Year of New Beer: Friend Zone, Country Boy Brewing Co (Georgetown)

Written By: Dion on 06/17/2020

I wish this could've been in a glass to better appreciate the appearance, but rest assured, it definitely looks the part of a New England IPA. And it isn't satisfied to stop there. Early aroma is dominated by a candied orange and sweet pineapple, with lighter notes of grapefruit and herbs. Starts off with a slightly spicy bitterness...hints of herb and even bark. This fades fairly quickly, allowing the citrus to shine across the middle. As the temperature comes up, this takes on a lot of nice tropical notes, leaning toward papaya and mango. Finishes pretty smooth and juicy. Really nice beer.
