District Brew Yards Advent Calendar: Day 7
Around the Bend Juice Trials (Amarillo, Bravo, Centennial)
Juicy or Hazy India Pale Ale
Hazy golden body with a quickly diminishing white head. An interesting hop combination leads to an interesting aroma. A mix of both traditional citrus and pine, but also with some light tropical hints interspersed. In particular, I’m picking up mango, and perhaps some apricot. I feel like I’ve enjoyed other Juice Trials more than this offering. It’s not bad, but I feel a bit like it’s trying to be all things without truly being any of them. Not a true tropical, fruit-forward, Hazy IPA, nor a bitter, bracing American IPA. Oh well, I’ll look forward to the next trial.
