Year of New Beer: Jungle Boogie, Marz Community Brewing (Chicago)

Written By: Dion on 06/12/2016

I had picked up a few brews from this brewery on one of my recent trips to Chicago, all of which were solid. So suffice it to say I was happy to find this 4pk locally at Bluegrass Liquor Box. The nose is pungent with fruit, primarily tropical. Mango, guava, and pineapple are backed up by some peach and slightly catty hops. The tongue is a bit more subdued, but still features some candied peach and fruit skins atop a touch of bready malt and herbal tea. The hop bite is firm without being too harsh, drying out slightly on the finish. Really nice beer.
