New Beer Friday 11/4/16

Let's face it. We're all winners when New Beer Friday is involved.

Squatters Solstice Saison - Light coriander and clove round out subtle chocolate flavors in this deceptively light looking - but flavorful "spiced" saison. 4.0% ABV @ Squatters

Uinta Jack Rabbit Barrel Aged Saison - Pine, juniper and a bit of oak compliment this lightly phenolic saison. Some cereal flavors as well along with a slightly boozy burn. Finishes with a tiny bit of tartness. 9.3% ABV  @ Uinta, Bayou, Beerhive

Roosters Daily Rise and Shine - Definitely coffee forward. The base is semi-chocolaty which compliments the coffee flavors well. Made with Layton's Daily Rise Coffee. If you like Java stouts? it's worth your time. 4.0% ABV  @ Roosters

Strap Tank Dirty Politician - an American brown ale with notes of milk-chocolate and Reese's peanut butter cups. 4.0% ABV @ Strap Tank

Lagunitas Born Yesterday Fresh Hop Pale Ale -  The nose on this is like fresh fruit salad full of peach, mango, pineapple, grapefruit, caramelized bready malt, with dank earthy herbal grass and spicy resinous pine. The taste is far more citrusy with notes of orange, tangerine and subtle grapefruit pith. There are also some sweet mango notes, followed by peach and pineapple. Not much malt but it's present. Fantastic pale ale. 7.0% ABV @Beerhive, Bayou, Dick and Dixie's, Lucky 13

Wasatch UT-X Azacca - Light caramel malts with a big tropical fruit hop profile. This is Wasatch's rotating session IPA series. Always worth trying. 4.0% ABV   @Wasatch

Deschutes/Hair of the Dog Collage 2 Smell is of sweet malts, bourbon, raisins, oak, vanilla, cherry, heaven. Taste follows the nose with boozy raisins being the most prominent. Dark alcohol soaked fruits, tobacco and whiskey come next. Slightly pruney and tart in the end. Wine barrel is also noticeable. This is a boozy beast. approach with caution. A year or two in the cellar will do wonders for this. 14.3%  @Beerhive

Cheers!
