Despite its crazy name, don’t let the idea of a geezer drive you away from trying this delightful WarPigs collaboration with 3 Floyds and Mikkeller. Although similar to many other WarPigs beers in can design, it differentiates itself in many beautiful ways.
The WarPigs’ can collection is truly a piece of art. All of their cans feature a black backdrop with white lettering and a font that makes you think of anything from gothic to badass (its a wide range, I know). However, under the awesome dark can that starts screaming heavy rock or screamo music in my head, there is a beautiful IPA that basks in a body with hints of orange, gold, and brown.
As its name states, Foggy Geezer possesses a beautiful fog to the body, giving you the feeling that you’re not drinking your father’s light beer. It is an IPA, but it defies the stereotypical identity of its brothers and sisters. There is a sense of fruity delight in every sip. The creators define it perfectly right on the can, “A super fruity and dank WarPigs Hazy IPA…” and they could not describe this rockstar of a brew any better. Don’t be fooled, this is very much an IPA, but it is not ruled by the distinct “hoppiness” that many IPAs are defined by.
With the typical darkness of most IPAs, this beer packs a punch, squaring you up and delivering a blow to your jaw at 6.8% ABV. It’s a perfect matrimony with a hard-hitting design, hard-hitting flavor, and hard-hitting ABV.
Are you willing to try anything other than a light beer, domestic draft, or Twisted Tea? If so, this review is for you. Sit back, relax, and enjoy a perfect blend of fruit and dank with your not-so-average Foggy Geezer.
