Geronimo IPA by Walkerville Brewery

Welcome to Beers and Such, the craft beer review site run by a regular Joe with nothing but love for the craft beer industry. If you're curious about craft beer and you're wondering where to begin exploring this diverse off the beaten path group of fine beverages.



Today, I'll be trying Geronimo IPA by Walkerville Brewery in Windsor, Ontario. So far, I can tell you it's darker than a lot of the other beers I've been trying lately, and for those of you that follow me with religious fervor know I like dark beers. I'm getting excited about this one.


It's a hefty 6.3%, so there's lots of potential for tomfoolery if too many of these fellas get in you. I don't pick up any heavy scents of any kind really...Do I have Covid? Ah, shit.


Better taste it and find out for sure.


Well I'm going to be honest here; that doesn't taste like an IPA at all. At all. It's good and I like it, but it tastes like Sleeman's Honey Brown if you've ever tried that. I really like that beer, too, but it's not an IPA.


I usually do a stage by stage flavour description, but this one is hard to do that with. It's Sleeman's HB to start with a slight bitterness at the end and a nice clean aftertaste. I could easily see this beer fueling a night of debauchery and good times. There's not really a situation it doesn't fit as far as I can tell.


It's good, and I can easily recommend this one to anyone a little unsure of where to start with craft beer. I will say again that this is not what an IPA usually tastes like, so if you do start with this one, be prepared for a shock when you try your next IPA.


My rating: 8/10. It's a good beer and if you like good beer, this one fits the bill.


My lovely wife is my dedicated second sipper. She hates IPAs, so this one should get a better rating than most of the other IPAs on here. Let's find out...


My wife's rating: 2/10. That's a big nope on the better rating. I'm surprised, too.


Well there you have it, friends. Geronimo IPA by Walkerville Brewery in Windsor, Ontario is a good honey brown ale, but for me, falls a mile short of an IPA in taste. Check out walkervillebrewery.com to see more of what this brewery has to offer.
