Ballast Point Grunion Pale Ale. Ballast Point Brewing, San Diego, California. 5.5% ABV.
Clear, golden hued, solid slab of egg-white head atop.
In the nose: bold and citrus-y. Lemon and grapefruit. Just right.
In the mouth: Starts out sweet, then quickly turns to the bitter, and malt catches up with hops. Lean bodied, light and quenching. Citrus hop flavors cling to the palate and remain prominent throughout. Long, hoppy finish. Smooth and lovely. Hey, this is my kind of pale ale.
Refreshing and delicious.
Good one, and you know what you can do with it. Drink up, friends.
