It’s been awhile since I last reviewed any local brews, so today I’m drinking High Roller, an IPA from Big Boss Brewing Company of Raleigh, NC, about three hours up the road from me. The head is a firm foam that last quite awhile and has good body. The nose is lemony and grassy, with a hint of pine. The middle is super hoppy, with lots of citrus and pine bite. The bitterness fades in the finish, with a tiny undercurrent of caramel sweetness from the malt, but this is a hop-centric beer through and through. This is a good solid American IPA, but without a lot of notable characteristics. A pleasant every day beer for the hophead.
I give it a 4.0 out of 5.
