McMenamins Beer (All Years) — photo 133 of 140: A pint of Vulcan IPA I tried at McMenamins’ historic (built 1860) Boon’s Treasury pub in downtown Salem, Oregon. According to the brewer:
“The brother to Romulan, Vulcan IPA presents a similar yet different profile to your usual IPA. With a lovely light body, it contains just two malt styles and one hop variety. Mosaic hops were used throughout the boil and to dry-hop in tank, and their unique flavor profile delights the palate in what is a very balanced IPA.” Measurements: 6.1% ABV • 27 IBUMy notes from that day read: “Not the most tasty IPA I’ve had ... I like Sunflower IPA much better. As the description says, it’s different from a normal IPA ... perhaps it’s more floral than citrusy. I love the Vulcan name, but would not order it again.” August 2017. Camera used: Olympus OM-D E-M5 with Panasonic Lumix 12-35mm f/2.8 zoom lens.
