Maine Beer Company ‘Lunch’, 7% ABV, IPA. Freeport, ME – The one…the only. This beer usually kicks within the same day tapped. Their “East Coast” version of a West Coast- style IPA. Intense hop flavors and aromas of tropical and citrus fruits and pine dominate. A subtle malt sweetness brings the beer into balance. Drink it.
Equilibrium ‘Perturbation Citra’, 6.5% ABV, IPA. Middletown, NY – Bright tropical passion fruit, mango, pineapple, lychee, and a touch of sweet that’s balanced by a smooth bitterness and round mouthfeel. This new-ish brewery is killin’ it!
Grimm ‘Rainbow Dome‘, 5% ABV, Dry Hopped Wild Ale brewed with Apricots. Brooklyn, NY – Tart aromas of stone fruit and fruity hops (El Dorado, Columbus, Cascade). Intense apricot on the palate with soft, inviting acidity. Full, creamy mouthfeel with plesantly spicy tannins from both fruit skins and new oak. Crush, crush, crush.
Transmitter Brewing ‘SY1’, 7.2% ABV, Rye Saison. Long Island City, NY – Southeast N3 yeast cultured from necatarins and a saison malt profile drinks like a saison found a monk in a dark Abby 😉 think spicy yeast and clove meet a pile of necatarines with a hint of light pepper. Support local!
