New Beer Friday's "Spicy" Edition

Not even Press Secretary "Spicy" can deny that this is one Hell of a great New Beer Friday. "We have the best New Beer Friday, nobody has it better".

Bohemian's Lebowski Beer: This is a light golden lager showcasing Polish Lubelski hops. Prominent floral, lemon, and spicy aromas are followed by a soft herbal hop flavor. Graham cracker and grainy malt sweetness is balanced with the perfect bitterness that abides to your palate. This beer really ties the room together, Dude. 4.0% ABV. This is a super small batch brew available for a limited time at Brewvies and at the Bohemian Brewery.

Uinta's West Coast - Style IPA: Tangerine, grapefruit, peach, pineapple and mango. Light toasted bread comes next. The sweetness from the malt creates ghostly melon and berry notes, that transition into white pepper and pine. Towards the end an herbal and grassy earthiness rounds out the flavors leaving a dry and slightly puckering finish. 6.3% ABV @ Uinta - soon everywhere.

Epic's CitralushThe nose has tropical fruit, hops and malt. The flavors are pithy grapefruit, resiny hops and malt. The finish is lightly bitter with a fruity hops aftertaste. 7.2% ABV. Limited supply in growlers at Epic's bottle shop.  


Elysian's Superfuzz: The nose has citrus with herbal hoppy notes. The taste has mellow blood orange citrus flavors, mild hops, very present dryness bite mixed in with a minor floral flavor. It has an obvious extract taste, but it doesn't deter fro the enjoyment too much. 6.4% ABV @ DABC, Beer Bar.

Shades of Pale's Misconception Belgian IPAThe nose is fruity with straw, Belgian yeast notes, bread and citrusy hops. Flavor follows, with some of the fruit ester notes from the yeast well melded with citrusy hops. Fairly dry and not overly bitter. 8.0% ABV @ SOP's Pub and bottle shop.


Shades of Pale's Berlinerweiss w/ Plum: Moderately tart. The plum adds some freshness. It basically like unripened plum. Light and totally crushable. Very limited. 3.5% ABV @ SOP's Pub 

Shades of Pale Brett Saison w/ cherry: This will be bottled this afternoon. I'm really looking 
 forward to trying this one. Only at SOP's Pub and bottle shop.

Shades of Pale's Hogs Head #4 Bourbon Barrel Belgian Quad: Very reminiscent of Boulevard's Bourbon Barrel Quad. Sweet candy sugar with sour berry tartness and a Bourbon back. AND it's in a 12oz. bottle. This is a nicely complex beer, one of SOP's best beers yet. 13.0% ABV @ SOP's Pub and bottle shop.

Strap Tank's Ypres Saison: I haven't made it down there yet to try this. This Saison is made with 100lbs blueberries/50lbs blackberries. I really need to try this. 4.0% ABV


Fisher's Yellowbelly Amarillo Sunshine: Not tried this one yet. The name has my attention though. Described as crisp and citrusy. 4.0% ABV @ Fisher

Anyone know what happened with all the sours that Epic was supposed to release during April?

They did three out of the four. Plum & Apricot, Syrah Sour and Dark Sour. Not sure what the hold up was on the fourth

Jai Alai is on its way. I tried to special order but DABC claims that the wine store on 2nd south 3rd east has it (Store 35) . I have not verified this yet and the Inventory querry doesnt account for this.

It is here. It may already be allocated
