|Puta Pepper Sculpin IPA|
People say there’s no magic bullet. Actually, when you want to make a mediocre beer great, there is: nitro. Many people are familiar with the roiling, brown thunderhead found in a freshly poured Guinness but fewer people know that it is a nitro-infused tap that creates that thick, creamy concoction. And it’s not like it only works on Guinness; any beer can be put on nitro. In my college days there was a bar that had Odell’s Cutthroat Porter on nitro. Nowadays, every Thursday night, I get a pint of Left Hand’s Milk Stout on nitro at the bar where I get my quiz on. Calico, however, is the first nitro beer I’ve seen that isn’t a stout or porter. I had to give it a go.
