Crut’s Cuties is an orange-colored India Pale Ale with an awesome effervescence of tangerine aromas and floral hops. The addition of California Clementines gives the beer tangy citrus initial flavors, which refresh the palate. A light dryness is created in the finish as the hop bitterness increases slightly between tastes.
This brew was conceived as a homebrew side-project of Short’s Production Brewer, Curt Guntzviller. After sharing it with the rest of the Short’s staff, everyone agreed that Curt should brew a batch on the pub brewing system in Bellaire.
