Beer in Review: Keeping it in the family

We start with a disclaimer...

The beer in this review is a home brew, known as Coyote Cool. It is brewed by a long-time (like, WAY longer than I've been alive) friend of the family. In general, when I am in such situations that will require disclaimers, I will make every attempt to be fair and objective in those reviews. I'm pretty sure I nailed that here. Perhaps you all may disagree. That's cool. Let's get to it.

This is Coyote Cool's IPA, one of his first attempted bottlings. To start out, there is a moderate amount of hop bitterness--definitely present, and lingering, but not too overpowering. As it warms up, the malt flavors start to open up, resulting in a better overall balance as it warms. There is also some mild sweetness mixing with the hops. Overall, a very solid IPA. Word is, a Black IPA is on the horizon from Coyote Cool. Watch this space.
