Drake’s Brewing Alpha Session NorCal Bitter
Tonight’s featured beer is Drake’s Brewing Alpha Session NorCal Bitter. Last Friday night I had the distinct pleasure to work Drake’s First Friday for my kids’ school. The staff at Drake’s Brewing is incredible and they prove yet again how cool the brewing industry is. After having a couple pints of Denogginizer I was encouraged to try Alpha Session…and I am SO glad I did!
Let’s get started!
Aroma: Smells amazing! Huge hop presence (Citra and Simcoe), citrus and pine and a light sweet pale malt scent in the background.
Taste: Hop forward with grapefruit, tangerine and pine and the slight flavors of pale malt.
