Orpheus Transmigration of Souls

orpheous-transmigration-of-souls

Orpheus, of Atlanta, Georgia, is really good at hoppy beers. I mean, really good. and Transmigration of Souls may be one of their best. It’s a double-IPA that Orpheus calls “overpowering” but it isn’t overpoweringly bitter; it just has huge flavor. The nose has lemon and orange. The middle has orange, grapefruit, pineapple and butter. The finish is smooth, without a lot of change in the flavor though a bit more grapefruit comes out and a tiny hint of pine resin right at the end. The body is medium-heavy to heavy, and the alcohol is 10% ABV and quite subdued.

I give it a 4.8 out of 5.

Orpheus Life.Death.Life.Truth.

Orpheus Brewing in Atlanta makes some killer IPAs, and this is one of them. Life.Death.Life.Truth is an American IPA that is bursting with fruit, primarily of the citrus varieties. ┬áThe nose has orange and lemon, the middle has a huge hit of grapefruit and is fairly bitter, fading to a sweet finish of sugary orange and sticky pineapple, with another tiny hit of dry bitterness right at the very tail. The body is medium and the alcohol is a robust 7.2% ABV and it’s nicely hidden. I love Orpheus beer, and this is a particularly good one.

I give it a 4.7 out of 5
