ANDERSON VALLEY HOP OTTIN’ INDIA PALE ALE

Billowy full-bodied white-headed IPA scores big points for originality and well-integrated ingredients. Dry pine-needled orange peel bittering and tangy tangerine-pineapple-cherry crisping decorate bitter oily hop scheme. Toasted baguette reminder aids subsequent rich mocha malting to bittersweet citric-grained finish. Brussels lace clings to glass sides, adding visual pleasantry to remarkably consistent brew. On tap, loud pine forest waft and faint banana illusions endure alongside tropical fruiting. Rivals Ipswich IPA for world supremacy.

ANDERSON VALLEY BROTHER DAVID’S TRIPLE ABBEY STYLE ALE

On tap, vinous grape-quince sourness juxtaposes cherry jubilee tartness, bruised orange tang, and candi-sugared sweetness of 10% alcohol feast. Clove, coriander, and banana underscore vanilla wafer pleasantry halfway through. Turbid bottled version allows creamier medicinal warmth and bourbon boozing to accelerate yellow apple, melon, and kiwi illusions propelling bruised cherry-banana-orange motif.

(ANDELOT) CUVEE MYSTIQUE

Unexpectedly frothy sienna-hued amber-highlighted ‘strong dark’ Belgian ale cascades to fleshy head, bringing creamy milk stout peculiarities such as decorative cocoa-chocolate sweetness and roasted nuttiness to loudly resonating raisin thicket. As glass empties, inconstant web-like lace forms and earthy astringency approaches.
