Sugar Coated Pony Kisses is a 5.8% ABV/55 IBU IPA from Stable 12 Brewing Company (Phoenixville, PA). This is the latest hazy creation from veteran head brewer Mike Deger. This beer was brewed with Pale and Munich malts, flakes oats, lactose sugar, and Falconer’s Flight, Mosaic, and Mandarina Bavaria hops.
Pouring to a deep and hazy orange, you’ll get a moderate head in your glass, with great lacing. Aromas of grapefruit, tangerine and melon from the hops, with a little pine hop as well.
Flavors of grapefruit, honeydew, melon, and some piney resin from the hops shine through. Mandarina Bavaria hops add tangerine notes, giving a unique addition to the flavor profile. The mouthfeel on this one is soft from the lactose sugar, and gives a great sweetness to the finish.
