Year of New Beer: Hazy But Lazy, Mirror Twin Brewing (Lexington)

Written By: Dion on 07/29/2017

The "New England IPA" craze finally hits the Bluegrass and the bar is set high, as Mirror Twin comes out swinging, delivering a hop-heavy, juicy glass of citrusy goodness. The nose is straight fruit--primarily grapefruit with traces of tangerine, backed by herbal grasses. Beautiful transition to the tongue, with a bitterness that stops short of being brash, offering up delicious tropical fruit notes that linger until being overtaken by dank, weedy hops. Anytime my wife, who drinks zero beer, steals 3 and 4 sips from my glass...I know this is something special. The beer nerds of Lexington asked, and Mirror Twin delivered. Best beer out of this brewery to date. Now do it again. And again.
