Notes/Commercial Description:
Vallejo, an India Pale Ale pulled from the rocky cliffs of your mind. Both Space and Vallejo are pure examples true-to-form of hop thrashers. Hoppy beers are as common as dirty socks. Some may hear the vinyl skipping, but for us hops are the meat of the rhythm that brought us to the show. Hoisting pints of seminal hop screamers from brewers turning out beers with rough tools is what holds our aim and keeps us honest. We salute refinement, but rally around the indulgence of the beast that brought us to the table. Space & Vallejo are raw, naked examples of micro built beers that stick to your ribs.

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Pale orange body. Small white head. Settles to a thin collar.

Smell - Very pungent. Heavy grapefruit. Some grassy and herbal notes. Cracker malt.

Taste - Grapefruit. More of an emphasis on the pine and herbal hops. A hint of doughy sweet malts, but again it's mostly cracker. Intensely bitter. Lingering pithy grapefruit hop flavor.

Mouthfeel - Extremely bitter. Medium body.

Overall - Well, it's advertised as brash, and it is. Harsh bitterness, but I don't mind it.

Appearance is very light yellow and slightly cloudy, looks more like a wheat ale.

Smell is very fruity and vibrant, greatly inviting.

After getting big whifs of fruit and hops in the nose, there is not much to speak about after that. Taste does not complement the smell of this brew. Slight citrus and dull hops, boring.

Mouthfeel is nothing to write home about, just bland.

Overall this is a tasty beverage, but not worth the $10 price tag or pain in the ass obtaining it.
