Crux Fermentation Project Off Leash Northwest Session Ale
Hello beer lovers and welcome to another edition of the NorCal Beer Blog's brew review.
Tonight’s featured beer is Crux Fermentation Project Off Leash Northwest Session Ale.
From the Crux Fermentation Project website: “Debuted at an event that crowned our hometown, “Dog Town USA,” this light-hearted ale bounds with regional Citra, Centennial and Crystal hops for those citrusy notes beloved by Northwest hop hounds. We’ve nudged the malt bill in the other direction, for a sessionable ale that’s easy to love.”
Let’s get started!
Appearance: Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a white head and tons of lacing.
Aroma: Citrus and pine hops, biscuit and caramel malts.
Taste: Follows the nose, citrus hops up front, pale and caramel malts and a nice pine hop finish.
Overall: Crisp and clean, Crux Fermentation Project Off Leash Northwest Session Ale is enjoyable. This 4.5% ABV offering is extremely sessionable and delicious. Well done session ale!
