For a brewery that is so close to where I live, I feel bad only having reviewed only one of Lost Rhino’s beers. That changes today with another one of their offerings, the Face Plant IPA. This 6.2% ABV IPA is put into both cans and bottles, and is brewed with whole cone cascade and centennial hops. It should be a good, straight forward IPA that isn’t overly bitter.

Its return has been three years in the making, a Belgian-style Tripel aged in oak wine barrels and virgin oak barrels inoculated with two barrels of Splinter Gold (2010) and infused with Brettanomyces. Phew. Troegs says this “is a highly-carbonated, bone-dry wild ale boasting a rich Bret ‘funk’ married with lush vanilla, toasted coconut, and oaky tannins.” This is the only Splinter beer I’ve yet to try, I’m hoping it’s as good as they say it is.
