Twisted Barrel Ale Wrapped In Simcoe (6%)

Thick and round and juicy, this is a top IPA from our friends at a Twisted Barrel.
The beer pours a rich peachy gold and sits in my glass with its big frothy head fizzing with life.
The aroma is honey and apricots, inviting and fresh, it pulls you down into the drink where you find a sharp hit of tobacco and celery, lemon zest, oranges, piney resin and soft peach fuzz from the Simcoe, while the malting provides a smooth creamy toffee and pancake, sugar syrup and doughnut body.
The yeast floats around in the background adding a lightly spiced earthy richness to the long sweet sherbet of the finish.
Yum.
