Let me tell you a number.
... That's how many times I accidentally wrote Bruce Springsteen instead of Spruce Springsteen in the above heading, which feels like some pretty powerful muscle memory from typing two words into Spotify. It's always a moment of joy when craft beer and The Boss collide, and here they've done so as part of HPA's Even Flow mixed-pack. Tallboy & Moose have taken a unique path, infusing fresh pine sprigs alongside Centennial and Mosaic. Much like the great man himself, it's an American classic with a deep golden orange body and a bit of richness to the malt. The hops add grapefruit, pine potpourri, floral notes and fresh grass with a bitter finish.
Cosmic Crush from Wayward, on the other hand, is a hoppy American pilsner (which I managed to write correctly in one go). Here, the focus is on Aussie hop Eclipse, which brings ripe mandarin, melon and a touch of bubblegum that lingers long on the palate.
