So, Apple recently came out with a new MacBook Pro. Part of me thinks that I should have waited for the new one and the other part of me reminds myself that I was using a 10 year old laptop that would take a full minute to load web pages. Anyways, let’s get to the beer.
Style: American IPA
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “THINK OF 日本から来たネコ AS WEIRD & GILLY JR – tropical and juicy at an ultra-sessionable 4.3%. Brewed with new age PNW and New Zealand hops, it’s a unique cat.”
Random: I have no idea what the beer name translates to in English.
The beer poured with a one finger, loose, white head. It dissipated quickly and left some lacing on the glass. The body was a bright orange color that was very hazy. There was some carbonation visible through the haze. The nose started with some grassy hops that quickly transitioned into citrus pith and then tropical fruit. It also had a floral hop note as well. The taste was bright, but not heavy. It started with some grass and quickly went into the same grapefruit note that was in the nose. Some watermelon rind came through next with a touch of fruit punch and pineapple. It had a significant bitterness at the end. The body was light and bordering on watery with high carbonation. It had a quick finish with watermelon rind. I picked up this can for $5.49, which came to $.34 per ounce. The beer was on the pricier side for a session IPA, but had a lot more flavor than the typical low ABV IPA. It’s worth a shot.
