One of my goals for 2019 was to read a book a week. One of the blogs that I follow does a combination of beer and book reviews and I realized I hadn’t read a book in awhile. I had to travel a lot for work at my last job and I got to read a lot of books on the plane. So, I joined Goodreads and my wife downloaded a bunch of books onto my new Kindle. So, expect to see some commentary on what I’ve been reading lately. Anyways, let’s get to the beer.
Style: American IPA
Trivia: The brewery in located in Fairfield, New Jersey. It’s about 20 minutes away from where I went to High School.
Random: The weather is finally getting nice. I’m hoping to hit up some breweries with outdoor space now that the sun has started shining.
The beer poured with a two finger, loose, white head. It took awhile to dissipate and left a lot of lacing on the glass. The body was a light yellow and somewhat cloudy. I could still see some carbonation through the cloudiness. The nose started with lemon and lime notes and then went into a candy sweetness with a touch of strawberry. The taste had a bit more tropical fruit with some pineapple, but quickly went into lemon and lime. Apricot and strawberry came through next and were quickly followed by some sweetness and malt. The body was on the lighter side with a lot of carbonation. It finished with the sweetness and some citrus. I wish the beer wasn’t quite so sweet, but overall a decent brew. It just wasn’t my favorite from the brewery.
