Year of New Beer: Write Drunk Edit Sober, Fat Orange Cat Brew Co (CT)
Written By: Dion on 01/27/2019
Quite a bit going on in the aroma as sharp citrus blends well with juicier, sweeter tropical fruits like mango and papaya. Hints of herbal grasses and honey with warmth. Initial taste brings quite a bit of resinous bitterness that does give way to a light caramel malt and honey sweetness along the middle. Still plenty of orange, pineapple, grapefruit, and mango to be enjoyed before the grassy hop bite picks up on a drying finish. Pretty nice NEIPA, but perhaps a tad bitter when compared to the style's elite level.
