ELLICOTTVILLE PANTIUS DROPPUS IMPERIAL IPA

On tap at Shepherd & Knucklehead – Hoboken, hilariously sexually charged moniker somehow suits this ‘panties dropping’ high energy (10.6% ABV) strong ale. Its murky copper-dirtied hue will scare away lighter thirsts upon sight. However, well-balanced and enduringly fruity India Pale Ale hearkens to a syrupy malt-enriched Sangria-bound barleywine. Luxurious pink grapefruit, cantaloupe, honeydew, cherry, mango and tangerine tang sweetens alongside sugary pastry confection and above pungently resinous piney hop bittering. Undeniable.

STONE 20 CITRACADO IPA

On tap at Poor Henry’s, aggressive 2016 limited edition Imperial IPA proves original as brisk citra-hopped avocado flower honey heightens floral-sweetened fruit juicing over chewy whiskey-daubed caramel malting. Capacious pink grapefruit, Valencia orange, red cherry, mango, pineapple, papaya, guava and apple bouquet really sings out! Minor earthen pine resin adds light astringency to the underside of ambitious avocado-honeyed 20th anniversary hybrid.
