On tap at Tustin Brewing Company in Tustin, CA.

Very very impressed with the guys at Unsung. Like Truffaut during the 60’s, all they make are hits. Now, I would t call this a “The 400 Blows” beer (and yes, Raul does know that that was made in 1959) but it’s a solid beer nonetheless. It’s pure West Coast like your little brother tripping on acid at Coachella. Beautiful West Coast hops meet a clean bitterness that is might fine in my book.

Yep!

Clear golden nectar. White, loose fluffy head bursts northward, hovers, and then quickly changes course. What's left is a smattering of white clumps of bubbles.
Aroma is crisp, pithy grapefruit initially. Some bright floral citrus notes come through after the grapefruit flexes.
Taste is bordering juicy, but still definitely bright. Orange zest, grapefruit (less pithy at first, comes back later), a malt base that has an orange blossom honey nuance to it. And I dare say, I'm almost convinced of a Jasmine flower note.
Mouthfeel is on the lighter side, carbonation contributes a nice activity throughout. Finishes slick.
Overall, quite refreshing. Unsung has another hit.
