Year of New Beer: Pineapple Monster, Mirror Twin Brewing Co (Lexington)

Written By: Dion on 11/23/2020

Simcoe hops contribute to an awesome aroma that is heavy on grapefruit, peach, and apricot. Warmth brings on evergreen notes as well as a very subtle pineapple. Earthy and modestly bitter on the tongue, with the pine note stepping up a bit. Apricot and light berry tones across the middle, along with the featured pineapple, which begins to add a pleasant candied sweetness. Maintains a dry, citrus peel bitterness through the finish. Overall, the pineapple is much more subdued than I was expecting, but this is still an excellent NEIPA.
