Derailleur Night Rider Route 26 Aroma and Taste

Derailleur Night Rider Route 26 poured out a hazy light golden orange colour with a slight frothy white head one top that faded to a few bubbles around the side that faded to a thin layer of oil on top. There was a an aroma of lemon, grapefruit, and some catty-like aroma to it, with the malts making a faint biscuit aroma. There was a subtle sour note to Derailleur Night Rider Route 26 once it had warmed up a bit – not overpowering but it wasn’t pleasant.

The initial bitterness to Derailleur Night Rider Route 26 wasn’t as potent as some other session IPAs I’ve drunk but it was noticeable. The lemon and grapefruit flavours were simple and straightforward, but it would have been nice to have some different flavours in the beer – perhaps some mango or pineapple. Derailleur Night Rider Route 26 was the first session IPA to be made at Derailleur Beer Works and it started to show in the end, with the hops fading because of their one-dimensional flavour. It finished off with faint citrus flavour but by that time, the immunity to it had built up.

Derailleur Night Rider Route 26 The Bottom Line

As a basic session IPA, Derailleur Night Rider Route 26 is passable but lacks oomph or stamina.
