Two Roads – Honeyspot Road IPA

ABV: 6%
IBU: 55

“Two Roads Brewing Company was founded in 2012 by four friends who dreamed for years of starting a craft brewery. We foster a “road less traveled” philosophy in the beers we make and how we make them. In that spirit, Phil Markowski, our award-winning Brewmaster and 27 year craft beer veteran has created an extensive lineup that takes a unique twist on classic beer styles. Two Roads was named one of the ten best breweries in America by Paste Magazine and has won many awards including gold for Belgian Lambic style Ale in 2016 at the Great American Beer Festival.
Two Roads isn’t just the logo on our brewery building, it’s our philosophy. Life always seems to offer up two ways to go. It just so happens, we prefer the one less taken and having some fun along the way – in our lives, our careers and especially for our beers! Now our “road less traveled” philosophy is being brought to life in the beers that we create and how we create them.” – Two Roads

HoneySpot road IPA is named after the exit in Stratford, Connecticut you take to get to Two Roads brewery. It is also one of Two Roads year-round beers. This IPA is brewed with wheat and left unfiltered giving it a very light and smooth mouthfeel. A thin hazy gold body topped with less than a finger worth of head which forms unbroken lacing to the bottom of your pint glass. Pour this beer and you’re immediately hit with scents of pine, lemon peel, light baked honey bread, apricot, and floral notes. As you swirl this beer around in your mouth you will notice subtle hints of citrus, white tea with honey, and fresh cut grass with a slight bitterness in a short and sweet finish. This beer is moderately complex, yet it hits all the right spots. It is real easy drinking, and smooth…perfect for a hot summer day.
