Hurray! Finally grapefruit in a beer other than IPA!
If I can sneak in a 2nd visit to Ecliptic, I will really want to see how this works out. I always think of grapefruit the way my Mom made it for me, sprinkled with brown sugar and not paired with the salt of a Gose.
It can take me awhile to process and put into words what a I have experienced. Especially with beer vacations. So while I string together some coherent thoughts, here are some photos from my recent trip back to the homeland…..
Talk about a cool and understated label with an intriguing beer from Ecliptic inside. The name is an inspired choice. Fits the brewery name and the season. Though, I have started seeing the nomenclature of Winter or Fall IPA’s on some beers and I hope this sub-set of a style gets some clarification. Otherwise we could be heading toward a free-fall come judging time.
