Poured hazy into my mason mug. Love that mug. Had a huge meringue, big bubbled, white foam. Great retention as it takes a while to wither away to a thin film on top of the brew. Beautiful spider-web lacing.
Aroma is on the light side but good. Sweet malt with big citrus hops. Grapefruit is the main citrus note.
Taste has smooth, sweet malt up front. The middle is very smooth transitioning point. Ends with slight creamy, grapefruit hops. Some bitterness in the aftertaste but not long lived.
High end of low carbonation and light body work a charm on this brew.
A good example of an IPA as it seem most CA breweries have a knack for accomplishing. I could enjoy this all day. Why do I live so far away from CA? Once again, thank you Russ for helping out. Enjoy!
"Well ya see, Norm, it's like this... A herd of buffalo can only move as fast as the slowest buffalo. And when the herd is hunted, it is the slowest and weakest ones at the back that are killed first. This natural selection is good for the herd as a whole, because the general speed and health of the whole group keeps improving by the regular killing of the weakest members. In much the same way, the human brain can only operate as fast as the slowest brain cells. Excessive intake of alcohol, as we know, kills brain cells. But naturally, it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way, regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. That's why you always feel smarter after a few beers." - Cliff Clavin, of Cheers
