New Beer Friday 12/01/17
Kiitos' India Pale Ale: A straight-up west coast style IPA. Full of citrus peel and pine. On the drier side. A very nice high point beer - out of the gate for Kiitos. 6.1% ABV. available at Kiitos
Kiitos' Double IPA: This is likely being canned as you read this, so I've not tried the finished product yet. Since they nailed the IPA, expect nice things from this double version. 8.5% ABV. available at Kiitos
Kiitos' EPA - Chinook: This single hop Extra Pale Ale has grapefruit peel with a bit of pine. The malts are light - super tasty. 4.0% ABV. available at Kiitos
Kiitos' EPA - Mosaic: This single hop Extra Pale Ale has tangerine and bit of tropical fruits. Same malt bill as above. Very tasty. 4.0% ABV. available at Kiitos
Kiitos' Blackberry Sour: Very tart, yet the berries still seem to pop! Plus it has a vey nice scarlett hue. So nice. 4.0% ABV. available at Kiitos
Kiitos' Coconut Stout: Very tasty. The coconut is subtle and it play very well with the roasted malts in the stout. Damn tasty! 4.0% ABV. available at Kiitos
Kiitos' Holiday Ale: This is basically gingerbread beer, so proceed with this impression. I think it delivers as described. 4.0% ABV. available at Kiitos
Epic's Chapulin Gose: If the whole cricket thing freaks you out, please don't let it affect your impressions. I got nothing from this beer, but a lemon tartness and salt. A very nice gose. 4.3% ABV. available at Epic.
Epic's Pulp Addiction: One of Epic's more subtle interpretations on the East Coast IPA. Sweet, juicy and semi-dry. Very nice! 7.3% ABV. available at Epic
Uinta’s The Friesian: Not very Belgian-like. Super roasty with a good dose of hops. Some Brett funk with subtle tartness. If you can hang on until March 2018, I think this will be much better. 10% ABV. available at Uinta.
Desert Edge's Bears Ears Amber: This is an unfiltered American amber ale brewed with centennial hops. The aroma is malty caramel and citrus. The flavor is toasty malt and caramel balanced by a citrusy hop character. 4.0% ABV. available at D.E.
Cascade's Figaro: Dusty dry sourness with raw cheese and fruit. A tasty wild ale. 9.5% ABV. available at Beer Bar.
Cascade's Manhattan NW: Missed out on this one. 10.3% ABV. available at Beer Bar.
Cascade/Terreux's One Way or Another: Missed out on this one. 7.9% ABV. available at Beer Bar.
To ØL's Fuck Art Winter's Coming: Yes, this the actual name of the beer. Sadly I have no notes on this one. 8.0% ABV. Available at the Bayou
Trois Dames' L’Amoureuse Blanche: Missed out on this one. 8.0% ABV. Available at the Bayou
Haandbryggeriet's Bestefar: Missed out on this one. 9.0% ABV. Available at the Bayou
Sorry the notes are brief, but this was too much beer for this beer dweeb on a school night.
