Endlessly sessionable aluminum yellow-hazed Belgian tripel spreads pickled lemon zesting across reserved banana-clove sweetness, herbal ginger-spiced white peppering, fungi-spiked grassy hop pining, mossy peat earthiness and latent plantain-clementine-grapefruit licks over its mild white bread spine.
On tap at Growler & Gill, lemony Seltzer-fizzed bantam retains corn-dried cream ale profile as pale malts sugaring and subdued grassy hops merge for simple, sessionable softie.
On tap at Ambulance, soft-toned Imperial IPA places honey-spiced citrus tang alongside creamy candied malt sugaring to contrast dank grassy hop astringency. Juicy peach, grapefruit, orange, tangerine, pineapple and mango tropicalia makes fine impact.
On tap at Cooper’s Seafood, wayward ‘chocolate strawberry cream stout’ defers black-malted dark chocolate stylization and wavering strawberry adjunct for unexpected wood-dried earthen dankness (and Band-Aid-like astringency) at the molasses-smoked mocha finish. Too much goin’ on for inconclusive dark ale.
On tap at Ambulance, well-integrated and refreshingly clean India Pale Ale plies off-dry Citra and Centennial piney hop bittering to juicy orange, grapefruit, pineapple and mango tang. Tropical splendor underlined by crisp celery watering.
On tap at The Oath, tangy yellow-paled Belgian IPA glides bright citrus zest and light grape esters into white-peppered Belgian yeast spicing. Lemony banana-clove snip and wispy vanilla-chestnut subtleties nearly lost to ascending bitter hop bite.
On tap at Ambulance, medium-roast coffee tones receive cream and sugar sweetness above oats-flaked cocoa beaning. At midst, chocolate and vanilla influence gains authority. Light bourbon lilt further sweetens medium-full-bodied stout.
