Year of New Beer: Haze Cake, Clown Shoes (MA)
Written By: Dion on 11/12/2020
Really big, juicy nose that is loaded with sugared peaches, apricot, mango, and candied pineapple. Just a touch dank as it warms. Fruit really takes charge on the tongue, very tropical overall. Mango and pineapple for sure, with solid sweet citrus notes joining in. Very subtle herbal notes throughout. Heavy malt backing, presenting like it does in so many NEIPAs (for me anyway), as angel food cake batter. Gets a little boozy on the backend, but given the year we've had, is that such a bad thing?
