Neat! There were a couple parties at that table. Were you in a party of 2 or 3?
Drive safe, folks.
It was just my wife and I, sitting on the little bar seating area as you walk up the stairs to the upper seating level.
Dude....we were face to face talking to each other yesterday waiting for the bathroom. I was wearing the Beach City shirt. Lol.
Hit up Honey Wagon in Tehachapi and try their passion fruit XPA...yes, seriously, Tehachapi. It's the closest I've found on the West Coast that.matches the mouthfeel of the Trillium beers and has that tropical hop profile.
Back on topic, love KRBC. Jealous of those that got some Dirty Hippie and Class X. Loved the growler of Think Tank #7 a friend brought me a week ago. I found Hop Nookie far too boozy when I had it last month, much prefer Notorious or PtY which hide the ABV better. Nevertheless, looking forward to the KRBC expansion, love what they're doing and wish them nothing but success.!
I'm enjoying the Citra(ness) more out this bottle than on draft. Could it be because of the new Citra tulip glassware?
Citra was delicious. Class X was delicious (it's gone now). I think I like Shuttle Bunny more than Citra though.
Hah! I always imagined you'd look like the dude from Tangerine Dream for some reason...and that you'd be carrying a sniper rifle. Not sure why.
Glad I finally kinda got to meet you. Let's make it more official next time!
People complaining about a two pint limit on Citra sound like they're wirting a bad Yelp review.
Damnit. I saw you walking around. I hadn't checked the thread. I was at the high top right by the bar. Wearing the 'orange' Fall IPA Faction shirt.
Good times! Citra was great. Class X was tasty, a bit thin though, I expected a bit more from it.
Really enjoyed the food, great time, and for me, it was very low key. I'm use to larger crowds though.
What? I hope that was just for the weekend and it will be back for next weekend.
Maybe. It ran out sometime Saturday night though.
Had a glass around 9pm. So sometime after that. I thought it was a little thin in body. Maybe it was at the bottom?
Yeah it ran out around then. It was thin. It's usually thin. I don't know if they ran it through nitro this time but sometimes they do that.
They were limiting the amount of Class X being poured each day to make it last, and yes it was served on nitro as always. In my mind this batch of Class X was a bit young. It does better when in the barrel longer and they only keg off a barrel at a time.
That makes sense. I didn't realize they rationed it as well. I thought the flavor was on point this time. Had more of a chocolatey smores quality to it than the last couple of times I've had it.
my theory- because we go and have several pints of citra and other ipas and just completely palate wrecked that the smooth sweet class X tastes like a whole different thing. i agree as a standalone though
i feel so full
...long live the Dream!
Was there yesterday at 11am. Class X was still pouring (had a glass). Citra was still flowing as well.
Came back from KRBC yesterday and yes they still had Class X on tap. It wasn't as good as I expected, a bit boozy and thin.
When I was up there last year, they had Class X on nitro. Is it still on Nitro now?
Every time I've had class x it's been on nitro. I spoke with Eric and he said they had carb problems with it in the past and they choose to go with N2. I would love to have class x with CO2 so it had the mouthfeel of class 5. Think class x really misses chewiness to round it out.
I didn't have it on nitro, but I overheard it was being served at one point. It would definitely give Class X that needed boost.
That was my only complaint about otherwise a pretty great beer. Thanks for clearing that up!
So anyone else been up mid week?
As of last night, Class X was still on, TT was off.. Citra tasted awesome to me, never had it before. Really enjoyed the food too.
Totally missed the boat on the Class X. As it turns out this is from a 'lost' barrel that is 18 months old. They've been putting 5 gals on tap every day until it's gone. The latest batch of Class X was just recently put in barrels and is 6 months out until release.
Citra in So Cal would be great. How's the expansion and distribution going?
Big thanks to those who recommended the alternate route up to Kern from LA. Beautiful rides and a killer weekend all around.
Citra is so good, havent had it in about a year. consistancy is doing good i guess
So when's the next release? Did anyone ask Kyle how the expansion will affect the Citra release schedule?
Next release should be sometime in Feb. Last word on when they start brewing in the new brewery is December. That would mean they will be brewing Citra for the Feb release and according to Kyle it will be distro'd to SoCal in Feb. Fingers crossed.
I live out in Riverside, I only see Just Outstanding, Class V, and Sequoia Red, I've never seen Citra, but when I do definitely picking up a few bottles
Shit, for the last few years JO has been a ghost in L.A. I do remember the days of Citra showing up. Oh, that was fun. People going apeshit for Pliny and just picking off Citra from the shelf with ease.
Yes. Looking for elder and finding citra on the shelf at Total. But that didn't last long at all. What I haven't seen at all is Class V. Only on draft at KRBC. I'd always pick up a bottle or 2 when it was available. A great stout at 8.
Dat shuttle bunny doe....
