Beer 336/365 – Short’s Hanging Frank IPA

Shorts Hanging Frank IPA

Style: American IPA

ABV: ?

Purchased at: Sent in a trade

What makes this beer different: Probably the most controversial label I have ever seen on a beer.

Will I be drinking this again: One time release so probably not.

Grade: A-

10/10/2010: Pretty shocking label right? Well it sure did spark a ton of conversation on beeradvocate and beernews.org. Some people thought it was an African American man hanging in the label, but turns out it was a Caucasian; the owner of a local bar a who hung himself about a century ago. Whatever I’m not going to get into a tizzy over it, I’m just going to drink the damn beer. Hows that sound?

Lots of caramel malt and citrus hop in the nose. The flavor is strong but delicate at the same time; citrus hops, and very caramely for the style (which is okay by me). A bit of toasted flavor as well. Mouthfeel is medium but nice and creamy. One of the better IPAs I have had lately.

Picture of the day: This will help reduce stress.
