I’m not sure why this beer is named the way that it is, but fortunately it’s a name that has no bearing on the beer itself.
Ham Sandwich is a straight up single hop (Mosaic, if you’re wondering) New England IPA.
It pours a slightly hazy gold and smells of pineapple chunks and lemon balm.
The malting is soft and squidgy, with shortcake and caramel making for a light yet solid base, while the hops taste super fresh, with lots of spiky green leaves, a prickle of lemon sherbet and some pineapple juiciness.
Loitering in the background, the yeast adds a mist of lightly spiced peaches, while the finish is long, crisp and dry.
