Beer Homework #2: a bit of a heavy Westy, smooth yet carbonated, well made, full flavor/not overwhelming. There’s been a lot of ‘clear’ IPA’s being made these days, but this is certainly not one of them. Like the EBC ‘intentions’ on this one-Bueno!

Beer Homework #1: very subtle vintage Stone flavor, body/style throwback to the early/hearty/heavy IPA’s with a healthy amount of IBU’s. Something ‘poe’tic about having an OG IPA, that’s not Hazy, Westy, Clear, Hybrid, or whatever. Stay Liquid Stone! Ha

Saving the best for last (I hope). Nose is on point, A slight stray away from the typical GC TIPA, lighter/clearer flavor to it. But, as per usual, doesn’t disappoint. Crushable, tasty, & da best IPA of the bunch! ‘Casual’ is a spot on description of this

1st sip is pillowy soft-in the description mentions a lot of flavors & that is evident. My mouth is confused, Ha! I’m getting a Chardonnay flavor on da backend. Unique Hazy from GC. An experiment for ‘tomorrow’, but GC should have stayed in ‘yesterday’-Ha

They call this a ‘soft’ ipa, so I’m guessing it’s similar to a hybrid..., This is very comparable to the 1st taster I had ‘It Just Works’. Flavor is different, yes, but the overall style is ‘precisely’ the same. This is more buttery, lighter body. 3.85
