H.L. Rex Session Pale Ale

I have been in a bitter mood lately, so I’ve been spending a lot of time drinking Lowest Lord. But I thought I would mix it up a bit and try the H.L. Rex from Monocacy.

It gives off a bitter hop aroma when I poured it into my glass. Sure enough, the first taste is bitter grapefruit. But it mellowed out to a faint wheat taste on the back. I thought it had a sharply bitter aftertaste, but that quickly dissipates. Overall, a little too tart for my tastes, but not bad. I may want to go up to Frederick and hang out at Monocacy for awhile.
