New Beer Friday - Tiger Beat Edition
Breakside Wanderlust - Not tried this one yet. It's described as having a murky golden-yellow color with a nose of citrus fruit and tropical fruit aromas. The taste has citrus fruit and citrus zest flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with a tasty mix of citrus and tropical hop qualities. 6.6% ABV @ Beer Bar. Note: This likely wont be available until mid afternoon on Friday.
Breakside Passion Fruit - Not tried this one yet. It's described as being a 100% sour fermented wheat ale, inspired by German Berliner weisse and conditioned on passion fruit.4.0% ABV. @ Beer Bar. Note: This likely wont be available until mid afternoon on Friday.
RedRock Ori-Gin - Pours a murky apricot color with a nose of juniper berries and spicy yeast. The taste starts with tart juniper and citrus peel. bready malts come complimenting the berries. The end has a blend of tropical juice flavors that are pleasant and refreshing. Wonderful beer - drink this today! This technically isn't a new beer beer but it has a much fuller taste than in previous years, so I think it's worth your attention again. 4.0% ABV @RedRock Downtown
2 Row Random IPA #2 - The #2 version has Mosaic and Simcoe hops. The nose has a spicy nuttiness, and the distinct fruityness brought on by the Mosaic hops. The taste starts with slightly toasted caramel malt sweet flavor front that gives way to the aforementioned spicey nut-esque flavor and is rounded out by somewhat bitter hops with hints of orange and pineapple. Has a slightly crisp and prickly, smooth finish. 8.5% ABV. @ 2 Row Brewing's bottle shop.
