Clown Shoes Galactica.
odells Myrcenary or IPA
Sweetwater IPA ....
That's my go to
I'd have to say flower power. So delicious. I actually got 2 consecutive sixtels of it earlier this year and I literally had never repeated a sixtel before that.
Flying dog citra DIPA is the like drinking a juicy peach IPA. Pretty much any IPA with mostly citra and galaxy hops with be more fruity, easy drinking less bitter IPA.
Meh. Overly bitter and mildy fruity.
have you traded for that, or can you actually find it around the city right now?
Drive up to Mass and get your hands on some Wormtown Be Hoppy.
Hoptimum, and abcs
Green Flash: West Coast IPA, Imperial, and maybe even Palate Wrecker (if you like high ibu/abv)
Two Hearted is good but maybe more floral than fruity (IMO).
Two Hearted is perfect!
Two Hearted Ale from Bell's and All Day IPA are easy to drink on a hot day!
Try clown shoes galactica brewed in Ipswich mass. Galaxy hops are tropical as a storm. Or try Maine beer co lunch.
Too bad you can't get Sweetwater IPA. At only 6.2% and super fruity it would be perfect.
I have tried very hard to like this beer but I just can't get into it, and I typically really like Troegs' stuff.
Caldera is nice, also a canned brew, tasty as hell and relatively low in ABV for an IPA. Jai Alai too, has to be fresh though. Fits the adjective juicy quite nicely.
Raging bitch by flying dog!
Had my very first tonight courtesy of a friend from Hershey. Solid
Not a fan of Gandhi? I'd drink that everyday without hesitation. To each his own.
Try G'Knight. Maybe even Deviant Dales. Both scream juicy and IMO both tasted better than the one NN I had the "pleasure" to drink a few months ago.
Might I suggest Hoptimum? You can easily get it in CT (and everywhere else), and it's quite juicy and fruity. You won't avoid the grapefruit hop bomb effect entirely, but for an intensely hopped DIPA, it's extremely sweet and balanced.
For refreshing DIPA, Double Trouble is my favorite. Scary how easy it goes down.
There are three really good ones I've heard of recently.
Pliny the Elder
Double Sunshine IPA.
I think they are tough to get though.
any base pale + French press + 2oz citra = what you need
Man, what really is "fruity"
Personally I find IPA's that are "grapefruity" (stuff like Citra hopped beers), and then "fruity" (more sweeter fruit, like juicy fruit, Two Hearted for me). I see recomendations for both to me here. BUT, that's just my definition and my tastebuds.
More Fruity by my definition is Two Hearted, Hop Devil, Flower Power, Nugget Nectar. Someone mentioned Lake Erie Monster and someone else mentioned Alchemy Hour. To me Alchemy is more grapefruity with Piney, while Moster is more Fruity with a bit of Pine. I find Furious more fruity and Abrasive more grapefruity.
Was going to mention this. I should put a timer next to me when drinking this so I can limit myself to a certain number of sips every couple of minutes. It's that drinkable to me.
It's actually a touch boozy for 9.1% ABV...but in a drinkable, good way. Like how a gin & tonic is on a hot day at the beach.
Found a couple of bottles of Alchemy last week... I think she's seen better days given her shelf life and the bottle's "serve by" date would agree. Also snagged a fresh Lake Erie Monster which tasted fantastic.
Dogfish head 60 minute IPA I really loved when I was in the USA.
Take a ride down to Jersey and get yourself some Carton Boat Beer. You surely will not be disappointed by a delicious 4.2% session IPA. Growler fills and on tap only. Good news is its only 10$ for a 64oz fill at the brewery.
Am I missing a trick here? If I want to be refreshed I'll sink a couple of pints of something suitable. If I'm hot and thirsty I always go for something light and easy such as Hophead or a decent mild.I certainly don't find beers of high ABV refreshing, they put me to sleep.
No problem with IPA, had a couple tonight. But not for thirst or to cool off, simply to enjoy and savour.Not the same thing at all. I began the evening with a mild though to deal with my thirst and refresh me
Edit-just read the above post ,4.2% IPA is only just above session strength and should fit the bill reasonably well. My Hophead is 3.6% and incredible for the gravity.
Sculpin, Hop Wallop
Most of them.
Cool story dude.
I happen to be able to drink imperial stouts, barleywines, and old ales any time.
Am I breaking some rule?
I can drink these any time too. But not in order to feel refreshed! I don't feel more alert or energetic after a pint or two of these , I envy your metabolism.Actually, I feel quite droopy after what I've had tonight
I also find maxing out/volume work with front/back squats over 45-70 reps every day refreshing.
