Odell Brewing Company Friek, 750 ml, 6.5% ABV. A fizzy, quickly-dissipating head. The fresh raspberries added before blending mix in just a touch of sweetness with the expected tart. Nice dry finish. I think Odell just gets me.

Deschutes Brewery Fresh Squeezed IPA, 12 oz., 6.4% ABV, 60 IBUs. Does Deschutes make an IPA that I don’t like? [Note to self: move bottle cap to the focal point next time.]

Brooklyn Brewery Brooklyn Sorachi Ace, 750 ml, 7.6% ABV, 34 IBUs. I didn’t expect the dry, slightly tart finish, but that is far from a complaint. Perhaps it’s from the champagne yeast added during secondary fermentation?
