On tap at Hoover’s Tavern, expressively variegated but blindingly exhaustive flavor-wise, Philippine Ube Halaya yam dessert knockoff brings subtle lactic almond-milked coconut sweetness to vanilla-daubed purple yam adjunct (and a red cherry on top). Yet its sharp orange-peeled grapefruit bittering, with mild pine lacquering and dainty floral-perfumed spicing, peaks higher than its marshmallow-sugared yam jam.
On tap at Tavern 5, lactose-aided IPA integrates tangy peach pureed vanilla sedation with briskly sharp orange-peeled grapefruit zesting and piney hop oiling in lightly creamed caramel malt setting.
On tap at Hoover’s Tavern, lactic-soured blueberry tartness settles softly atop wispy Graham Cracker base. Blueberry compote gains zesty lemon spot and vinous green grape licks, but piney hop lacquering nearly undermines fruity aspect.
Dry orange-grapefruit spritz remains pallid over grassy astringency. Timid Cascade-Citra-Mosaic hop conflux lacks distinction and wispy white bread spine dissipates.
