Fruit / Vegetable Beer
Limited (brewed once).
This time around we let one of our oldest employees -- and current brewer -- Rich Ruelle take a crack at brewing his own recipe, and it's a doozy. The result is Humulus Palm -- an 8.3% ABV hoppy ale spiked with tons of coconut for a huge tropical hop blast that is going to be perfect going into the summer months. We'll be tapping that beer on Friday when we open!

Poured from "blank" 2L Palla growler into a Bruery tulip.
A - Dark golden yellow. Eggshell white head that leaves decent lacing.
S - Catpiss, mango, peach, coconut water.
T - Peach, mango, and catpiss hops come thru. Coconut is definitely there on the backend. Still ends dry, but it is not extremely bitter which makes it very drinkable.
M - Medium, creamy body. Medium carbonation.
O - Really different IPA. Not extreme. The coconut gives it a nice flavor, but doesn't overwhelm. Melds nice with the tropical hops to make this a great drinkable beer. Scary drinkable at 8%.
Serving type: growler

On tap at The Bruery in Placentia, CA.
Pours a murky orange with a foamy bone head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus zest, and toasted coconut aromas. Taste is much the same with a nice coconut flavor on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with a nice coconut presence in the aroma and flavor.
Serving type: on-tap
