Small batch IPA (Fly Over This series)

Zipline Brewing Co., 2100 Magnum Circle, Lincoln, or

Available: In 750-ml bottles at retailers, on tap in select bars and restaurants

When: Debuted April 2, on market for four to six weeks

ABV: 7 percent

The brewery calls it an overindulgence of hops, a mix of blueberry, tangerine, papaya and pine. Eric Bahm of Moran’s Liquor calls it tropical, and a little earthy. “This one’s kind of like sucking on a piece of melon,” the Certified Cicerone, or beer tour guide, said. The aroma is fruity, the mouth feel creamy and the kick, the 7 percent ABV, is camouflaged. So be prepared. “The alcohol is well hidden,” he said. “But it will punch you in the face.”
