Beers With Chuck: Jucifer IPA from Gnarly Barley

by Chuck Pierce


In May, Gnarly Barley Brewery in Hammond, Louisiana released their 3rd IPA in their every growing portfolio of delicious beers. It looks like from the response of local craft beer lovers, this one could possibly be their best yet. Let’s take a look at the fantastic Jucifer IPA.

Gnarly Barley has consistently cranked out great beers since they opened back in 2014, taking over taps at local watering holes and restaurants throughout South Louisiana. Recently, they’ve started canning their brews making it even more convenient to get your hands on their product. With the recent release of Jucifer, which will be brewed year round, you can enjoy one of the best IPA’s in the state from the comfort of your own home.


As you can see from the picture above this is one beautiful beer. This type of super cloudy IPA would lead the untrained and under-boozed eye to believe you were drinking a mimosa or a glass of OJ. They would continue to be confused if they caught the aroma which is bright with citrusy notes of mango, orange and pineapple. The taste also follows the aroma with that same combination of flavors that’s both smooth and refreshing on the end followed by a nice dry finish. An excellent juicy IPA that at 6% teeters on the edge of being crushable but for sure should be enjoyed slowly to appreciate every sip.


Look for these kick ass cans along with their flagship brews at local bottle shops and supermarkets, but be quick about it. The Jucifer flies off the shelves pretty fast so make sure you’re following social media pages like Calandro’s Supermarket to know when the next release will be!
