Dieselpunk IPA

Dieselpunk is a line of contract brews for World Brews, and this is sold in the Kroger's line of stores. This is their 6.9% ABV India Pale Ale.

The beer pours amber and copper in color with over an inch of thick, foamy white to off-white head that leaves some thick lacing. The aroma is lightly fruity, with citrus, and light grapefruit pithiness. There is a malt base underneath with caramel notes. The taste flips the aromas, putting the malt first, adding in the tang, but ending metallic. The beer drinks smooth and easy, with light carbonation. The bitterness is moderate, but light for the style. So, this drinks like what it is, a cheap, off-brand, grocery store line of IPA. It’s not a great IPA, but it is a drinkable beer.
