Year of New Beer: My Beer Haze a First Name...It's N.E.I.P.A., Mirror Twin Brewing (Lexington)

Written By: Dion on 11/24/2017

Take a drive down Winchester Road toward National Avenue, and you're liable to find yourself in a hazy situation...one that has nothing to do with the quantity of beers you might consume in the Mirror Twin taproom. The guys have cranked out several versions of arguably the hottest style in the country, and this is likely their best yet. The aroma is almost straight juice as tart peach, mango, and grapefruit practically leap from the glass. A very light, sweet malt note joins a trace of dankness as the glass comes to temperature. These elements translate beautifully to the tongue as the fruits present with a pithiness that stops short of being overly bitter. A fleeting honey sweetness seems to give the beer a soft, almost creamy feel. Hints of herbal grasses dry the mouth on the finish. This is very, very well done. Get it before it's gone!
