I’m really happy this is a short week at work. Since the holiday hits on a Saturday, we’re off on Friday. I’m also short this week due to someone being on vacation and we’re really busy to start with. I don’t know what we’ll be doing for the holiday. In all likelihood, we’ll be staying home since I’m a bit paranoid of the increase in COVID cases, but we’ll see.
Style: American IPA
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “In the hop fields we daydream and study, and at the brewery we tinker and test. For Field Study, dry-hopping delivers notes of ripe grapefruit, mango, pear and melon. Add a backbone of local rustic pale malt, and Field Study is just what we were after: a slightly hazy yet bright summer daydream come true. We taste: ripe grapefruit, pear, hint of melon”
Random: I love Troegs’s label art. Their redesign a few years back is the best I’ve seen, hands down.
The beer poured with a one finger, pure white head. It dissipated quickly and left no lacing on the glass. There was a crown left on top of the cloudy, yellow body. I couldn’t see much carbonation. The nose had grapefruit pith and grass with some mango. The taste also had grass upfront and quickly transitioned into mango and green melon. There was also pear. The body was lighter than I expected and I wanted the carbonation to be dialed up a bit. It had a quick finish with mango. I thought this beer was alright, but nothing stellar. I wouldn’t refuse it if it was handed to me.
