Year of New Beer: Double Peach Monster, Mirror Twin Brewing Co (Lexington)
Written By: Dion on 08/09/2020
Adding to the Monster line, MT tosses some peach puree into the mix for their latest haze. Peach is actually a bit more subtle on the nose than I was expecting, as the Amarillo hops contribute seemingly equal amounts of grapefruit and orange. The namesake fruit is better represented on the tongue, coming off a touch tart. Orange and even a suggestion of lemon as well. Very mildly bitter grapefruit pith and a wave of herbs on a slightly dry finish. Not sure how this is 8%, because it definitely doesn't drink like it. Another excellent New England IPA from the crew at Mirror Twin.
