BELL’S HOPSLAM ALE

On tap at Ambulance, wonderful dry-hopped Imperial India Pale Ale with a ‘dollop of honey’ spreads its complexities all over the place. Floral grapefruit-peeled orange tang, zesty lemon briskness and sticky pine resin of a sharp-toned IPA spark the front end while dried-fruited apricot, plum and fig illusions plus tertiary pineapple-peach-tangerine snips soak into the dewy earthen mustiness ransacked by rummy vodka-licked Scotch malt assertiveness (leaving a boozy alcohol astringency upon the expansive finish).

MAGNIFY FLANNEL SEASON DOUBLE IPA

On tap at Morris Tap & Grill, sugary cinnamon-spiced cider frontage gains pumpkin pie sweetness while conditioned on lactose vanilla for off-the-beaten-path breakfast-styled IPA hybrid. Plastique Citra-Mosaic-hopped citrus waxing, wintry nutmeg-cumin-allspice seasoning and leafy autumnal foliage add further nuances without getting awkwardly obtuse. A liquified apple cider donut for sweet-toothed benefactors.
