Brouwerij West Picnic Lightning IPA
Our first drop from California's Brouwerij West in a couple years as they are in town for Oxbow's Pils and Love Festival. A brewery that started out with mostly Farmhouse Ale's and mixed ferment Saison's, these guys are now getting lots of attention for their IPA's. This one is putting up a 4.1/5 on Untappd, here is the description from the brewery: "Always ready to ride, Picnic Lightning gallops across your palate with unrelenting notes of citrus, stone fruit, and pine through the use of Citra, Simcoe, and Centennial hops. Smooth from start to finish, Picnic Lightning's soft, velvety mouthfeel is obtained through the use of Malted Barley, Oats and Raw Spelt." A West Coast brewery's take on a New England style IPA.
