On Tap

Churchill's Pub & Grille
San Marcos, CA

A very drinkable IPA, though it lacks complexity. It's a very leafy, herbal IPA. Lots of earth and dirt-like hops, though the flavors come together nicely. Unique in that way. Mild pine character as well. This was a welcome accompaniment to the Almanac Dinner at Churchill's, but certainly didn't steal the show. No need to revisit, though I'm glad I had a couple glasses of this.

On tap at Library Alehouse for a tap takeover with 9 offerings.

A: Pours a clear orangish yellow with a thin (1/4") white head which leaves stringy lace.

N: Grapefruit/citrus with herbal notes. Very fresh and bright hops. Wonderful aroma.

T: Pine dominates with some malt for balance.

M: Medium body and carbonation. Bitter and dry finish.

O: Fairly straight forward and basic IPA with a nice smell of fresh hops. If you see this, then get it.

From 750 mL bottle to nonic pint glass

A: Copper-tan in color, opaque, a gentle pour forms a small sudsy head that never fully recedes.

S: Floral, sweet bouquet. Wet-hopping yields a dank, grassy aspect and the malt-backbone seems large.

T: Strangely malt-forward, sweet, but grainy and grassy. Hops are definitely floral, with subtle citrus notes amongst the earthy profile. Strong notes of tea pop up toward the finish, and the 7.5% alcohol isn't masked. Flavors are kind of a mess, not harmonizing at all. The hops are strictly bitter at the long finish.

M: Medium-heavy bodied, oily and well carbonated.

Flavor profile is disjointed, and I'm not a big fan of IPA's whose distinctive note is green tea. So far I'm liking their sours, but not jumping up and down for their other styles.
