Rustic olfactory musk infiltrates moderately embittered West Coast-styled IPA, leaving mossy earthen dryness upon floral-wafted Citra-Cascade-hopped citrus tang and spritzy tropical fruiting as mildly piney Simcoe-Amarillo-hopped dankness increases. Lemony orange-peeled grapefruit zestiness and mild mango-guava-papaya nuances linger above pale malt spine.
Tangy blood orange juicing gains candied tartness and sweet vanilla smidge, nearly recalling a less sugared Creamsickle pop. Ancillary tangerine ripeness reinforces blood orange adjunct.
Affable sweet-tart blueberry jam syruping maintains sugary resolve above honeyed Graham Cracker spine for fruit-ripened pinkish headed amber-hued moderation. Blueberry puree continuance gains slight red cherry wisp. A fine blueberry-candied summer shandy for fruit ale fiends as well as soda lovers.
Cloying raspberry shandy never hits the spot like Susquehanna’s Blueberry Thrill does. Saccharine-like raspberry sweetness gains wavered cherry-orange-peach-tangerine conflux, lemony rosé tinge and medicinal cherry whim riddled by gummy glutinous gunk.
Tangy citric hop spritz gains hefe-styled banana, clove, bubblegum and vanilla sweetness above delicate brown-sugared Graham Cracker spine. Lemony grape esters lighten the blanched yellow-fruited finish.
