Year of New Beer: Alpha Experiment Ella, Country Boy Brewing (Lexington)

Written By: Dion on 05/09/2015

With a nose that hits hard with tropical & citrus fruits, this one gets me salivating before the first sip. No letdown on the tongue, as notes of mango, pineapple, and tangerine come on, albeit with slightly less intensity than the aroma would lead you to believe. Mid-palate brings a fresh hay/grassy bitterness than lingers momentarily before the fruit flavors return. This is really good. Rarely will I have a second pint of something when there are beers on the board that I've never tried, but this one earned that honor.
