Central Coast Catch 23
On tap from the brewery

Appearance: dark brown, very good lacing, and medium head.

Smell: rich hops, grain, and rye.

Taste: rich malty hops, slight chocolate, and a light rye finish.

Mouthfeel: medium.

Overall:
This is a nice brew. The hops are very pleasant and prevalent. The rye isn't very strong, but you can taste it in the background. 4.5

Pint on tap at THG. Reviewed from notes.

A: Served a woody dark brown color with a thick and long lasting cap of dark tan head that lasted almost the entire beer through. Sticky streaks of lace were left down the glass.
S: Mild biscuity malt up front is quickly overpowered by earthy and forest hops. Nice and piney with just a hint of roasted character.
T: Very clean IPA flavors of follow the nose. I taste hints of tropical hops which lingers along with that hint of roast from the nose. Rye is definitely toned down as I get very little spiciness.
M: Very clean and crisp mouthfeel, smooth, with tons of hop bitterness that lingers in the aftertaste. Creamy carbonation, super clean and crisp. Finishes dry. Medium body.
O: One of the best blacks ipas I've had. Very delicious. Almost no roast, and the sweetness is low. If I was blindfolded I probably would think this was just a normal ipa.

On tap at Central Coast Brewing in San Luis Obispo, CA.

Pours a super dark brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to a film on top of the beer. A foamy latticework of lace coats the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, rye, and herbal hop aromas. Taste is much the same with a roasty aftertaste. There is a medium herbal hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is drinkable and pretty tasty.
