Featured Double Review – Grainwave and Indiewave IPA from Ceria

I have watched the progress of Keith Villa’s new beverage project and wondered what it would taste like. Lo and behold, I found a shop that had both Ceria “waves”. Grain and Indie.

GrainWave – Getting an orange juice, orange candy aroma.  Initial thought is orange juice concentrate watered down.  There is some spice but not enough to move the needle.  The blood orange is good but there isn’t much else here.  Take out the beer color and this is a seltzer.

IndieWave – This one tastes weird. Not bad but just does not meld. Not a noticeable hop aroma.  Getting a lot of grapefruit taste. Almost juice like. Decent bitterness but there is an odd malt taste in the back.
