Rhyme & Reason - Advent Calendar Day 8

The Beer Advent Calendar Day 8 offering is the Collective Arts Rhyme & Reason Extra Pale Ale. It has 5.7% alcohol, 55 IBUs

I think I've mentioned before that Collective Arts makes some of my favourite IPAs, and this one is kind of the mid-point of their lineup, between the "State of Mind" session IPA and the big "Ransack the Universe".

I really love this beer. It's a cloudy medium yellow-orange with a light white head. The aromas are fantastic; white grapefruit, peach, orange, pine, and caramel. I could just smell it all day. The taste is crisp and clean with lots of grapefruit and a touch of pine and orange.

And here's a peek at the artwork on this particular can. This is Label #62 - Faces by Oleg Portnoy. You can see all of the artwork from Series 6 over at the Gallery. One of the cool things about Collective Arts beers is that you can scan the label with the Blippar mobile phone app and hear the music, view the videos and bios of the artists.

Be sure to stop by tomorrow to see what Day 9 has in store.
