A year ago, my Dad gave me an Apple watch that he received as a gift. For some reason, I just wasn’t a big fan of it and switched to a Fitbit watch and I absolutely love it. I do a lot of walking for my job, so it tracks it and it yells at me if I sit too long, which is perfect.
Style: American Double/Imperial IPA
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Our newest year-round is an Imperial India Pale Ale brewed with high-quality pilsner malt and flaked oats, making this beer light in color but certainly not in body or alcohol content. It is aggressively hopped with Mosaics out of the Pacific Northwest, giving the Captain’s Daughter a strong aroma and flavor of tropical and stone fruits.”
Random: I’m not a huge fan of the can art on this beer.
The beer poured with a one finger, white head. It dissipated slowly and left some lacing on the glass. The body was bright yellow and slightly cloudy. It had a lot of carbonation visible. The nose was filled with citrus. It smelled like freshly cut grapefruit, orange and lemon segments along with pith. There was also a hint of malt as well. The taste was really crisp and citrusy. It had some cracker malt along with orange and grapefruit segments and pith. There was some grass in the background as well, but alcohol was very well-integrated. The body was on the lighter side of the style with moderate carbonation. It had a lengthy, bright, citrus finish. My parents brought this beer back for me from Massachusetts, so free beer, yay! Even if I had to pay for it, I loved this beer. It’s worth seeking out.
