Beer 72 of winter – Palindromic Pale Ale

Starr Hill Reviver

Brewer: Starr Hill       Craft: Reviver Red IPA       ABV: 6.2%

A palindrome is any word or phrase or numeric series that reads the same forward and backward.  Some examples:  Reviver; race car; A man, a plan, a canal, Panama; 22922.  And as a math teacher, this is one of those things I enjoy finding in every day life.  Or in craft beer.

So when I saw this craft, Reviver, I was of course compelled to try it.  It’s a pretty straight forward brew.  This red IPA starts off with a bready, malty character that morphs into a hoppy, rye noted bitterness.  Nothing too complicated here.

Sometimes in life you just need something that is what it is.  This is that craft.  Keep an eye out for those palindromes…

Rating: just a six-pack
