We always know the holidays are approaching when this beer starts getting brewed. For one day the brewhouse smells like a Christmas tree with the aromas of fresh spruce and cranberry. Luckily, Michiganders don’t have to wait any longer because Juicy Tree is back on store shelves!
Juicy Tree (9.5% ABV – 82 IBU) is an experimental India Pale Ale made with blue spruce tips, juniper berries, and cranberries. Big aromatics of piney evergreen and sweet berries tingle the senses. After some slightly tart and tangy flavors up front, a harmonious balance between pleasant fruit sweetness and bitter pine is reached. The finish is laced with a resiny stickiness that flows naturally into a lasting bitterness.
So pick up a six pack of this experimental IPA for your holiday gathering and celebrate with friends and family. Be sure to get one before it’s gone, because this beer is like the holiday season and only around for a limited time.
