Year of New Beer: Half & Half Lemonade Iced Tea IPA, Evil Twin Brewing/Omnipollo (NY/Sweden)

Written By: Dion on 01/05/2018

Having really enjoyed the Old Fashioned Lemonade and Pink Lemonade IPAs from Evil Twin, I didn't have to think twice about buying this one. The nose is sweet lemon candy with maybe a hint of citrus peel, but try as I might, I really get zero tea in the aroma. On the tongue is an initial lemon tartness that soon gives way to an overly sweet, artificial tasting tea-like flavor. I suppose this might be a refreshing pool or beach beer, but there's just too many lower priced alternatives. Not a terrible beer, just not my cup of tea.
