    Astrolab Brewing – Silver Spring – BEER RELEASE – Nebula, our first DIPA hit the taproom today and it’s lush! It’s hazy, orange and double dry hopped with vibrant notes of stone fruit and citrus accompanied by moderate carbonation to coat the palate with a resin-like finish.
    Attaboy Beer – Frederick – TRIPLE BEER RELEASE – Guava No Guava New England IPA. This 7% juice bomber smells and tastes like a tropical fruit forest, it’s got that thick, luscious mouthfeel that’s all the rage, and the haze, oh so hazy. So tropical and juicy, you’ll think we dumped juice in it. We didn’t (see: NO Guava). AND Tarts McGee Tropical Tart Ale with Mango, Passion Fruit, Pineapple and Guava 4.3%. She’s a sassy tart ale bursting with boatloads of tropical fruit and island vibes. Tart, fruity, and starburst-y, the perfect beer for turning up the heat, putting on your sunnies indoors, and pretending you’re beachside. PLUS Idea Man Double New England IPA 8.7%. Drink this, get ideas. Lots. You’ll thank us.
