Year of New Beer: Space Beast, West 6th Brewing (Lexington)
Written By: Dion on 06/19/2018
Had no idea that this new double IPA was on tap, so naturally I had to go with it. Nice aroma that features mostly tropical notes of pineapple, mango, and maybe a hint of passion fruit. Slight herbal quality with warmth. Silky smooth on the tongue as the hops lean fruity rather than bitter. Has a bit of the New England IPA juiciness, but has enough bite to keep it in line with more traditional doubles. A honey-like, malty sweetness slides in for balance. Very little alcohol burn. Outstanding.
