Indian Wells Raspberry Ale

Type: ale, flavored beer
Origin: Inyokern, California
Price: $7.99 per 6 pack

The woman and I bought this 6 pack a few weeks back, I think the day after an overly oppressive San Diego IPA evening. I remember actually craving this, and we did pound out all but 1 of these that night, and I've just now gotten around to drinking the final one. The beer itself is not too bad. The raspberry flavor is pretty artificial and overpowering. The website says that this beer starts as the Desert Pale Ale, and then it is flavored with fresh raspberries, which I completely see. There is an underlying quality bitterness that you would never expect from a flavored beer.
