New Beer Friday 5/2/14



  • Without question, the greatest invention in the history of mankind is beer. Oh, I grant you the wheel was also a fine invention, but the wheel does not go nearly as well with pizza.
- Dave Berry

Wasatch Snap Down Header IPL: It's got a very clear golden color with nice head retention. The nose is mostly citrus and pine. It starts with bready malts and transitions into some herbal grassy bitterness. The end has a little cracker snap with a hint of citrus peel. A really nice session beer. 4.0% ABV @Squatters/Wasatch and their accounts.

Epic Hopulemt IPA with Citra Hops: The nose has a lot of grapefruit and tropical notes. The flavor starts with resinous pine and grapefruit. Big sweet malts full of tropical flavors come next with a hint of mango in the end. The finish is a little hot and dry. If your a fan of Citra hops you'll really love this version. Says, "Citra" in the info window on the bottle. 8.7% ABV @Epic locations & their accounts

Hive Mint Stinger Cider: Fresh apple in the nose with mint tea notes. The flavor starts with sweet apples, sulphur and mint. Hints of honey in the end with a tart sparkly finish. The mint is definitely a different take on the style. Made exclusively for McCool's Pubs

Hive Black Currant Honey Wine: This wine is made by co-fermenting black currants and Cache Valley honey. It has a robust black currant nose with sweet notes. A wine that is subtlety sweet on the front with a tart black currant bite that lingers on the tongue. A bright, clean wine that is not overly sweet. @Hive Winery

Cheers!
