In this beer blog, we are going to get into yet another IPA from Short’s Brewery. It is Dan’s Pink Skirt American India Pale Ale. If you read my earlier beer blog posts on their beers, you know the history of this Michigan craft brewery. If you have not, please, read them to get to know this craft brewery. Let us get into this IPA.
It has a cloudy golden to yellow color with a nice foamy white color head on this India Pale Ale. The aroma has a slight citrus notes. The taste has a nice light carbonated notes with some citrus notes. The aftertaste has a dry bitter finish. It is pretty drinkable beer.
Here is a descriation from their website (www.shortsbrewing.com):
Dan’s Pink Skirt is an American IPA brewed with Summit and Simcoe hops. Malt characteristics are mild and practically undetectable in the nose. Dan’s Pink Skirt has pronounced floral and citrus aromas, with a pine resin hop bitterness that attacks the palate.

In the end, how many IPA’s and how many seasonals does a craft brewery really need to pumped out in the market. This is has been the aged old question in the craft brewery. If you make all these beers, is your product still good. I believe you are good at a few things and have to work on other things. It is pretty sad when a seasonal IPA is better than their everyday IPA. This is my thought and I know many would disagree with my thought pattern. I believe this craft brewery makes way too many beers and it makes it tough for them make good beers. I know there is many that would disagree with that thought. I just feel their seasonals are so much better than their everyday beers. I love this IPA and this is their best IPA. There is a nice balance from the hop bittest and malty backbone. They did a great job on this beer. If you can get a bottle, go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
