|Georgetown Brewing | Seattle WA
Georgetown is on the up and up. No, not that one, I'm talking about the south Seattle neighborhood. When I lived up there it wasn't as hip. Now it's bustling with brew pubs and artists. Georgetown Brewing is one of the establishments that has helped to reshape this district, both physically and socially. I recently had the chance to enjoy their Lucille IPA.
Georgetown has done one hell of a job blending Columbus, Centennial, Amarillo, Simcoe and Cascade hops into a well-crafted IPA. The initial fragrance is a mixture of leafy-earth and citrus, creating a vibrant nose. A refreshing detour from those that smell too piney. On draught it settles into a golden-orange. Bitterness prevails early, lingering a bit before almost disappearing. It has a slippery quality to it, perhaps due to lower carbonation, which I liked. Lucille can be appreciated by hop-heads or the curious. Enjoy this IPA when given the chance. 7% | 85 IBUs
