Silken gold-hazed moderation renders spiced yellow grapefruit sunshine and sweet orange peel zesting over pasty pale malts in crystalline Cryo Citra hop setup. Mild pine tones linger thru the brisk citrus finish as ancillary mango, pineapple and tangelo notions provide juicy backup.
Streamlined piney citrus bittering loiters alongside subtle floral sweetness that blows past its earthen sorghum pastiness for gluten free flagship. Lemony grapefruit rind bitterness extends softly into grassy hop astringency. Sorghum’s not yet a satisfactory substitute for wheat circa 2021.
Somewhat blandly ordinary reduced-gluten IPA lacks specific stylistic piney fruiting as gritty raw graining overwhelms lemondrop-candied tartness and orange-dried grapefruit spicing in mannered tea-like setting recalling a desiccated British IPA.
On tap at Ambulance, lemony grapefruit zesting picks up ancillary clementine-tangerine tang and tertiary blood orange tartness embittered slightly by dry pine resin over mildly creamed oated malt sugaring.
Zesty lemony grapefruit sunshine spikes juniper-licked pine resin and pungent cannabis reminder as yogurt-soured peach, passionfruit and mango salting crests atop mildly creamed caramel malting. Exhilarating.
Briskly sharp lemony grapefruit-peeled pineapple and orange tang embittered by sturdy pine tone dryness contrasting less prominent floral-daubed crystal malt sugaring. Salted gooseberry, guava and passionfruit-inspired Nelson Sauvin hop souring stays subtle (despite promotional moniker) for steadfast hazy IPA.
Vibrant yellow marble-hazed IPA collab with North Carolina’s Resident Culture gleams with dry-hopped Citra-Mosaic tropical fruiting, woody Simcoe hop herbage and dank clay resin. Sunny lemon spritz splatters wispy grapefruit, mandarin orange and clementine tang.
Straight-up piney citrus spicing stays perfectly centrist for scaled down version of brewers’ Lips and Lungs Double IPA. Candi-coated grapefruit-peeled orange rind pleasantry retains light back end bittering reinforced by dry wood tones (and wispy alcohol esters) over a crusty French bread spine.
On tap at Beef Trust, briskly sharp lemony yellow grapefruit tang gains limey pineapple bittering and mandarin orange tartness as dank cannabis oiling contrasts wheat-flaked Vienna malt sugaring.
Straightforward moderation relegates lemony grapefruit zesting and creamy crystal malt sugaring as well as mild grassy hop astringency. Easygoing fluff.
On tap at Hoover’s Tavern, zestful orange juicing packs taut Citra/ Mosiac/ Azacca hop tropicalia of briskly clean IPA (with totally unassuming 8% ABV). Sunshiny orange tang gains mild pineapple-lemonade licks over sugary pale malt sweetness.
On tap at Ambulance, stylishly offbeat IPA burrows dry white-peppered cannabis dankness into damp earthen soiling, leaving floral-daubed tannic currant upon wispily back-ended peach, grapefruit and orange tang.
