Coming at you all with one more brew from the good folks at Two Villains, this time with a beer my wife and I took home with us.
Brewery: Two Villains Brewing (Nyack, NY)
Description: Brewed with oats and a blend of malt, it was then whirlpooled and dry hopped with some of the brewers’ favorite fruit-forward American and New Zealand varieties.
Appearance: It poured a hazy amber/pineapple juice colored body topped by a thin, slightly off-white head of foam.
Smell: Burst of sticky tropical fruit the moment I opened the crowler.
Taste: Sweet upfront, beginning with pulpy citrus fruits and apricot before some more mellow melon notes set in. A nice pale malty/oaty base poked through around mission and was quickly followed a slightly resinous grapefruit bitterness that carried through to the finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate level of carbonation.
Hype: High! My first my time drinking an official Two Villains beer at home that wasn’t a home brew. I also missed this one the brewery and my wife raved about it on the way back to the car.
Overall: I can certainly understand now why this was such a hit! Great juicy flavor and just the right amount of bitterness on the end made this one a real winner.
