Year of New Beer: Grunion Pale Ale, Ballast Point Brewing (CA)

Written By: Dion on 01/05/2016

Big grassy, herbal notes punch the nose, with lesser elements of citrus pith and light caramel. On the tongue, the herbal onslaught continues, joined by traces of chive and onion. Sweet malts and juicy citrus hit mid-palate to provide some balance as the brew heads to a slightly dry, bitter finish. I don't think this is quite as good as fresh Zombie Dust, but it's certainly an affordable, readily available alternative.
