Sticky Icky Icky is a radiantly clear, copper-colored American India Pale Ale. It is loaded with citrusy hop aromas of oranges, nectarines, and apricots. This light, yet full bodied ale is perfectly balanced by equal parts sweet malt and juicy hops. A medium bitterness along with a subtle earthiness lingers in the finish. This new American India Pale Ale is what Ryan Hale, the head brewer at the Bellaire pub, referred to as his quintessential IPA. Ryan combined all of his favorite hops resulting in what he described as “pure juicy goodness”. This beer is loaded with all of the big citrus and fruity flavors American hops can offer.

Tap: muddled & hazy, unfiltered orange body with a foamy & somewhat soapy white head that survives as a thick collar for a while. Aroma is true to its name; loads of dank, pungent hops, fruity, citric, & pretty damn sticky with a faint bready malt back-end. Taste is straight from the dope sack, pungent & oily with pine, resin, leaves, & a finishing herbal note. Citric character is lighter but still very noticeable, especially mid-palate. Nice bitter bite, crispy dry finish with only a light kiss of malt. Another tasty & hoppy brew from Shorts.

On tap at the brewpub. Amber pour with a white head. Lots of citrusy hops with a sweet malt backbone. Another delicious take on bitterness from Short’s.
