I know Mike from GCB reads these posts so I want to assure him this beer was consumed when Calypso was pouring at the brewery 2-3 months ago. It just took me that long to pull together the photo, info, etc. Calypso is another in a series of single hop pale ales from Garrison City, you can read about the others here; Mosaic, Galaxy and Citra. Galaxy and Citra continue to be my favorites but all are solid beers.
Appearance is a little lighter than the others with a nice white head that left plenty of lacing. Aroma was mild with a bit of tropical fruit. Taste was great with a nice malt base, some tropical and peach flavors coming through. Lots of flavor for a relatively low ABV beer and a slightly bitter crisp finish make this one super drinkable.
Overall really enjoyed this beer but the Calypso hop just doesn’t pack the same punch as Citra or Galaxy. Still worth a shot when it comes back around.
