In this beer blog, we are going to sample a new brewery to hit the Chicago market from Wisconsin. The brewery is called O’so Brewing and the beer is their Hopdinger. O’so Brewing was founded in a small town in Wisconsin and design to give the local people some good craft beer. They had some help from the Central Waters and Point Brewery and they are also good friends. It does not say when they were founded on their website but they are a pretty small brewery. O’so is in the town of Plover, Wisconsin. I wish I could find more on this brewery. Let us get into the beer.
This beer has a clear, constant bubbles, and copper color with a constant white head. The smell is a citrus to the beer. The taste of this pale ale is a sweet citrus and grapefruit together. The aftertaste is a dry citrus to the beer. Being a full body beer, it is pretty drinkable beer.
Here is a description from the beer bottle:
Pungent, Hoppy, Crisp, Floral, Bitter, Piney, Resinous, and Engaging

Here is a description from their website (www.osobrewing.com):
This pale ale is generously hopped yet balanced through the use of Munich and Crystal malts. Hops added after fermentation gives this American classic an intense aromatic bouquet. Enjoy! ABV: 6%, 49 IBUs, 14 SRM

In closing, this is not my favorite pale ale and it is just like the rest on the market. If I can get the same pale ale cheaper, I will pass this beer. I really hate to say it. This is a great beer but I just feel the price I am paying is not really worth it. If you love pale ales and think it is worth it, please, drink it and support this little brewery. I do recommend you trying this beer. I believe you will find the same thing I did about this beer. Please, let me know about your thoughts on this brewery. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
