Beer Review: Dos Osos

Reviewing Dos Osos, a collaborative IPA from Revolution Brewing Company out of Chicago, Illinois and Firestone Walker Brewing Company out of Paso Robles, California.

Score: 93

Tap pour served in a Revolution mug club member mug and enjoyed on 06/01/14.

Appearance: Pours a clean orange-amber color with a half finger of head. Good lacing, okay retention. 4.25/5

Smell: Fruity, piney hops. A little dank. Orange, grapefruit and a nice sweet caramel maltiness. A touch of spice too. Really lovely. 4.5/5

Taste: Tastes exactly like it smells. Piney, bitter bite upfront with a soothing caramel malt sweetness on the finish. Fruity backbone with a nice orange/grapefruit flavor underlying everything. A kiss of residual spice on the finish. Nice lasting fruitiness and grapefruit flavor. 4.25/5

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, medium carbonation. Oily mouthfeel with a mildly dry finish. Nice bitterness, without being very extreme. 4.25/5

Overall: I was glad to see this IPA from last year's Chicago Craft Beer Week re-brewed. Great price point and really delicious.

Cost: $6 for a 20 oz mug.
