Year of New Beer: Pinner Throwback IPA, Oskar Blues Brewery (NC)
Written By: Dion on 05/10/2015
I should have opted for video of this one rather than the standard pic, just to showcase the seemingly endless streams of bubbles rising from the bottom of the glass. On the nose are initial hits of herbal, then floral hop bitterness, with traces of the citrus fruits that lie ahead. On the tongue comes a bitterness that is balanced nicely by a bit of browned biscuit malt and some grapefruit juiciness. I'd place this alongside Sunshine Daydream from Fat Heads Brewing as my two favorite session IPAs. Since this one is actually available in KY, it will earn a spot in my regular rotation of golf cart brews. Picked up at the Trappe.
