Today (Dec 23rd) marks the first bottle release of Short’s Brew’s Juicy Tree IPA.
Juicy Tree is an experimental India Pale Ale made with blue spruce tips, juniper berries, and cranberries.
Big aromatics of piney evergreen and sweet berries tingle the senses. After some slightly tart and tangy flavors up front, a harmonious balance between pleasant fruit sweetness and bitter pine is reached. A sizable malt bill, ample hop additions, and the floral fruity qualities of American Ale yeast all contribute to the symmetry of this beer. The finish in Juicy Tree (7.5% ABV, 65 IBU) is laced with a resiny stickiness that flows naturally into a lasting bitterness.
Short’s Juicy Tree is only available to brewpub patrons.
