Year of New Beer: HOPART, Rock House Brewing (Lexington)
Written By: Dion on 11/07/2020
So I'm a month late getting to this one, but that doesn't make it any less delicious. I love apricot in beers, and this delivers the minute it hits the nose. Sweet and juicy, with enough tart peach to counter, all layered over a creamy vanilla milkshake base. Transitions perfectly to the tongue with all of the olfactory markers intact. Once again, the apricot presents as almost candied, with the unripened peach demanding equal footing. Nice, sweet lactose base to carry everything. Juicy, tart, a touch hoppy, and plenty of "milkshake" to nail the style. Very well done.
