One of the goals I set for this year was reading one book a week. Val got me a new Kindle that is backlit, so even though I started to get backlogged on books, I’ve been reading an average of a book every other day for the past two weeks. One of the books that I really enjoyed was Mindhunter, which is the history of the creation of the BSU at the FBI. If you’re into true crime books and don’t mind when they get a bit graphic, this is a book for you.
Style: American IPA
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “New England style session IPA brewed and dry hopped with Citra.”
Random: I really enjoy session beers in the Summer when watching a baseball game.
The beer poured with a huge, three finger, white head. It took a long time to dissipate and left a lot of lacing on the glass. There was a small crown left as well. The body was cloudy and yellow in color with no carbonation visible. The nose had some green melon, pineapple and also a tartness as well. The taste had a bit more alcohol apparent than I thought it would be. There was pineapple and a lot of grass. I didn’t pick up any of the melon note. The body was on the medium side with a lot of carbonation. It had a quick finish with grass. I wasn’t the biggest fan of this beer. I wish it had a bit more flavor. I wouldn’t rush back to have it again.
