Junkyard Bennie's Wearin' Sweats Review

Name: Junkyard Bennies’ Wearin’ Sweats
Style: India Pale Ale (Hazy/NE Style)
ABV: 7%

Junkyard Brewing just keeps pulling me back in. Their first two beers I had from them were some of the best sours I’ve had in a while, so naturally I’m inclined to check out even more offerings from them since they’re batting 2-for-2 in my book.

The beer we’re looking at is called Bennies’ Wearin’ Sweats, a New England-style IPA that comes complete with Pat Benatar look-a-like on the label artwork. This does beg a couple questions: Who’s Bennie? Why does it sound like Benny and the Jets? Will Junkyard release their own branded sweatpants? In any case, let’s check this beer out!

Appearance – Pours a hazy yellow color with a light amount of carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass. The head itself is nice and foamy and there’s a good amount of lacing left behind.

Aroma – Citrus & Kiwi notes mixed in with some pale and caramel maltiness. The kiwi notes in particular are nice and potent.

Taste – Much like the nose, the palate is made up of vibrant citrus hop and kiwi notes, all of which are supported by a pale & caramel malt backbone. The aftertaste consists on a light bitter hoppiness and light kiwi sweetness.

Much like the first two beer I’ve had from Junkyard: Wow! This beer is not only a easy drinking beer but it’s a vibrant, tropical tasting one at that. Like the previous beers I’ve had from Junkyard, this one is very easy to recommend.

Junkyard Bennies’ Wearin’ Sweats – 9/10
