Hi, friends. It’s been a while. Mister is workign nights so we’re rarely home to “share” a beer. I’m still cooking and we’re occasionally tasting but blogging has been low on the list. I miss it so I’m goign to work harder at making sure it happens.
Today’s taste is O’Fallon’s 5-day IPA. I know. An IPA. We are NOT IPA people. They’re too bitter for us.
This one has a surprisingly strong citrus nose. I was ready to dump it out before we started. I’m glad I didn’t.
It has a mild fruit flavor and bitterness. It isn’t that in-the-back-of-your-throat bitter that I can’t stand. It doesn’t taste like you’re sucking grapefruit juice right from the fruit. It’s well-balanced and mild (at least for an IPA). Mister agreed.
