Now that we’re finally getting settled into the new house, I can relax a little bit and review some beers. I even planted 2 lilac plants over the weekend that my parents gave us. The other half bought me a shovel so I could get the little guys in the ground, despite the fact that she wants about twenty more of them for the yard. But, it’s a start. Anyways, this was a beer that I picked up at Half Time that was crazy local to that area. Despite this, I still haven’t been to the brewery, but I think I’ll get there at some point.
Style: American Pale Ale
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Pale & Crystal malts are the foundation of this beer made with American ingredients. A heavy dose of Columbus & Palisade hops add bitterness & a thirst-quenching flavor & a final touch of Cascade hops give it a strong citrusy aroma.”
Random: One of the best things about having Sirius on my phone is being able to listen to baseball games at work.
This beer exploded when opening, so the initial pour (not pictured) had like an eight finger head. After I poured the rest, it had a three finger, cream-colored head that dissipated slowly and left a lot of lacing on the glass. The body was a hazy, bright orange color with high carbonation visible. The nose had grass and a lot of bright citrus, especially orange. The taste was not at all like the nose. It had a little bit of grass and bright citrus, but then went into marked sweet malt and then back to bitterness. The body was on the thicker side with high carbonation. It had a long, floral and grapefruit finish. For $2.09 a can, this broke down to $.17 per ounce. For this price, there are definitely better options out there.
