BrotherGrendel (787) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 13, 2009
On draft at Obriens. Dark orange hue, thin whispy head, faint lacing, fair clarity. Nose is mild resin and grass with a modest bready malt presence. Flavor is moderate hop bitterness, light citrus and resin flavors, and sweetbread malts, grass and chalk in the middle dominated by buttering hops that persist through the dry finish. Medium body, med-high carbonation, chewy texture. Balanced IPA with bitterness dominating more than hop flavor, easy drinking and refreshing, a true west coast IPA!
