Soothing caramelized chocolate fudging relegates medium roast coffee bittering and mild vanilla creaming of well-rounded full body (brewed at Great South Bay). Coffee-vanilla theme continually loses out to cocoa-dried dark chocolate malting while bitter Blackstrap molasses-coated wood char gains access.
On tap at Morris Tap & Grill, tart gooseberry pep, zesty lemon briskness and tangy tangerine-pineapple-mango sweetness inform orange neon-hazed New England-styled India Pale Ale. Ripe citrus entry gains dank earthen musk and peppery snip over biscuity malts.
On tap at Beef Trust, easygoing yellow-marbled moderation leads with its pine-combed yellow grapefruit tang and tart lemon spritz. Limey gooseberry-passionfruit-guava-dried Nelson Sauvin hops, sour green grape tannins and vodka-tinged juniper nip coddle lactic milk-sugared pale malts.
Bone-dry, rosé-wined, ‘hot pink’ gose brings vinous lemon-salted green grape souring to subtle hibiscus tartness, leaving sparkling rosé reminder. Pink sea-salted citrus rind bittering gains mild cranberry pucker and acidic raspberry vinaigrette tinge upped by lactobacillus saison yeast.
On tap at Taphouse 15, easygoing beige yellow-hazed pale ale pairs perfumed yellow grapefruit tanginess with musky hop-oiled astringency, slowly gaining mandarin orange, tangerine and pineapple illusions above sweet grain malt bottom.
