Year of New Beer: Triple Citra Monster, Mirror Twin Brewing Co. (Lexington)
Written By: Dion on 11/01/2020
Most of the time, taking an IPA to 10% ABV and beyond will yield a hot, boozy mess. Leave it up to the haze masters on National Avenue to cast that stereotype aside. Huge notes of juicy orange atop a slightly sweet malt backdrop, Hints of honey and candied pineapple. Soft and smooth as the taste follows the aroma perfectly. Almost like an orange cream candy with zero bitterness and surprisingly little alcohol heat. Juicy through the finish. I'm a sucker for pretty much any IPA using citra hops, but this is ridiculously good.
