If you’re from the tri-state area, you’ve heard of this brewery, but not for the normal reasons. I hear about this brewery almost daily on my ride to work. That happens to be because there is a radio ad about Chase loans that I’m assuming the brewery used that gets played constantly. It’s insanely annoying. After hearing this ad at least fifty times, I decided that I should try their beer and see if the loan was worth it. Let’s see how it went.

ABV: 6.3%

Style: American Pale Ale

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Our flagship beer. This deep amber, American pale ale is brewed with five different barley malts, generous additions of Cascade and Centennial hops, and a unique strain of yeast. The British, German and American malts used provide a blend of caramel, biscuit, and nutty malt flavors. The kettle and whole leaf dry hops provide a gentle, pleasant bitterness with an intense floral and citrus aroma.”

Random: And my Lewis Black special is over. Hopefully I should get a new Netflix before the end of the week.

This beer poured with a two finger, cream-colored head that was very thick and dissipated slowly. It left lots of lacing on the glass. The body was a slightly cloudy orange color with heavy carbonation visible. The nose was filled with grassy notes and fresh grapefruit. It also had a touch of caramel malt at the end. The taste was a lot of grapefruit, and then a little bit of bready malt. The dominant flavor was definitely grapefruit, more like a true IPA. It was very crisp and was medium thickness with high carbonation. It had a long finish with grapefruit. All-in-all, it was very flavorful and very enjoyable. I would have it again, even having to listen to that radio ad all the time.
