Brewery – Listermann
Beer – Brewer’s Delight
Style – NE IPA
ABV – 7.1%
East Coast IPA brewed with Pineapple, Galaxy, Citra & Zythos!
Another fruited version of a NE IPA from Listermann, and another homerun. This one uses pineapple to bring out all those tropical notes that are already present in the Galaxy, Citra and Zythos hops.
When you place it alongside its “release-mate”, No Sleep ‘Til Norwood, you can catch a glimpse of two very different examples of what you can do with a NE IPA, and they take their individual personalities to a new level and lift each other to a great place.
My Thoughts On Brewer’s Delight
Brewer’s Delight is a hazy IPA, with a thin white head on top.
Aromas are all tropical fruit, with the pineapple addition sitting front and center and setting the stage for everything else that you can smell.
The taste of the beer is big, and juicy to say the very least. The fruit smoothie-like concoction runs the gamut with flavors of mango, oranges and that great pineapple finish.
This would be amazing next to the pool this summer… Here’s to hoping it comes back!
