The Brü Revü – HeBrew Bittersweet Lenny’s R.I.P.A

The Bittersweet Lenny’s RIPA was my second HeBrew brew and it packed a wallop! The Bittersweet Lenny’s RIPA is a rye based Double IPA commemorating the 40th anniversary of the death of Lenny Bruce and is brewed with “an obscene amount of malt and hops.  The brew poured a deep copper color with the faint hint of hops and sweet malt.  The taste was more along the lines of a Barleywine than a true IIPA with loads of the sweet malts on the front end that gave way to the bitter hops on the finish.  It had a very clean and balanced profile with a heavy, sticky body that stayed true to the bittersweet moniker.  For the high ABV this beer was surprisingly smooth and dry.  Another great beer from He’Brew.
