District Brew Yards Advent Calendar: Day 13

Burnt City Juice Pillow

Burnt City Juice Pillow

Juicy or Hazy India Pale Ale
7.4% ABV

This is an excellent hazy offering from Burnt City. It’s got a little more bite than some of the others. The body is soft and velvety on the tongue. The aroma is chuck-full of fresh fruit, with loads of pineapple, fresh orange juice, apricot, and maybe a hint of lemon. It starts sweet on the tongue, but transitions to a nice, pithy bitterness at the end. There is a real pineapple-orange juice quality to this beer that is really working for me right now. I happened to stumble across a 4-pack of this just before picking up the advent calendar and had been holding on to a can, just in case it wasn’t included. I’m not at all upset to have done that. The beer is still great and I’ve got another can in fridge.
