Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon? Yeah, great flick! But I don’t have the agility to do all that running through the treetops stuff, so today I’m going with COUCHING Tiger, Humming Dragon IPA.
The Couching Tiger is me. Chillin’ on my couch. And the Humming Dragon is today’s hazed-up juicebomb from the masters of Hop-Fu at New York’s LIC Beer Project.
With a glass of this 4.09 UT-rated brew in your hand, you too can become a master of the ancient art of Hop-Fu.
To succeed on this journey will require vast wisdom. Luckily the brewers at LIC are here to guide you. With a higher BeerAdvocate brewery rating than fellow New York craft legends KCBC and Brooklyn Brewing, they can show you the ancient ways of Haze.
Focus on Humming Dragon’s opaque golden pour and clear away all other thoughts. Inhale deeply its mandarin and grapefruit aromas — evidence of Citra Hops.
Take a sip and remain calm as notes of crisp melon and bright lime from El Dorado Hops flash across the palate, like the blade of a polished Samurai sword. Then, maintain your meditative state as hints of berry and passionfruit buzz by like throwing stars.
If you do all this correctly, you should still be sitting on your sofa in the Couching Tiger pose — relaxed, but alert. Your glass of Humming Dragon should remain in your hand and, while your tastebuds will certainly be excited, your mind should be peaceful and at one with the juice.
Now that you are a master of Hop-Fu, when your customers drop by for a taste of your stash, you can maintain your Zen and teach them the ways of the Haze.
And you don’t even have to leave the couch! Because you are a Couching Tiger, and this is your Humming Dragon.
