Beer: Brew of H
Brewery: No Label Brewing
Location: Katy, Texas
Type of beer: Red IPA
Rating: 4 stars of 5
The University of Houston is the alma mater of No Label Brewing’s founders, so it’s no surprise they would come up with a brew to honor the Coogs! This is a collaboration between No Label Brewing, Brew Heart Apparel, and Calhoun’s Rooftop.Very cool concept and one that continues to grow, I hope!
No Label Brewing isn’t scared to push the craft beer scene with their creations. They have Jalapeño, Hatch, and Lavender flavored beers! Brew of H isn’t as daring as a Lavender beer, however you don’t see a lot of breweries releasing a Red IPA, either. I hope that the other breweries take notice and raise their creativity game a bit too.
Brew of H Red IPA is a high quality beer, although the pints I tried weren’t exactly that red hue that I had expected. This beer had a good head and lace in the glass. Initially, This beer has a punch of hops and smooths out with malty sweetness in every sip. Brew of H has a good mouth feel. Starts off like a West Coast I.P.A. then finishes closer to a bock.
I gave this beer a 4 star rating. This is a good, border-line great beer, so the creativity bumps this from a 3 and a half to a 4 star beer. I really enjoyed it and I hope you will as well.
Currently this beer is only available on draft. I found mine at Calhoun’s Rooftop and (I believe) the Flying Saucer Houston has it as well.
