Prufrockstar (1980) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 11, 2014
3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Brouwer’s. Pours hazy gold, cloudy like Fresca. Aroma is big and piney, with citrus, grapefruit, a little dank, and even a bit earthy (aside: really, I’m picking up this moldy cheese thing in a lot of fresh ipas these days ... It’s here too, but everybody else just says "juicy" so I guess I’ll use that as my euphanism). Light body. Creamy. Reasonably dry. Carbonation is softer than expected, which comes across a shade thin, but nice and easy. Surprisingly muted bitterness in the finish (oh wait, there it is - takes awhile to build). Oranges and cream. Even just a little hint of roast / toast, like grass that’s just been lit up and is now smoldering. Overall: this is really nice!

On tap at Brouwer’s Cafe, pours a cloudy creamsicle orange with a small white head. Aroma brings out peaches, piney and floral hops. Flavour is dry and light, full of flavour, with loads of dry piney hops, and citrus zest. Highly drinkable and dry. Excellent stuff.
