Mybeerbuzz .com Highlights Mountain Candy (Review)

There was a bit of irony today as a care package from North Carolina arrived just days before I’m actually visiting North Carolina, but I was definitely excited to get it just in time. Today’s beer comes to us from Sycamore Brewing, a family-owned brewery in Charlotte, NC that opened in 2013. Owners Justin and Sarah Brigham have created some really unique beers and quadrupled their production since 2018. Sycamore has a beer garden & tap room and they produce not only some unique beers, but also BUBS 77-calorie hard seltzer with distribution to six southern states and more coming soon.

Today I’ll be sampling their Mountain Candy IPA. and if you’re not familiar, the beer is a “Hop-bursted” and double dry-hopped IPA, and if you know how much I enjoy a good IPA, you’ll know I can’t wait to try it….so off we go.image

Sycamore Brewing Mountain Candy IPA

ABV:  7.5%
Style:  IPA
Packaging:  16oz cans
Appearance:  Bright golden orange
Aroma:   Citrus, earthy resin & tropical fruit
Mouthfeel:   Medium
Taste:   Sweet pineapple, citrus, resinous pine, mixed tropical fruits and grapefruit
Overall:  Mountain Candy IPA really lives up to it’s name and I swear I’ve never had an IPA with so many mixed fruit flavors going on (like candy). I really liked the grapefruit and sticky pineapple, but there are lots of flavors like tangerine, mango and peach mixed in as well. Overall this beer leans a bit sweet but it has enough resinous hops to balance it all out nicely and that combination makes for a really drinkable and satisfying IPA.

Sycamore Brewing Mountain Candy IPA is available year-round in 16oz cans as well as on draft so get out there and try it for yourself…and when you do try it…be sure to let us know what YOU think.
