TGIF: In A Haze
Let’s be honest…there are worse ways to kickstart the weekend than with a cold beverage.
And yet, it’s easy to fall into a routine of buying the same couple of beers or spirits at your favorite watering hole or the LCBO. Of course, there’s always going to be your standard go-to’s. But mixing it up (get it…mixing???) makes for a fun outing.
With that in mind, we’re taking a shot (bet you thought we would stop with the drinking puns after that first one) at finding you a weekly selection of spirits to liven up your Friday.
This week why don’t your try…
Meadow Haze – Couchiching Brewing
Like many IPAs, the appearance is an inviting hazy gold, almost closer to orange juice. That first pour is capped by three fingers of dense white head. Look for plenty of spidery lacing that clings to the glass and orbits the edges.
As for the initial smell, expect fruity aromas, and plenty of them. Those aromas are augmented heavily by tastes of grapefruit and lemon, when you first take a sip. That leads to a juicy sunset-hued rogue wave of flavors featuring clean Amarillo, Galaxy, Mosaic, & Citra hops.
Moreover, Meadow Haze is medium-thick bodied, with carbonation emerging moderately. That level of carbonated sparkle plays well with the flavors. The finish is dry, and that sharp dryness permeates right to the end.
Best paired with a choice from the grill, if you are enjoying with a meal.
