Two regular dudes who happen to be huge fans of American craft beer.

Reviews have been few and far between lately as I have been busy at work (sob story), Rich has been out of town off an on, and we can’t coordinate a day to “work on the website.” So most the last few weeks has been solo beers: mostly home brews and duplicates as I haven’t been in the reviewing mood. Oh, one last reason: the weather is finally nice and I want to be outside!
What to drink when it is warm and humid in Chicagoland isn’t much of a debate: something lighter than used motor and a little hoppy (I don’t like to limit my beers any time). But, since the day was seasonally hot and humid, I wanted something equally big: a DIPA. Gandhi-Bot to the rescue.
Ghandi-Bot is an east coast beer that really has a lot of qualities of the west coast big DIPAs: pine and citrus with the grapefruit hops leaving a big hole in my tongue as they rot with their bitterness. The pour was nothing fantastic but the rest of the beer was. Enough malt to balance the hops and make for a big, yet refreshing late spring beer. Enjoy!
