Year of New Beer: Apricot Hopcake, Almanac Beer Co (CA)
Written By: Dion on 09/07/2020
Love the nose on this from the start, as the apricot is in-your-face dominant. Peach skin, light lemon, and a musty oak that builds with warmth. Moderately sour on the tongue with the oak barrels adding a bit of funkiness. Juicy citrus and some field grass along the middle as the mosaic and citra hops flex just a bit. Finishes slightly dry with a lingering pucker. Good stuff, as are most beers from this brewery.
