Robust porter lets tarry cocoa powdering embitter the front end while subtle coconut sweetness underscores its fudgy dark chocolate persistence. Bitter chocolate continuance dominates casual coconut cluster as well as distant pecan, acorn and almond nuttiness.
On tap at Growlers To Go – Kitty Hawk, zestful Mosaic-Citra hop tropicalia encounters dry wood lacquered Chinook-Centennial hop herbage atop creamy oated wheat base. Continual salty lemon spritz joins yellow grapefruit bittering, pineapple tanginess and orange pith dryness.
Less rangy than creamier tropical fruited NEIPA’s, relying on straightforward lemon-seeded yellow grapefruit bittering in a mellow oated torrified wheat setting. Zesty pineapple, orange rind and guava subtleties given light pine-oiled hop resin.
Going just a tad beyond IPA styling, sessionable pale body relies on green tea-like herbal lemon quality and lighter oats base instead of strictly plied piney citric bittering and richer pale malting. Mild grassy floral undertones and wispy orange-tangerine tang complete the score.
