Collective Arts Brewing Life in the Clouds IPA

Beer type: New England Style IPA
Alcohol Level: 6.1%
Brewed By: Collective Arts Brewing
IBU: 50

This is my second beer from Collective Arts Brewing. I initially wrote about Prophets & Nomads back in May 2018. As a refresher, Collective Arts Brewing is based out of Stowe, Vermont. Vermont is the phenomenal state that holds the great title of most breweries per resident. Might need to take another trip to visit family up there soon.

Like the beer I wrote about before this (Noon Whistle Mosiac Gummy Northeast India Pale Ale), Life in the Clouds is a northeast style IPA. Traditionally, northeast IPAs have a more citrus flavor and less bitterness compared to west coast IPAs that are the opposite.

When pouring the beer, I immediately smelled the citrus aroma. It has a hazy, tangerine/golden color to it. When I drank it, I tasted a semi-citrus flavor and a crisp aftertaste. In my opinion, it wasn’t bitter at all, compared to a lot of other IPAs.

Collective Arts says that Life in the Clouds is, “an unfiltered beer, neither overly sweet nor bitter, with a pillowy mouthfeel.”

Overall, a good IPA that I would love to drink again.

Cheers!
