|Workhorse IPA | Laurelwood Brewing Co.|
A former national IPA champion, Workhorse exemplifies the NW's epic beer scene. Laurelwood Brewing Company out of Portland should be on every one's list. The first thing I noticed was its potent scent. Once poured the copper color reveals a faint sweetness below the white foam.
Three types of malt help to fuse some luscious notes into a blend of hops which include Citra, Galaxy, El Dorado and Columbus. This odoriferous medley is added to the kettle and again during two separate stages of dry hopping. Having had this only once out of the bottle, I look forward to savoring it the next time. Be on the lookout for Workhorse IPA. 7.5% | 80 IBU
