crisp and refreshing IPA exploding with fresh hop character, named for a somewhat forgotten yet amazing hop variety named Crystal. A unique hopping program gives this beer a massive, clean bitterness and fresh hop aroma bursting with hints of citrus and fresh fruit.

nearbeer (5636) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 7, 2017
12 oz. canned 08-22-2017. Mostly clear amber-golden brew has nice legs and a sticky meringue on top. Nose is caramel, resinous herb, papaya, lemongrass and a touch of green banana. Maybe some tea leaf as well. Flavors of the same mix plus a bit of white pepper and crisp toasted grain. Mint and woody hops developing later in the finish. Light-medium body has medium fizz and an easy drinking dry slant. Thanks to Party Bob once again for another treasure trove delivery of Chicago brews not available in my region!

tfontana (1148) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 9, 2017
Can pour into barrel glass from Redstone Liquors, Stoneham. Appearance is clear amber with minimal sparkle, 3-finger width rocky foam white head with fair retention and tons of soapy lacing. Aroma is citrus over tropical fruit, with malt base. Taste is citrus, grapefruit, tropical fruit, mild resin. Palate is light-to-medium bodied with thin texture, average carbonation and mix of sweet and bitter finish. Overall, decent complexity, particularly to the taste, and balance between sweet and bitter.

Clear, golden pour with a foamy, white head. The aroma has fruity, citrus hop notes. It has a medium body with slightly oily texture and lively carbonation. The taste is bittersweet with a little more bitterness in the finish. Very tasty and refreshing.

JPDIPSO (6293) - Wauwatosa, USA - SEP 10, 2017

Golden to light amber in color. Taller, fluffy light beige head. Earthy citric scents. All the citric fruit seems to represent, with grapefruit, lemon and orange. Mild hints of pale malt. Fuller feel, with a soft effervescence. Really nice. Light pale malt mingles with a mildly acidic tide of zest. Very easy drinking, balanced brew. Dangerous, too easy to drink.

Can from Merchants. Aroma is fruity, tropical, sweet mango juice, slight malt, pine, slight citrus, good. Appearance is golden amber, light tan head, mostly clear. Taste is pine, malt, citrus, bitter, tropical fruit, not as fruity as I hoped. Mouthfeel is light to medium body, light crisp carbonation, piny malty bitter aftertaste. Overall, it’s tasty, but I thought it was gonna be better.
