From Colorado’s New Belgium Brewing, most famous for Fat Tire Ale, Juicy Watermelon is a watermelon lime ale. It’s got a light golden hue, a fizzy head that dissipates quickly, and it’s malt forward, so if you can’t find this brew locally, get yourself some Bud Light Lime, add a one quarter to one half ounce of watermelon juice, and you’ll have something reasonably close. The body is light to medium and the alcohol is a mild 5% ABV.
I give it a 2 out of 5.
From Rogue Farms of Newport Oregon, 6 Hop IPA is a citrus forward west coast style IPA all the way. The nose is citrus and floral. Orange, lemon and grapefruit are in the middle. The finish has pine and lemon. Really lovely beer.
I give it 4.5 out of 5.
Extrovert is an American IPA from the Left Hand Brewing Company. It pours with a voluminous head that disappears quickly. The nose is grassy, with a lot of lemon. The middle is pleasantly tropical with lemon, some mango and a hint of peach. The finish is dry and slightly buttery. The body is medium and the alcohol is 7.1% ABV. A really nice middle of the road American IPA.
I give it a 4.2 out of 5.
