The Brew Works Hop Explosion on cask with Citra and Chinook Hops
I stopped in to Al’s of Hampden and ordered a glass of The Brew Works Hop Explosion on cask with Citra and Chinook hops. The beer pours a golden color with orange hues and a foamy white head. The aroma is filled with fresh grapefruit, tangerine, orange, and lemon. The taste is dry and bitter grapefruit at first before tangerine and orange bring out a sweetness. The finish is dry and piny. The alcohol content is 5.5% ABV. This was a wonderfully fresh and citrusy beer that was also notably sessionable. If you get a chance to try this beer, go ahead and do it, as it is perfectly bitter and sweet.
