One of the things that was surprising to me in Pittsburgh was all of the bridges that connect the different areas of the city. Since I’m from New York, I’m used to a healthy combination of tunnels and bridges. There were literally bridges everywhere. It certainly took some getting used to.
Style: American IPA
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “We unapologetically brew hop pronounced styles and believe in the process of designing, refining, and perfecting our creations. With the understanding and appreciation of tradition, we take calculated liberties to forge a new path for the American Ale. We believe in eudaimonia, indulgence, and a harmonious blend of earnest work and ebullient play. We believe in the dichotomy of reverent traditions and brazen pioneers.”
Random: I love Dancing Gnome’s logo. It’s so simple, yet stands out on all of their cans and merch.
This beer poured with a one finger, white head. It dissipated very quickly and only left limited lacing on the glass. The body was hazy and orange, with little visible carbonation. The nose had a decent amount of pine oil and grass and then went into orange and tangerine. The taste was much of the same. The pine and grass notes were dominant. The citrus came through in the notes of orange zest and tangerine. It had a light body with a lot of carbonation. The finish was quick with pine and grass. This was a really clean, easy drinking IPA with lots of flavor. This beer is worth seeking out.
