On tap at Kitchen & Beer Bar, wheat-altered IPA placates lemony grapefruit-orange tang with Hallertau Blanc-hopped white grape esters, earthen melon mold and dry wood lacquer above bready oats base in soft-toned hefeweizen setting.
Lively lemony yellow grapefruit tang gains sweet orange peel resonance, spry floral spicing and herbal lemongrass respite, but minor alkaline-like aspirin chalking drifts inside the midst. Tertiary mango, pineapple and tangerine fruiting and polite coriander seasoning brush against doughy white wheat spine.
Pleasant lemony grapefruit tang, white-peppered citric hop (Mosaic and Amarillo) bittering, delicate evergreen pining and fresh-cut grass earthiness pick up pithy sugar-spiced sweetness. Orange-peeled pineapple, tangerine and peach illusions barely reach the surface while creamy wheat malts stay safely below. Stylishly slick.
On tap at Plank Pizza, “adventurous” Belgian candi-suagred IPA promotes optimum Citra-hopped tropicalia over sourdough-breaded honey wheat base. Frisky pine oiling embitters juicy grapefruit, orange, peach, nectarine and apple tang coalescing whimsical banana-clove illusions to knock back brutish bitter bite.
Refreshingly smooth white-peppered citrus hop pining, sweet orange peel briskness and saffron-spiced coriander sugaring set the mood. Lemon zest, mandarin orange, navel orange, mango, tangerine and peach illusions gain candied pineapple spree and delicate floral bouquet above mild biscuit backbone. Fresh-cut grass, reedy wood tones and herbal peppercorn respite provide contrasting dryness. Centrist-minded veteran brewers hit one right down the middle with one of the best springtime White IPA’s ever.
On tap at Shepherd & Knucklehead, approachably hybridized medium-bodied Imperial White India Pale Ale (with well hidden 9.3% ABV) truly suffices. Perfumed citric fruiting, sugary coriander spicing and syrupy crystal malting sweeten the front end as black-peppered orange peel bittering retains toned-down briskness. Candied red apple, peach, pear, melon and tangerine illusions provide jolly mood to contrast orange-peeled grapefruit rind splendor.
On tap at Shepherd & Knucklehead, approachable ‘side project’ provides witbier-spiced farmhouse yeast to zesty citric breeze. White peppercorn, as well as lesser coriander and allspice seasoning, drapes lemon-peeled mandarin orange, pineapple and peach illusions above sugary rum lacquer. Serve to fruitier pale ale imbibers.
Sessionable soft-toned India Pale Ale retains delicate wheat-honeyed citric resolve. Mild piney hop bittering spreads across ripe pineapple-peach-apple-melon tones and misty lemon zest. White-peppered floral spicing wavers to wispy white wheat base.
