Villager was my first introduction to FP, and I was pretty stoked as you can see from my knob-slobbering. But I am even more stoked now, and am having trouble finding enough knob to slob, because this is a fantastic beer that edges towards Grunion in shonkability and flavor. Magnificent balance of wheat and Citra hops that begs you to kill the entire 6-pack and not share any with your wife or friends. It's understated yet complex, soft on the tongue but intensely hop-bittered with an incredible aromatic presence. It's one of those beers that is so well done you instantly forget about all the sub-par offerings by the myriad ale slingers in Cali these days. So, I'm looking forward to taking down a bunch of these after a long sesh at Planet Granite. There will definitely be some hardcore chilling at Crissy field.

All aboard the Shonk train.
