Just in time for Earth Day, a CCOF-certified organic double IPA from Humboldt County. Sustainably-brewed beer? Awesome. But how does it taste?

Earth Thirst pours warm orange with a creamy head that falls fast, but sticks around. Not much on the nose: a dash of malt and warm sugar and a faint suggestion of forests. Pine needles on the tongue. Scrubbing Bubbles carbonation. Malty. Bitter finish. Too much residual bitter–and I like bitter. Drinkable, but lacks a certain je ne sais quoi.
