4 Seasons IPA

I just spent three hours doing yard work. That totally sucked, but it did get me out of going to Chuck E Cheese's, which is one of the absolute worst places on earth. Not even on an empty Sunday morning can I stand the sight of that place.

Today I decided on 4 Seasons IPA brewed by Voodoo Brewery in Meadville, Pennsylvania. This one came back from my trip to Pittsburgh a month ago. The idea here is that Voodoo will brew four different IPAs, one for each season, with different hop and malt profiles to reflect the changing season. OK, not a bad idea. I am guessing this one is for summer as there are three people fishing from their boat on a lake on the front  label. I have been known to be wrong though.

Heavy citrus, mainly grapefruit and lemon, with some faint bread aroma behind that. The flavors are very lemony, to the point of puckering my mouth. Extremely astringent with medicinal alcohol just bullying the entire beer around. Strong carbonation, too. Seriously, this is like chewing a lemon peel. Finally, everything begins to taste sour in your mouth. No balance whatsoever and not very enjoyable.
