A Note on This Beer
I do everything I can to get my hop-grubbin’ paws on new batches of Hubbard’s Cave Fresh IIPAs.
These juicy hops are a staple for Chicago craft fans. In fact, The Chicago Tribune even calls out the Fresh IIPA series for vaunting some of the best Hazy IPAs in Chicago.
But, that’s not even the best part — every version boasts a fresh new hop combo. And, with one taste of today’s Fresh IIPA V47, deeply profound layers of flavor reveal themselves from Citra, Nelson Sauvin, and Simcoe Hops.
Citra brings the tropical mango and papaya flavors to the mix, leaving room for Nelson Sauvin’s notes of ripe apricot and just-plucked white grapes. Bringing up the rear is Simcoe, delivering potent smacks of spring pine dankness. It tastes like a straight-up tropical mango cocktail!
This brew is meant for deep, thoughtful sips in order to discover all of the flavorful nuances swirling in its pillowy haze. And, because it was canned so fresh, the taste is so mesmerizingly complex and sippable, it masks the 8.5% ABV a little too well.
When it comes to freshness, Hubbard’s Cave completely nails it. You know it, too — of the last 5 Fresh IIPAs we managed to snag, you all rated every single one 4+ on Tavour!
