For beer number something on the day, I grabbed another of the Cigar City beers the in-law got for me. This one, I was excited for. It is a craft brewed IPA, so this should be awesome. I wanted to enjoy a decent beer with my steak dinner.
This time around, I used a washed-by-me glass glass to pour it into. It was a light amber colour with some floaties swimming around. Right away I could smell cascade hops, and right away I was excited. The more I sniffed, the more I smelled grapefruit and something else.
At first, it tasted amazing; sweet up front, bitter in the booty. As I ate my steak, however, it started to get sweeter and sweeter to the point where it was pretty much like watered down grapefruit juice.
It had a great name, it was a great style, it has so much potential. I’m sad I didn’t like it more.
