COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
“Yonder Cities" is a collaborative beer between DC Brau and Union Brewing of Baltimore. This Farmhouse IPA is quite the standout with its beautiful balance of malt, hops and yeast. Jeff and Kevin worked hard to craft a beer with a spicy yeast character and a bright vivid hop profile. Simcoe and and Citra hops bring white grapefruit, juicy nectarine and zesty lemon peel to the nose and palate while the proprietary saison yeast balances peppery earth tones with a crisp tart finish. There are two version of this beer. One brewed at Union and one brewed at DC Brau. The only difference being base malts. We used Pilsner Malt and Union used 2 row.

Foxbush (1322) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - AUG 25, 2013
Draft at Capital Ale House Innsbrook This was confusing. CAH said it was a Farmhouse IPA. It looked and tasted more like a Belgian Ale. The ale had a white foamy head with a hazy lemon yellow color. The ale had bitterness that was felt in the back of the mouth. Carbonation was average on a light body. Finish had the typical belgian finish of herbal hops. Not the IPA I was hoping for.

Definitely get the malts and hops in this with some hints of lemon. Should have gotten a few more cans of this.

Tap at Churchkey. Low haze bright, glowing mango pour. Thicker white head. Nose is quite herbal, minty, some animal, gamey melon, phenols give a diaper character. Taste is extremely powdery and dry. Palate is dry, powdery, chalky.

nimbleprop (5211) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAR 23, 2013
On tap at the brewery. Pours a hazy, straw gold with some fluffy white head. Nice spicy, earthy nose, dried orange peel, lemon peel, orange soda, white peppercorns, straw, yeast. Flavor is very nice, lightly sweet, very spicy, white pepper, candy sugar, a little coriander, dried lemon peel, orange zest, hay, some nice zippy scallion. Assertively hopped without being offensive. Dry, refreshing finish.

Thanks, Chris! Loads of Citra in the nose with some earth and floral character. Bit of white pepper. Good yeast character, but hop forward.
