What Jeff's Drinking Now

I've been transitioning away from the bourbons, ryes, and Scotches that winter “forces” me to drink. Last month, I talked about DC’s own Green Hat Gin. This month, let’s get further into warmer weather drinks.

There’s nothing quite like sitting out in the sun and having a nice beer. 
My choice this spring so far has been San Diego’s Ballast Point Sculpin IPA. This is a great example of a California IPA. Obviously, there are hops, but these provide a grapefruit/citrusy edge to the beer. While the hops add a bitterness to the beer, there’s enough malt in the mix to add just enough sweetness to make this one of my favorite IPAs I've ever tasted.
