The Unknown Brewing Co. Over The Edge American IPA

Over the last few years a new brewery here in Charlotte North Carolina has opened and begun canning it’s beer. The Unknown Brewing Co. with its bright neon green color is growing quickly. I’ve only had one of their beers so far.  That beer is Over The Edge American IPA, 6.9% ABV, which has their signature neon green on the flat gray, can. Over The Edge pour a red like copper color with a three finger white head that leave nice lacing behind but doesn’t stay long. I found not much light coming through the beer, but I did see some carbonation bubbles. The aroma is straight up American IPA with dank resin note and an earthy piney aroma. The smell of this beer really hits your noise. Now the taste is just as the aroma would lead you to believe. Upfront there is plenty of nice earthy bitterness and piney flavors. The in the middle you get more hoppy that stick a little and a smooth bitter flavor in the end with just a little bit of a faint alcohol taste. The mouth feel is a little fuller and Over The Edge has a nice smooth bitter finish. The after taste is nicely hopped with some earthy flavors that linger until the next sip. Overall not a bad IPA so I’d say Over The Edge is an A-. I think that this beer was just a hair to bitter and not close enough to being sessionable but still is a great IPA. The smooth finish is a good thing for this IPA. I like that about it. I would recommend that you try The Unknown Brewing Co. Over The Edge American IPA. Cheers! Please enjoy responsibly!
