Had this af the Cloverleaf on Sunday, having never tried anything from Caton brewing before. I liked this a lot and although it wasn't a terribly strong or memorable beer, the grapefruit flavor and the easygoing nature of it led it to go down pretty quickly. It' s not often that something new grows on me so quickly!
This beer had a nice, blonde hue to it as it settled into my pint glass, as it had a cloudy appearance to it and a nice head that took a while to settle. There was quite a bit of good lacing as well, as I made my way through this, as this beer had a thicker consistency than other IPA's that I've enjoyed. Lots of grapefruit was also in the taste, with a dry mouthfeel and a bit of a herbal aftertaste like tea. The alcohol led itself to a nice warming effect here but couldn't really be detected in the taste at all, and the hops were not strong or earthy here either.
The strength of this beer was matched by it's taste - understated, present, and nicely balanced. While not on par with Dogfish Head or those from the West Coast, I enjoyed this a lot because of it's slight dryness, and lingering citrus taste. A good offering to have on tap and worthy of having my zip code as part of it's name, I may give this a go again before the Summer is up. A must-try for any local hopheads and IPA lovers!
