Ghidorah (Beer Camp Double IPA) ~ Sierra Nevada Brewing Company

Appearance: orange with honey hues. Pithy head is fluffy, clumpy, and patchy. Rests with a gentle haze. Swirls blotchy with sticky lace and a patchy blanket.

Nose: grapefruit, lovely grapefruit – white mostly with some yellow. zest, skin, and lemon. Grapefruit pulp and juice – freshly squeezed. Pine and spearmint in the back. Key lime is a subtle suggestion. Seviche finish of fresh citrus juices amidst sea breeze essence.

Palate: grapefruit, key lime, and lemon hits hard and fast, leading into pine needles and hop resins. Pith and rind – take above fruits and rind away. Deliciously simple.

Final Thoughts: not overly complex but the flavors were bright, rambunctious, and eager to please.
