Brew Detective: Mikkeller Round Tower

Round Tower IPA & Poblano Corn Chowder!
Four pints for take out, check. I scored Round Towe, a delicious double dry-hopped, New England style, double IPA—I know, it's a mouthful. This amped up IPA (9%) is one of the more recent offerings from Mikkeller's Hop Series. Gotta love Mikkeller Bar SF.

Pouring Round Tower creates an almost oat-like cloudiness, yet it's ultimately transparent. A nice head floats above, lingering still after a moment. Easily spottable is the sediment and carbonation, both move about in the glass. The nose is skunky and the first taste is juicy. It's smooth, but its gravity does hit the slightest hot. A good finish helps ease any worries. I wish I had more.

If you happen to get your hands on a Mikkeller 4-pack, enjoy, you're lucky. I've been really stoked on their limited supply of rations. Anytime I'm at their bar, I always inquire early about the available beers they've canned. It's awesome to crack open one of their pints at home. I've got 99 problems, but good beer ain't one. Enjoy responsibly.
