Year of New Beer: Haze Against The Machine, Mirror Twin Brewing Co (Lexington)
Written By: Dion on 08/27/2019
HazePalooza comes to National Avenue on Saturday, bringing multiple one-offs in the taproom, as well as this new brew and two old favorites in cans. Bold and juicy on the nose, with pineapple, mango, and tangerine bursting forth from the jump. The tropical notes transition well to the tongue, with the mango and pineapple offering up a bit of sweetness atop a honey-like malt. Really nice citrus peel bitterness across the middle that never gets too harsh, but doesn't let you forget you're drinking a double IPA. Spicy and a touch herbal on a resinous finish. Alcohol is remarkably well-hidden given the ABV. I like this one a lot. Available in the taproom on Saturday.
