Aeronaut Improbability Drive

Val and I took a trip to Maine and Boston last year and we stopped at Aeronaut after they released this collaboration beer with Finback. Let’s see how it was.

ABV: 5.9%

Style: New England IPA

Trivia: According to wikipedia.com, “Somerville is a city located directly to the northwest of Boston, and north of Cambridge, in Middlesex County, Massachusetts, United States. As of 2010, the United States Census listed the city with a total population of 75,754 people, making it the most densely populated municipality in New England. As of 2010, it was the 16th most densely populated incorporated municipality in the country. Somerville was established as a town in 1842, when it was separated from Charlestown. In 2006, the city was named the best-run city in Massachusetts by the Boston Globe. In 1972, in 2009, and again in 2015, the city received the All-America City Award. It is home to Tufts University, which has its campus along the Somerville and Medford border.

Random: I bought a shirt at Aeronaut and it’s a beautiful green color and really soft.

The beer poured with a two finger, pure white head. It dissipated at a moderate pace and left some lacing on the glass. The body was hazy and bright yellow with no visible carbonation. The nose had a lot of orange notes and grapefruit. The taste started with orange as well. It had a creamsicle note that came with a lot of vanilla. The body was very light with a lot of carbonation. It had a quick finish with orange. I liked this beer a lot and would definitely have this again.

Aeronaut Hop Hop And Away

While we were in P-Town, we went to a place called Canteen. It’s a fast casual place with an amazing lobster roll and was listed as a must stop on a travel article I read while planning where we would go. Their beer selection was limited, but had two offerings from Aeronaut.

ABV: 4.6%

Style: American Pale Ale

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Sitting in a cervois, this beer has a glowing golden cloudy hue that’s highlighted by a bright white head. At first taste you take in a smooth and subtle bitterness letting through a pleasing malt bill. Using only bare bones base malts and some slight accompanying specialty malts to spice it up, this malt profile shines through a very light smooth bitterness. Pleasant grain flavors gently subside to a bath of hoppy citrus and fresh cut grass flavor. Tongue coating and rich, Citra and Mosaic jump off the page leaving the palate poised for more. Emerging from the golden depths, cascades of bubbles endlessly waft notes of grapefruit, melon, and tropical fruit. The end result, a very drinkable and refreshing pale ale with mild bitterness and bustling aroma.”

Random: This beer comes in at 42.2 IBUs. Very specific.

Unfortunately, they did not have glasses at this particular establishment, so I drank this beer out of the can. The nose on it, from what I could pick out, was mostly grassy with a touch of lemon rind. The taste had a bit more than the nose. There was a lot of grapefruit rind and quickly went into light pine and grass. There was a touch of apricot and honeydew melon. There was very little malt at the end of the sip. The body was light and crisp with a lot of carbonation. It had a quick finish with grass and melon. I enjoyed this beer a lot and it paired well with my grilled cheese. I would have this one again and I love the can art.

Aeronaut A Year With Dr. Nandu

I started watching this show “Stitchers” on the Freeform network. The show’s premise is that this one character can enter a dead person’s memory. It’s absolutely ridiculous, but I have issues giving up on shows when I’ve watched them from the beginning. It’s on season 3 and I don’t see it lasting much longer than that. Anyways, this is a beer that my parents brought me home. Let’s see how it was.

ABV: 6.3%

Style: American IPA

Trivia: The only thing about the beer on the website is that it is brimming with Centennial and Mosaic hops.

Random: I get most of my blogging done when Val is asleep on the weekends. I tend to get up earlier than her.

The beer poured with a huge, three finger, cream-colored head. It took forever to dissipate and left a significant amount of lacing on the glass. The body had a slight haze to it and it was amber in color. There was also moderate carbonation visible. The nose had some pine and grass and a decent amount of slightly toasted malt. The taste started with a slight alcohol burn, despite the low ABV. There was grass along with mango and grass clippings. The body was light and had just enough carbonation. The finish was quick with grass. This was another beer that I received as a gift, so I have no idea how much this beer was. This was just a middle of the road IPA for me that I wouldn’t rush back to have.
