On tap at Growler & Gill, sessionably soft-toned IPA brings candied pineapple, grapefruit and orange tartness to musty rye-malted pilsner oats. Nelson Sauvin hops add ancillary green grape tannins and wispy peach-mango-tangerine tanginess to excellent moderation.
On tap at Ambulance, decadent sweet-milked espresso entry gains caramel-honeyed sugaring and smoked molasses reminder to contrast mild hop char of impressive (9% ABV) breakfast stout. Quaint espresso finish soaks up light peat, cocoa and prune snips.
On tap at Ambulance, audacious red wine-barreled oats-fortified winter warmer not clearly defined. Tannic red wine esters barely register as mildly acidic wild yeast saddles its sweet ‘n sour fruiting. Inconspicuous “cantaloupe rind, pear and mango” illusions warble by candied lemon tartness and gin-teased grapefruit juicing. Musky corn-liquored pilsner malt spine seems outta place.

On tap at Ambulance, minimal sweet potato influence upended by dark chocolate chalking and burgundy grape tartness. Light earthen musk underlines modest chocolate-caked sweet potato smear.

On tap at Ambulance, briskly clean Mosaic-hopped yellow grapefruit and orange rind bittering receives tart lemon spritz while retaining coniferous Simcoe-hopped pining. Dry oats-flaked rye malts and floral-spiced herbage backup tangy citrus-pined finish.
On tap at Ambulance, turbid yellow-glazed IPA hybrid (in collaboration with Brooklyn’s Other Half) lets yellow grapefruit tang surface above mild rye-spiced oats and spelt-dried malts as wispy lactic sourness flutters.
On tap at Ambulance, exquisite sweet-spiced citrus tang spreads across creamy crystal malt sweetness to contrast dankly resinous Simcoe-hopped lupulin powdering. Sunny Citra-hopped grapefruit and orange peel spritz picks up candied peach-pineapple illusions. For daintier hop-heads.
