Another day, another beer. This was one that I was excited to try, especially given that the brewery is down the street from Val’s mother’s house. I had this one on tap at our local bar.
Style: American Double/Imperial IPA
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Limited cans and draft available – call your local retailer or follow Two Roads’ social channels for availability Two Juicy is an unfiltered, cloudy ‘New England style Double IPA’ that uses generous amounts of Hallertauer Blanc, Citra & Mandarina Bavaria hops. The result is a ‘juicy’, fully-charged DIPA with notes of grapefruit, pine, lychee, orange & tangerine against a soft malt backdrop.”
Random: I am starving. We ordered sushi tonight and I’m definitely craving it.
The beer poured with a one finger, slightly off white head. It dissipated slowly and left some lacing on the glass. The body was very cloudy and yellow in color with no visible carbonation since it was so hazy. The nose was very fragrant with lots of bright citrus flesh and bordered on tropical. I specifically picked out mango, pineapple and kumquat. The taste wasn’t nearly as good as the nose. It had some citrus peel and dusty pineapple. It reminded me of the bottom of a container of orange pineapple juice. The alcohol was overly present. The body was thick with moderate carbonation. The finish was lengthy with citrus pith and needed more tropical fruit. For me, this was a miss. Given that I had it on draft, I’d be curious to give it another shot.
