New Beer/Brewery Friday 10/19/18

I loves me some New Beer/Brewery Friday. This edition features new beers from Cedar City's new Policy Kings Brewing Co. It's another good week for beer in Utah.

Speaking of new breweries; I've updated the Utah Brewery Map above, cleaned it up and added some logos on the pins to make it easier on the eye. You may see some interesting additions. Any feedback is welcome.

Policy Kings IPA: I've not tried this. Look for a west coast style IPA. 8.5% Available at Policy Kings

Policy Kings NE IPA: I've not tried this. Look for a North East Style IPA. It's described by some as having a little more bitterness than is typical for style 6.5%. Available at Policy Kings

Policy Kings Wheat Ale: I've not tried this. Look for a bready and toasty ale with little yeast esters. 6.5%. Available at Policy Kings

Fisher Whups Pale Ale: This "wet hop" pale ale was made with fresh Idaho 7 hops and boy does it taste fresh. It's simple clean and citrusy with medium bitterness. Made me wet.... er.... a fan, a wet hop fan I mean. 4.0%. Available at Fisher

Fisher Democracy Pale Ale: . medium malt sweetness with a salad of citrus, floral and piney hops. Another crushable pale ale. 4.0%. Available at Fisher

Fisher RYEot: Quite light in color. Another tasty pale ale, though the rye component is a little subdued. I'd love to taste more of the spic rye  4.0%. Available at Fisher.

New Belgium Oakspire: This beer is fairly malt forward with a good amount of oak and toasty flavors. The wood adds a slight vanilla quality. The ABV is very well hidden, be careful of this one. 9.0%. Found at Beer Bar, Dick n Dixies.

New Belgium Sour Saison: A medium amount of sourness here. I don't get a lot of saison here, but you can tell it's definitely a Belgian style base beer. Tasty. 7.0%. Found at Beer Bar, Beerhive.

New Belgium Honey Orange Tripel: Tastes of Orange peel, candied sugar, white bread, peach and vanilla. Definitely on the sweeter side of the style, but it's pleasing nonetheless. The honey is most prevelent in the finish. with some spicy notes from the yeast. 10.0%. Found at Beer Bar, Beerhive.

Cheers!
