On tap at Growler & Gill, sumptuously dry Citra-hopped Imperial IPA valiantly coalesces tropical fruit juicing with lactic yogurt-like souring. Lemony sugar-spiced orange-grapefruit-pineapple tanginess contrasts grassy hop musk and mild pine tones while sourly tart redcurrant-glazed melon rind, guava, papaya, gooseberry and mango illusions leave protruding imprint.
On tap at Andy’s Corner Bar, murkily amber-toned dry body charges forth with bitter yellow grapefruit rind prominence gaining zesty lemon zip, muskily dank pine resin and herbal respite above sugar-spiced pale malting in perfectly centrist manner.
On tap at Poor Henry’s, approachably easygoing IPA lets Ekuanot hops add papaya-mango-pineapple zesting to Mimosa-soured lemony orange-juiced champagne sparkle. Lightly pined herbal residue, peachy tangerine whim and wispy spicing stay distant.
On tap at Poor Henry’s, juicier citrus zesting and much muskier pine-oiled earthen tones differentiate ‘North As Uptown’ from its tropically sourer ‘South’ version.

On tap at Ambulance, tropical-fruited Riwaka hops bring subtle yogurt-milked gooseberry and guava souring to tangy grapefruit-juiced pineapple and orange zesting. Serene citric hop spicing picks up mild celery-watered salinity, peppery respite and herbal tinge at easygoing finish.
On tap at Seven Lakes Station, ‘plush’ amber-hazed Imperial NEIPA lets briskly carbolic lemon zesting prickle floral-perfumed candied pineapple, yellow grapefruit, tangy orange, salted mango and sweet peach tones alongside less resilient dank pine resin and wavered onion-chived grassiness.
