Predictable Harmony NEIPA
Dual Citizen Brewing Company Predictable Harmony is a New England IPA (NEIPA) with 7.0% alcohol by volume. Dry hopping gives the beer rich aromatics with tropical fruit, fruit, low sweet grainy malt, and a hint of banana The malt character is clean and neutral with no caramel or toast aromas and the fermentation character low. there is a mild alcohol aroma that is clean, smooth and not harsh or hot. The beer is gold with a moderate haze under a lacy 3" rocky white cap with good retention. The beer is not cloudy or murky. In the front of the mouth fruit leads with tropical fruit, hints melon, berry, and some stone fruit. Bitterness is moderate and grows stronger in the finish with a nice little bite. Hop character in the aftertaste is not sharp or harsh and the beer is not acidic and does not have a creamy, starchy or overly sweet character. Alcohol is mildly warming but is not dominating or hot or harsh. The body and carbonation are medium. With this beer Dual Citizen nails it. Everything is in balance. The beer is drinkable, repeatable, full flavored, not acidic or harsh and is very well done. I rate it 88 and will look for it again.
