Dust Bowl Brewing Co.
Style: Hazy IPA
Serving style: Bottles, cans and kegs (our sample from can)
Availability: Year-round in Northern California
Appearance: “Well, it’s cloudy, that’s for sure—is that the haze? The color is deeper than yellow. How about calling it apricot?”
Aroma: “It’s citrussy, but there’s more there. Something like pineapple or more exotic tropical fruits, maybe.”
Taste: “I like the fruit aspects. It should be a good summertime drink. It seems refreshing, but it isn’t too light. There’s some oomph there.”
Food Affinity: “I’d say maybe grilled chicken. Yes, some chicken or fish dishes, especially if they included fruit in the preparation.”
Guest reviewer Mandy Carter was actually wearing a tie-dyed T shirt the day we asked her to sample this beer. Mandy is now a fairly conservative office manager, but says she enjoyed rock concerts in Golden Gate Park back in the day.
