On tap at Rebar – Lodi, extensively dry-hopped Old School West Coast IPA has become extremely popular nationwide. Subdued lemony grapefruit peel bittering joins tangy navel orange, tangerine and clementine conflux and mild pineapple, guava and mango illusions as buttery pale malt sugaring spreads all over delicate floral-daubed spicing. Sticky piney hop resin emerges at affable citric-spiced finish.
On tap at Ambulance, easygoing lemony orange peel tang and mild coriander spicing engaged by subtle banana-pineapple-peach illusions and salty herbal snips above slightly creamed vanilla-daubed honeyed wheat base. Approachable, balanced, winsome.
On tap at Growler & Gill, dry light-bodied Mexican lager drapes mild agave syrup atop dehydrated lime brining, spritzy lemon souring and wispy herbage as its corny Tortilla base flattens.
On tap at Plank Pizza, crisply clean bohemian lager relies on dry raw-grained minerality and salty floral herbage as grassy lemon-seeded astringency teases the musky finish.
On tap at Ambulance, refreshingly exhilarating golden-glowed NEIPA regales zestful lemony yellow grapefruit spritz for dank piney hemp resin and mildly creamed crystal malting. Tangy pineapple-peach-tangerine conflux, sweet cantaloupe encounter and bitter orange rind reminder add to the fun.
On tap at Ambulance (and named after a popular children’s picture book), dewy fig-spiced black lager malting provides fine initial impression for scaled-up German-styled schwarzbier. Bittersweet chocolate-seeded toffee spell quickly conquered by latent coffee-roasted burnt breading. Much neglected black lager category well served by this rangy moderate-medium body.
