I think I’m finally getting used to getting up so early in the morning for work. It still annoys Val, but I like that I don’t get stuck in traffic anymore. Traffic on the way home is a completely different story. Tonight’s beer is a session IPA from Green Flash, a brewery that does some great things with hops.
Style: American IPA
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Segal Ranch Session IPA features Tomahawk, Centennial, and Cascade hops that were hand-selected by our Brewmaster exclusively from our friends at Segal Ranch in Yakima, Washington. The verdant pungency and citrus aromatics from Tomahawk hops serve as the perfect base layer to allow the flavors of bright floral and pine sap from Centennial hops to emerge on the palate. Notes of resinous citrus from Segal Ranch’s high-oil Cascade hops shine through the finish.”
Random: This is a seasonal that is available from November to February.
The beer poured with a thick, pure white head that dissipated at a snail’s pace. It left a lot of lacing on the glass. The body was really hazy and bright yellow. There was a lot of carbonation visible. The nose was quite fragrant. It had a lot of fresh grapefruit flesh and grapefruit pith. There was some clean malt as well. The taste was incredibly bright and clean with lots of citrus. There was grapefruit pith and grapefruit zest. There was also a tart orange pith note. It also had a tropical fruit note. After a few sips, I picked up pineapple as well. The body was thick for a session IPA with lots of carbonation. The finish was lengthy with the same citrus notes. A single was $1.83 ($.15 per ounce), which is a great price for a beer with this much flavor. I really enjoyed this beer and would highly recommend it.
