Beer 157 // Sol Juice by Skeleton Park Brewery

New brewery alert! This is not a drill. Today (July 29th), I was gifted a brew by a co-worker who happens to know the owner of Skeleton Park Brewery. I have to be honest and say, I have never tried this brewery before. So fingers crossed.

Here are the beer details:

Name: Sol Juice
ABV: 6%
Style: IPA
Tasting Notes: Dry as a bone and juicy as all get-out. Expect a big citrus aroma and flavour, coupled with delightfully subtle notes of lychee fruit. Bitterness is bold, yet not overpowering, making this a truly enjoyable India Pale Ale.

The pour is slightly on the darker side of golden. This is accompanied by plenty of white, bubbly, foam head. It looks solid enough, but I personally, miss clearer-looking IPAs. It is giving off big, bold, citrusy notes on the first whiff. This is a great sign and fills me with the classic IPA feels. The first sip is intense. And it luckily smooths itself out as you continue to drink it. A good hit of citrus. Which is quite heavy on the bitterness with the finish, it makes me want to have more and the beer flows rather quickly.

Overall this is a good beer for hot summer nights, patios and lazy afternoons. I do feel one can is enough. I couldn't see myself having more than one in an evening. But this is a good intro to the brewery and has me interested in trying some more, so that is a win for me.
