Guinness Nitro IPA


I really wanted to like this beer. I love IPAs and Guinness Draught is my favorite beer of all time, so this should be a no-brainer, right? Not so much.

Strike 1: The taste. This doesn't taste like an IPA. It has the honey sweet flavor of a lager. Another problem is that it has super low carbonation, which works for Guinness Draught, but does not work for this IPA.

Strike 2: The numbers. At 5.8% abv, I'm pretty sure is illegal to call this thing an IPA. Also, selling it in 11.2 ounce cans instead of the traditional 12 ouncers is a real dick move.

Strike 3: The instructions. Here are the actual instructions from the beer case:

Who in the world doesn't know to pour liquid into a glass?!

That's three strikes Nitro, YOU'RE OUT!

Oh Guinness, why are you constantly trying to rebrand yourself when you already have the recipe for liquid gold? Just stick with what works!
