Season Everything I'm a big fan of Gordon Ramsay and he always says you can't add a seasoned component to an unseasoned component and have the combination be magically seasoned. For example, if you are making chili, cook and season the ground beef and cook and season the vegetables, then combine.
Named after the purple flowering trees common in southern California, Jacaranda is a wonderfully fruity IPA. The overwhelming fruit note is grapefruit but not like grapefruit sculpin. It's an IPA first with just notes of grapefruit as well as pine. I personally love this IPA and have visited the brewery several times. Claremont Craft Ales is just beginning to break out and I fully expect it to be a big name in craft brewing. Not sure if you can get this beer in your area but it's all over the place in southern California. Don't hesitate if you see this beer in a store near you!
