Lacquered wood tones soak lemony grapefruit-peeled orange rind bittering and floral-spiced over celery-watered pale malt dryness. Juicy citrus zest glides thru the clean pine-needled midst. Tertiary peach, pineapple and mango illusions add further tropical splendor.
On tap at Ambulance, juicy tangerine tang gains zesty lemon spritz above crisp pilsner malting for sessionable IPA. In the can, despite its hazy moniker, this ain’t no New England-styled IPA since its clear amber hue and moderate body go against the grain. Floral citrus zesting gains proper hop astringency over dry pale malts. Spritzy lemon fizz awakens mild grapefruit-orange tang by the finish.
On tap at Ambulance, soft-toned kolsch rounds up subtle grassy-hopped mandarin orange, tangerine and clementine tang as well as raw-honeyed herbage for pilsner-malted white wheat bottom.
On tap at One Mile House, interesting 2016 bourbon barrel aged strong ale blends candi-sugared Belgian dark ale with smokey amber ale picks up vinous oaken red wine overtones to balance against caramel-burnt milk chocolate sweetness. In the backdrop, rum-spiced whir contrasts dry Scotch whim. Complex.
On tap at Ambulance, unconvincing soft-toned dessert beer lacks proper lactic caramel syruping to reinforce thin sea-salted ice cream theme. In the distant backdrop, caramelized peanut, brown chocolate and vanilla illusions ride alongside wispy black grape, blackberry and raspberry fruiting as barley-roasted sea salting fades.
