Finally, we get to the good stuff; drinking the beer.
There’s a faint grassy quality to the nose but its not overmuch and the beer overall? Pretty solid. Not too bitter and the malts hold up nicely.
I am pretty sure this beer would be called a pale ale ’round these parts. I probably didn’t add enough hops in secondary to really give it the kind of nose an IPA is expected to have, and it’s possible I should’ve added more hops in the middle of the boil but who cares! It’s good and that’s what matters.
