On tap at Taphouse Grille – Wayne, dry ‘hoppy session’ stout anchored by dark chocolate-bound coffee tones as espresso, tobacco chaw and seared wood provide adequate bittering for dark roast hop char. Smoked mocha finish gains slight orange peel sweetness.
On tap at Kitchen & Beer Bar, creamier milk-sugared vanilla froth and deeper tropical fruit penetration guide New England-styled Unicorn variant. Zestful Citra-Mosaic hops provide lemony orange-peeled grapefruit tanginess, peachy mango sway and sweet floral spicing while Huell Melon hops disperse green grape/ passionfruit/pineapple souring and Simcoe hops fling lightly pungent piney herbage at contrastive honeyed pale malting.
On tap at Kitchen And Beer Bar, lemony grapefruit zesting rides above milk-sugared vanilla sweetness in delicate oated wheat NEIPA setting. Sessionable though briskly sharp Citra-Mosaic-hopped moderation stays juicily fruitful.
Tart lemon meringue piquancy overrides milk-sugared Madagascar vanilla creaming to the dry pale malt spine of hazy golden medium body. Mellow Curacao orange, tangerine, pineapple and peach illusions extend ambrosial milkshake sweetness to contrast wispily phenol hop astringency.
Lactose-aided vanilla creaming underscores candied pineapple, rummy peach, sweet orange peel, lemon meringue tartness, yellow grapefruit bittering and apple-skinned leathering of pasty-malted 11% ABV NEIPA (with botanical gin esters). Like Bradley’s Unicorn Girls, its hop bill includes juicy fruited Citra, Mosaic, Simcoe and Huell Melon.
On tap at Poor Henry’s (2019), sourly tropical Mexican lager’s an acquired taste. Splashy agave-cologned lime peel zesting given mild sea salting over musky hop stead. In the can (2022), aluminum-cleared light body gained slight resolve. Mild sea-salted lime peeled lemon spritz and wispy agave herbage retain frothily creamed malt liquor head. Decent baked bread remnant. Betters Corona.
