Year of New Beer: Natural Bridge, Dreaming Creek Brewery (Richmond, KY)
Written By: Dion on 01/21/2021
I've been drinking craft beer for 30 years. So I've seen a few trends. Kinda like fashion, things tend to come full circle. This beer is a great example. Nice blend of grapefruit, orange zest, and light pine on the nose, with hints of toasted malts. On the tongue, this is very reminiscent of the old school IPAs from my early drinking days...pithy citrus atop light caramel malts and bread crust. Faint pine and a lingering orange/subtle pineapple through a modestly bitter finish. When you get a little fatigued by some of the latest trends, it's sometimes nice to go back to the closet for something tried and true. This one seems to still fit. Nicely done.
