Life On Tap Episode #276: Rare Trait

Dan received this delicious sample of Cerebral Brewing Rare Trait from friends Jeff earlier during the pandemic.

Cerebral Brewing Rare Trait

STYLE: New England-style IPA
INGREDIENTS: Citra, El Dorado, and Mosaic hops
ABV: 6.4%
AVAILABILITY: 16-Ounce Can, Draft (Year-Round)

Stats above taken from the brewery’s can and website.


Deep orange in color, with a plump, frothy head.


Apricot, peach, and tropical fruit including passion fruit…intoxicating.


Tropical and stone fruit notes continue with citrus hitting hard after.


Wheat and oats contribute to a round and velvety mouthfeel with zippy carbonation.


Delicious and drinks like a session beer, though on the higher side. Food-wise, I was feeling tagine at the time thinking the fruit and spice notes would provide a harmonious blend on the palate.

Thank you so much to Jeff and Chris for sharing this during the pandy.

Cheers and remember:

Life’s a tap…drink up ’til it’s dry.

All music on this show came to us from the now defunct Music Alley.
