Whats in a GPA? The unadventurous say midterms, flashcards and all-nighters. We take a more radical approach. After all, who cares what you graduated with? Our GPA consists of subtle blend of bitterness accompanied by passion fruit, citrus and tropical fruit like aromas. Go ahead, enjoy this above average beer, because your intelligence can’t be refined in the classroom.

==Introduction==

Obtained this one from my friend Aaron Mendiola atBeerMetalDude.com. Along with the recent beers and cans I received, this one is from another new brewery I have not tried before. The style seems intriguing as it looks like they are using a German yeast strain and malts but also hopping it up to the pale ale status. Something I don’t think I have tried before, so I am definitely looking forward to it. Drink local, cheers!

Aromas:
Citrus, Grapefruit, floral and piney hops, tropical fruit notes of passion fruit, dragon fruit, biscuit bread, honey, caramel, stone fruit peach notes, coriander spice, cane sugar and oranges.

Flavors:
Citrus, Grapefruit, floral and piney hop, tropical fruits of guava, passion fruit, dragon fruit hints, pineapple, honeydew melon, biscuit bread, crackers, honey, caramel, coriander spice, pilsner grain, cane sugar, stone fruit peaches, lychees and mild berries.

Aftertaste:
Finishing with nice tropic fruits, stone fruit hints coriander spice, honey and citrus hops. No alcohol in the taste, Honey colored light to medium body, crisp, smooth and refreshing mouthfeel with an easy drinkability.

Overall:
A pretty good pale ale. I tried to find the aspects of a German that I would see in like a German Kolsh but the majority of the flavors are notes. Still a good and drinkable brew that would be good for the summer. Give it a shot if you find it. Cheers!

Anime Corner:
Nakamura Rio from Ansatsu Kyoushitsu was a character I found as I wanted to pair with the beer’s theme of being from school from the label and the chalk board. I did also happen to find a character that would pair with the colors of the beer and the flavors as well. This was a nice art piece.
