Top 10 beers in the world press

23rd July, 2014 by Neal Baker

Desirous, Penrose Brewing Co., Geneva, IL., USA

The Chicagoist reports on a new White IPA from Illinois brewers Penrose.

The aroma is described as “absolutely delightful, with prominent notes of pineapple skin and floral spice.”

On the palate, there’s an “assertive bite of hop bitterness that turns tropical after a second, which lends a hint of earthiness” and despite that sharpness up front, “the wheat used in the grain bill keeps the body of Desirous pretty creamy, which plays off the bright, fruity hops quite well”.

“This might be as close as beer has ever gotten to tasting like a pina colada—we mean that in an incredibly positive manner”, they continue.

However, “don’t be fooled by the beachside cocktail reference though, this is still definitely a beer for hop lovers.”

White IPA, 6.2%
