Short’s Freedom of ’78

Packaged 4/26/2023, tasted on 5/26/2023.

Fresh aroma of flowery hops and smooth caramel malts. Flavor of hop bitterness is quickly squashed by a full-palate fruit flavor, that finishes slightly thick and sticky with some dry hop flavor lingering in the background. Your mouth recognizes it just had a full flavored beer, but there’s surprisingly little to no heaviness left in the mouth.

4.5 out of 5 stars.

Short’s Spring IPL

Bright flowery/citrus hop aroma. Clean taste of hops with a kind of bitterness that doesn’t have an edge to it. Overall smooth on the palate, but with lots of hop flavor. Minor hop bitterness in the aftertaste, even if the mouthfeel still is soft. Interesting combination that’s both sessionable and bitter at the same time.

4 out of 5 stars.
