On tap at Taphouse 15, lacquered peach pasting gains boisterous citrus bittering as sharp grapefruit-peeled orange rind spunk reigns over dank piney hop romp, nearly overwhelming initial peach tones and latent mango-nectarine snips.
On tap at Hoover’s, well-balanced oatmeal raisin cookie-defined full body lays on the nutty hop-charred resolve to deepen its cocoa-powdered black malt bittering against cookie dough-sugared oatmeal raisin persuasion. Vanilla-beaned Blackstrap molasses sinew adds to bitter edge, sacrificing some of the oatmeal raisin splendor.
Interesting year round mocha porter aged on incense-like palo santo wood loads mildly creamed dark chocolate syrup upon Madagascar vanilla bean bittering, toasted coconut sweetness, mild espresso milking and minty anise spicing. Slight burnt wood-toned chicory undercurrent laces robust mocha finish.
Fine flagship offering (in a can) will please avid hopheads with its oily hop bittering, resinous pine tarring and brisk juniper berry pungency. Sharp grapefruit-peeled orange rind tang brightens all the musky bitterness. Wispy pineapple, peach, mango and mandarin orange tropicalia found in deep recess.
