Game Day Beer Review: Strand Brewing Company's 24th Street India Pale Ale
On draft (6.10% ABV). 24th Street pours a murky, reddish brown with a one fingered, white head that lingers and leaves behind a thick film. I get strong hops on the nose. It tastes first of citrus -- I'm tasting grapefruit, just like back home -- and then mellow west coast hops that linger on the tongue. It's not overwhelmingly bitter, just nicely so. The beer is relatively low in carbonation, and easy to drink. I give it an A-.
