Year of New Beer: Juice Box Hero, Rock House Brewing (Lexington)
Written By: Dion on 09/12/2019
With haze ruling the IPA world these days, sometimes it's nice to have something a little different. This is a Brett IPA, and the yeast provides a subtle funk against a trio of hops--Vic Secret, Ella, and Wai-iti--that offer up a myriad of citrus/tropical fruits and spiced grasses. Loads of peach, apricot, and pineapple greet the taste buds early, turning to a spiced orange peel and damp, earthy pine with warmth. Very little alcohol presence, making it an easy drinking, nice change of pace.
