The fourth consecutive beer from Lord Hobo Brewing in Woburn MA. Boom Sauce is interesting in part because it is a blended IPA. Many breweries blend barrel aged beers but Boom Sauce is the only IPA I know of that is blended. This beer is a mix of the previous three beers reviewed from Lord Hobo.
As I noted in the first Lord Hobo release the brewer stated that the first release of Boom Sauce is not where he wanted it to be so I may need to revisit this beer as they recently released the third batch of Boom Sauce. This beer is very nice to look at; very deep orange with a thin white head. Aroma is light and leans more towards the sweet malts than the hops which is surprising for an 8% ABV DIPA. Taste seemed confused with lots going on; sweet, bitter, syrupy with some juicy hops but certainly not what I was hoping.
Overall Boom Sauce is better than three beers that went into it but it also has a lot of room for improvement. More to come on this beer so be sure to check back for updated reviews as the brewers continue to develop the recipes and blending.
