I’m revisiting the Sunshine OPA from Fort George. The first time I tried it, this beer was sort of off balance, but it was super fresh because I bought a four pack the first day they were available. I had another can last week, and this is the last one. There is a hint of citrus hops I didn’t remember. I’m still a little overwhelmed by the bitterness, but I taste more of the biscuity malt. But so bitter.
Fort George just started canning their oatmeal pale ale, Sunshine. At the store someone asked me if it was like a hefeweizen. For some reason Sunshine sounds like a wheat beer. When I poured it, Chelsea said it looked like Blue Moon, super orange Just so you know, Sunshine is not a wheat beer. It’s bitter up front and full of citrusy hops. It’s not quite an IPA. It’s bitter but backed up with a hint of vanilla and caramel. It reminds me of Hair of the Dog’s Ruth, super bitter and super sweet with no transition in between.
