Year of New Beer: Lampshade Party Ale, Bell's Brewery (MI)
Written By: Dion on 12/29/2020
Aroma reminds me a bit of Hopslam, at least initially. Lots of pineapple and sweet malt backbone to start, with hints of berry and melon coming on with warmth. Gets a bit more diverse on the tongue. Still offers up a nice candied pineapple, but brings in tangerine and peach across the middle. Really nice earthy pine note toward the end, along with some herbal grasses. Very reminiscent of the old school double IPAs that really cemented my love for craft beer.
