this beer was just slightly sweet but was hoppy and would like to give the brewer thumbs up

Hooray for new brewery! Now I will hope this gets a bit of work done for future batches - thought it maybe too hefty on malt, slightly undercarbonated and hoppy, but not quite as forward as i would hope in an IPA (but that goes back to the maltiness) .Here’s to the future.

(FIRST!) Exciting to see these guys already in production. I had this one on tap at the Black Sheep Lounge, one of the first two bars to get the beer. Clear amber-orange in the glass with a very small head. The nose is solid grapefruit hops with a little caramel malt. Flavor is strongly bitter, also citrusy. Hops definitely dominate this beer all around, but there’s still enough malt sweetness to make it drinkable. Seems to be a little flat - maybe the brewers are still working on their QA a bit. In any case, a very nice beer for the first release from Thirsty Planet. I’ve got some good hopes for the rest of their lineup.
