Hermitage Brewing Company, San Jose, CA

I stopped in at Hermitage Brewing Company in San Jose, California.  I tasted the Maltopia Scotch Ale and it finished a bit more bitter than I prefer.  I also tasted the Single Hop Citra IPA which was delicious.  And I ordered a 408 Session IPA that I thoroughly enjoyed.  Smooth IPA with just the right bitterness.  Not too much alcohol which means you could drink a few of these.  Almost smooth.  Very Nice!

I stopped in at Coronado Brewing Company in Coronado, California and enjoyed their Guava Islander Tropical IPA.  I enjoy IPA’s and I really enjoy guava.  Combining these two is a real treat.  And, my wife, who typically doesn’t like beer, tasted this and liked it.  There’s nothing wrong with that.

I returned (3/29/18) with industry colleagues for dinner.  The Grilled Wahoo Fish Tacos are delicious!  Their Coco Chaos IPA was delightful!  I solid IPA with a hint of coconut flavor.  Enough coconut to taste it but not overpowering.  Great beer!
