Notes/Commercial Description:
We teamed up with Alexandra Nowell of Three Weav3rs Brewing Co. to brew this citrusy IPA. Brewed with bohemian pilsener malt and dry hopped with Pacific Jade, Citra and El Dorado, then finished with Buddha's Hand and Pommelo zest,. Lemon Yellow in color, light to medium in body, with a striking aroma/flavor of grapefruit, apricot and magnolia flowers.

We have a different one here, my peeps.

Blonde like that girl in biology class that you would keep your peepers on rather than the Petri dish, and then there's an interesting dose of bohemian pilsner malt like, umm, German class.

Now, Raul wasn't digging his time in Frau Brown's German class, and if he had the choice, he'd take a brunette over a blonde any day of the week.

This beer... it's not bad. It's not great, it's simply an ok and unique approach at the heavily flooded IPA genre

Bomber purchased from the brewery, opened last week. Reviewed from notes.

Hazy pale pear with a modest but assertive white head that eventually recedes to a raised ring.

Big mango and lemon met by a strong streak of curacao. Notes of kaffir lime and a herbal tea sharpness leavens things nicely. Lovely and clean.

Taste follows the nose entirely. Moderately oily mouthfeel but body is on the lighter side for the ABV. Carbonation just sufficent to disperse the beer across the palate. Mild, cruisy bitterness.

Just a great smashable IPA from some guys who clearly know the gig.
