Thank you too Jon! I drank mine both last night! Excellent representation of a West Coast IPA!Backslide said:
Thanks Jon, it was a sold IPA!
Are you well versed in craft beers? I wouldn't imagine a watermelon wheat beer to be bitter. Wheat doesn't usually lend bitterness to a beer. Usually it adds a wheaty, yeasty quality. Back when I considered myself a Bud Light man, any non-lite beer came across as bitter. From Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, down to Sam Adams Boston Lager, to Bass Ale and Newcastle. They all had way more bitterness than I was used to. That's because beers like Budweiser and Coors aren't hoppy in the least and offer very little. It's not that the new beers I was trying were super hoppy, it's just that I wasn't used to tasting hops at all because the beers I was used to didn't have any.Kxthor911 said:Had a Summer Sandia - Watermelon Wheat beer today. It was ok but a little to bitter for me, especially when you think of a watermelon beer being slightly sweet. The flavor had some good sweet hints but to much bitter. I even switched glasses at one point and that seemed to help a little just not enough. Maybe its the wheat that I'm finding to be bitter. Oh well, another one for the chalkboard.
That is one fine beer.Backslide said:
