“Rico Sauvin DIPA” Craft Beer Review


Brewed by Against the Grain Brewery & Smokehouse


Style: American Double/Imperial IPA

8.20% ABV

Serve at 48°

Availability: Limited

Enjoyed from a snifter

NotesAn India Pale Ale featuring Nelson Sauvin hops. Named after the Sauvignon Blanc grape, is a variety of hop developed and grown in New Zealand. It has a strong fruity flavor and aroma that is described as resembling white wine, or fresh crushed grapes or gooseberries. Some reviewers of this hop perceive the fruitiness as being very tropical with descriptions including passion fruit, tangerines, and grapefruit.

A: Pours a hazy, dark peach color with a thin white head.

S: Bright and perky, the hops and pine notes practically slap you in the face. Peach, fresh grapes, citrusy hops, grassy, subtle caramel malt notes, complex on the front end.

T: Not sure I’ve had such a unique hop bomb as Rico Sauvin. Caramel sweetness intermingled with light honey, nuttiness, baked bread, tangerine, lemon rind, grapefruit, and pineapple notes. Fragrant, herbal, and very floral. A mild spiciness lingers.

M: Medium bodied, nice carbonation. Chewy and oily with a nice boozy end.

O: Against the Grain are amazing and I hope the is the first of many bombers on my local shelves.
