DECADENT DOUBLE WHIPPED BLACKBERRY CREAM POP

Well-designed lactic soured Imperial IPA celebrates sweet-tart blackberry influence with vanilla creamed sugaring nicely contrasting milk-soured yogurt acidity. Its lemon meringue tartness and key lime pie piquancy deepen the blackberry-soured midst, gaining tropical clementine, mango, passionfruit, pineapple and guava wisps and a hint of blueberry along the way.

DECADENT POG NOG DOUBLE INDIA PALE ALE

Vivacious dry-hopped hazy-glazed New England-styled IPA collaboration with Bronxville’s Beer Noggin (and brewed at Dorchester Brewing) succeeds as a Hawaiian Island “tropical jubilee.” Juicy orange-peeled pineapple and guava tanginess gains zesty lemon verbena, yellow grapefruit, clementine and mango resilience as brisk Seltzer-like carbolics add sparkle. Lovely fruitful frontage enjoined by crystalline juniper-like gin bite, softly spruce-tipped pine sap, creamy vanilla spicing and finishing resinous hop linger.

DECADENT FRENCH TOAST DOUBLE IPA

Luxuriant maple-sapped French toast entry gains doughy pancake battering and spicy cinnamon sugaring to contrast perfumed IPA-styled orange and grapefruit peel bittering as well as piney gin-soaked hop sharpness. Below the surface, sweet peach, mango, pineapple and nectarine illusions waver. Syrupy French Toast theme ultimately usurped by lingered citric acidity for entertainingly hybridized medium-bodied elixir.

DECADENT TROPICAL SMOOTHIE (STRAWBERRY VANILLA)

On tap at Taphouse 15, mild Madagascar vanilla beaning and subtler strawberry creaming casually hidden behind brash piney fruited IPA styling. Sharp orange-peeled grapefruit, peach, papaya and pineapple tang gains zesty lemon spicing above mildly syrupy crystal-caramel malting. Beneath the surface, strawberry vanilla sweetness stays too soft to properly contrast woody citric hop bittering.

DECADENT ALES IRISH COFFEE

On tap at Ambulance, fantastic St. Patrick’s Day Celebrator aged in whiskey barrels with cold-brewed coffee and Madagascar vanilla beans penetrates deeply with its smoothly creamed Irish coffee warmth. Spiced black chocolate, caramel latte, hazelnut crème, dark toffee and crème brulee illusions elevate luxurious whiskeyed coffee prominence above teasing hop-charred bitterness. Elegance personified by newly minted Mamaroneck brewer.
