New Beer Friday 10/18/19
Epic - Quintuple Barrel Big Bad Baptist: The final release of this year's Big Bad Baptist variants is finally here. This beer has a symphony of flavors that are silky and complex with rye spiciness, fudge, cherry cordial, espresso and coconut cream pie. You’d think that with all of the barrel addition here, it would be a hot mess, but it all comes together in a fairly tame manner. 11.0 % - Available at Epic starting today.
Epic - Oak and Orchard Cherry Vanilla: This new barrel aged sour takes on flavors very similar to cherry sorbet with a touch of balsamic vinegar added. this is damn tasty and propbably quite different from most barrel aged sours that you had. 6.5% - Available today, in Epic's new 32 ounce crowlers.
Saltfire - Series of Singularities Series, Idaho GEM: This new IPA is made with 100% Idaho Gem hops. The flavor profile here is very much citrus and fruity up front, while the tail end takes on more of an herbal floral profile. Very much a west coast style IPA. Quite nice. 7.3% - Available at Saltfire.
Squatters Mosaic Pale: This new pale ale is double dry hopped with Mosaic hops, and boy you can taste 'em. There's a serious amount of citrus and tropical flavors happening here, but it's not a turbid mess. Highly recommended. 4.0% - Only at Squatters downtown location.
Shades - Raspberry Bomb: The name says it all with this one. A massive amount of raspberries were added to this Kveik based beer. Basically if you're a fan of tart raspberry, you'll love this. Very little lactose was added - which served to smooth some of the more tart edges and make it more drinkable. Super fruity and tasty. 5.9% - Available now at Shades.
Crazy Mountain - Local's Stash Grapefruit Pale Ale: Missed out on this one. The Local's Stash Series is a rotating series of styles offered for a one time run. You likely will not see this again so if you're interested, get on it! 7.0% - Found at the Bayou.
