1723rd Review on BA
Bottle to Woodshop Snifter
Shared at Herbies party, not sure by who.
App- This was along the lines of please excuse me, A pee yellow after being a bit dehydrated. A good amount of yellows and golds. Really no head to speak of. More just a 1/8" of bubbles around the edges.
Smell- I was hoping for some diamond in the rough IPA from So.Cal. Not so much. More pure malts in the glass with a slightly earthy and grainy nose with some butter behind it.
Taste- This one was just better than average and really didnt do all that much for me. A slightly off grainy flavor with some grass clippings and a little unbalanced hops to it. A slightly buttery hop flavor as well.
Mouth- A slightly dense medium body with a medium carbonation. Way too grainy and grassy without a balance. A bit of buttery hops and grass clippings remain.
Drink- Better than average, but would have to have this on tap vs. bottle next time.

Feeling crazy, drinking straight from the bottle, so can't say what the "color" is...but have to report this offering represents the SoCa "West Coast" IPA scene very well! My bottle has 6.5% Abv (not 7+% as Ba states), not that it matters, as it makes an excellent session brew and one I'm currently enjoying...in-laws and all!

This is about as close to Sculpin as a beer can get. In fact, I'm pretty sure the brewer from Ironfire used to work at Ballast. Similar overall aroma and smell, with maybe slightly less aroma than really fresh sculpin and maybe a touch more bitterness. Overall a pretty nice IPA.
