewing Co.- Radegast Double Sour IPA


House of Funk Brewing Co.- Radegast Double Sour IPA Review

Every beer lover of the newest iteration of the IPA will know the aroma and flavour profiles of Citra, Mosaic, and Simcoe hops. Maybe the most widely used and loved of the new batch of hops, you will easily recognize those citrus and tropical fruitiness that made Hazy IPA’s so popular. So it seems only fitting that for volume #1 of Radegast, a rotating double sour IPA, House of Funk chose to use those three now iconic hops.

Radegast is orange with some haze and a small white head that lingers. The nose is tart citrus, including orange, lemon, and a savoury mango note. It is light-bodied and has low carbonation. There is a nice coating mouthfeel from the oats and wheat. The flavor had huge hoppiness at the forefront, mainly citrus but some tropical notes. This is followed quickly by a complimentary bracing tartness. The mango savouriness combines with the mouthfeel wonderfully. The malts are clean and far in the background. Some perceived sweetness is likely due to the citrusy hops rather than residue sugars. It finishes well and much more calmly than the initial sip. There is a bit of an alcohol note throughout.
