On tap at Plank Pizza, seductive coffee roast and bittersweet black chocolate auxiliary incur hop charred espresso nuttiness. Cold-brewed coffee continuance picks up dark caramel, cappuccino, tannic vanilla and musty blueberry snips.
Soured lemony orange effervescence and dry white wheat base way more insistent than hefe-related banana/clove sweetness as white peppered herbage stays laidback for flagship offering. Closer to a slightly rustic grain-embedded American wheat ale.
Easygoing sunny yellow-hazed NEIPA utilizes Sabro-Motueka hop combo for floral-daubed lemon zesting and serene orange-peel grapefruit bittering surfacing atop grassy pine tones. Mild salted spicing and tertiary peach, pineapple, papaya and mango tropicalia backup candied citrus continuance.
Flagship Vienna lager betters most as mild toffee spicing picks up rustic leafy hop astringency, peaty fungi mossing, phenol orange oiling and husked nut tannins for contrast. Pilsner-honeyed Weyermann malting coats brown bread base.
On tap at Paragon, ambitiously fruitful flagship NEIPA stays stylishly robust, but retains only slight vanilla creaming despite rich crystal pale malt base. Bright citrus zesting contrasts tartly yogurt-soured tropical fruiting with remarkable clarity. Sweet orange-peeled lemon meringue piquancy, sharp yellow grapefruit bittering and peachy mango tang lean towards a West Coast IPA while sourly salted guava, gooseberry and green grape illusions nod towards a New Zealand-hopped IPA. A heady delight!
