Approachable Bastard Session IPA
Evans Brewing has beer crafting beers in Orange County (CA) since 1994. Today I'm checking out their Approachable Bastard Session IPA. The label on the bomber has a hop-head (literally has a hop for a head) about to enter a beer festival, but perhaps all the German Fest celebrations are keeping him out?
Anyway, the label art on this and a few others from the brewery are spectacular, and I'll try to arrange a contest to giveaway some signed labels. 4.8% alcohol. 52 IBU.
Bright orange, lightly spicy aroma. Orange citrus and hints of tropical flavors come first. Tangy and lightly sweet to start with a distinct spicy and piney balance.
Good flavors, approachable. NOT so much any kind of bastard but for sure check it out!
