Another wordily monikered Evil Twin brew. This time it’s a hazy golden yellowed triple NEIPA with a lightly creamed head that’s smooth as silk. Soft-toned sourly tart lemony yellow grape tannins meet yellow grapefruit, tangerine and papaya tropicalia as floral white peppered herbage wispily enters the fray.
On tap at Kitchen & Beer Bar, easygoing beige golden hazed double dry-hopped NEIPA promotes mildly salted lemon zesting, tangy orange peel sweetness and tartly sour guava-gooseberry conflux above delicate wheated oats base. Tropical-bound New Zealand-derived Nelson Sauvin/ Motueka hop combo connects for juicy fruited moderation.
On tap at Kitchen & Beer Bar, mellow frothily cream-headed NEIPA lets brisk grapefruit-peeled orange pith bittering and mild pineapple, tangerine and mango tanginess stay low key as resinous pine tones and herbal nips secure the clean mineral watered pale malt bottom.
On tap at Taphouse 15, spectral tropical fruited NEIPA blends Vic Secret-hopped grape tannins with floral-daubed Motueka/Rakau/Wakutu-hopped lime zesting and tart passionfruit-guava-pineapple zips. Lemony orange Pez-like tartness assumes control at the midst as mild tangerine, mango and peach illusions plus mild cat-pissed acidity saddle dank earthen bottom gently buffered by white wheated pilsner malting.
‘Aggressively hopped’ NEIPA could use juicier tropical fruited frontage. Yet its tangy orange, mango and pineapple spicing and herbal lemon souring never fail to gently entice above cereal grained pilsner(?) malting.
Semi-sharp citrus bittering gains tangy mango and pineapple salting for subdued coconut milking of loosely-defined murky golden milkshake IPA. Instead, label this as a bold tropical-fruited New England IPA as its creamy vanilla froth gets depleted by the same yogurt-soured guava, gooseberry and green grape tartness many New England IPA’s promote. A viscous medium body with piney hop oiling and floral hibiscus nuances hiding beneath its gluey tropical surface.
Straightforward hazy NEIPA retains smoothly easygoing flow as spicy floral-daubed orange, mango and pineapple tang plus tertiary papaya-passionfruit tropicalia pick up mild herbage over dry pale malts.
Proper golden cleared ‘hazy’ NEIPA brings spritzy lemon zest, mildly bitter guava-gooseberry tartness and subtle pineapple-mango juicing to earthen wood toned pungency and dry pale malts in medium bodied setting.
Briskly clean Citra-Mosaic tropical fruit juicing seeps into resinous pine-lacquered grassy meadow, dank earthen soiling and sweet floral daubs, leaving lightly embittered grapefruit-seeded orange rind vibrancy alongside ancillary pineapple, mango, peach and papaya tang atop cereal grained malting.
On tap at Kitchen & Beer Bar, smooth pine-needled mango/grapefruit salting, zesty navel orange/tangerine tang and passionfruit-soured pineapple prickle pick up sugary bubblegum sweetness above creamy vanilla-daubed crystal malting. Tertiary peach, clementine, papaya and watermelon illusions flutter.
Floral-spiced orange peel zesting, lemony grapefruit juicing and tangy pineapple zing pleasingly outdo mild pine tones above dry oated wheat base of worthy tropical fruited moderation.
On tap at Ambulance, amplified Citra/ Simcoe hopped NEIPA increases orange-peeled grapefruit thrust, candied pineapple tartness and misty tangerine tang alongside dank pine resin above mild pale malt sugaring.
