New Member of a Hoppy Family

Full Sail delivers the newest member of the Brewmaster's Series releases: Grandsun of Spot IPA. This follows previous years' versions of basically the same IPA, with 2007's Sunspot IPA and 2008's Son of Spot. Now we get the grandson. Cute.

If you've had Full Sail's IPA before, you know it is not the most hop-forward IPA out there, which is kind of surprising considering Full Sail is a Pacific Northwest brewery. But their IPA is tamer, and is a good gateway IPA for those who are just getting into the better bitters. The Grandsun of Spot is at a much higher level in the the hop factor, with IBUs at 100, though is balanced by the Munich and honey malts. I found this 6%, $3.99 IPA at the new Sunflower Market at San Mateo and Academy (more on the new Sunflower's beer section soon).

I will try this, but honestly I have moved away from Full Sail. There beer is just an average taste for me now. Nothing that comes from here excites me any more. It is like the stale relation ship with my ex girl friend. Boring and limp.

"... Boring and limp." Funny, that is exactly what she said (about your dick)!!!
