Season's change, and so do I
I'm starting to see, and feel, the change of Summer into Fall.  I'd much rather have Summer all-year-round, but I'm also looking forward to my 'Oktoberfest/Märzen's', Stouts, and Porters for the cooler, colder months ahead.
Here's to moving on. Cheers!

pFriem Family Brewing - Hood River, OR USofA
IPA (7.2% ABV)

I saw these bottles around town at a few establishments and I decided to give them a shot. It's a relatively new brewery started in 2012, keeping family the focus of the whole operation. I like their style, so let's find out if I like their beer.

Pours well, golden straw in color and frothy at the end of the pour. The head is short lived, laces well, and reduces to a thin film atop the brew; releasing a fair amount of citrus hop aroma with an underlying thickness to it. The flavor is very much the same, with the thick malt sweetness laying a firm foundation for the hops to build on. And build they do. The mix of the viscous sweet malt and the bitter citrus is a winning combination that sticks with you in a good way. The finish bites hard and kicks off the aftertaste with a bang, launching the hops into overdrive as they mingle with the alcoholic burn.

I like this beer, a lot. It's a quintessential West Coast IPA that takes all the tradition of a typical IPA and makes it big and strong enough to get to India... The long way around.

Final Verdict: Highly Recommended
