New Beer Friday 10/4/19
Roosters - Cosmic Autumn Rebellion: Pumpkin spice aroma with cocoa. The taste is pumpkin spices dough and chocolates. Reminds me very much of those chocolate chip pumpkin cookies.
Epic - Oak & Orchard Tiki: Big funk & wood in the nose. The taste starts with pineapple & orange then quickly transitions into almond. The nuttiness sticks around to the finish.
Epic - Sour Brainless on Guava & Habanero: Barrel aged sour with a nice guava fruitiness. Habanero is subtle and it comes off more scratchy than hot. Nice sour.
RoHa - Plum Sour: There’s definitely brett in the nose. Taste confirms it! Some lacto sour in it too. Plum tartness is prominent. Nice beer. 4.0% - only at RoHa.
Kiitos - Peach Milkshake: Peach for sure, but not in your face. Tartness and lactose are pretty low. It has a nice round - light flavor. 4.0% - only at Kiitos.
Kiitos - Pastry Stout: Missed this one. Look for a good dose of chocolate and vanilla in this one. Available only at Kiitos. 13.0% - Available only at Kiitos.
Kiitos - 2nd Anniversary Ale: This beer is a blend of a mix of select barrel aged Imperial Red, Barley Wine and Imperial Stouts. 11.2% - Available only at Kiitos.
Kiitos - Sahti: This an old Finnish style of beer. This is made with rye and juniper branches - yes, juniper branches. It was also fermented with Kveik yeast. There's some nutty rye and a woody quality here. Hops are low and pine-like; barely detectable. 4.0% - Only at Kiitos.
Hopkins - The Basic Witch: Pumpkin Pie Chocolate Stout! Made with actual pumpkin pies. Thick and layered with spices, roasty malty notes, and lightly sweet dark chocolate finish. 4.0% - Available at Hopkins.
Hopkins - Egyptian SMaSH: This is 100% purple heirloom barley from Egypt. Hopkins used only the purple barley and cascade hops to showcase the flavor of the malt. Flavors of stonefruit dominate, with peach. 4.0% - Available at Hopkins.
Hopkins - Mint Chocolate Chip Blonde: Fresh mint in the aroma and flavor with a subtle chocolate finish. 4.0% - Only at Hopkins.
Shades - Kveik Passion Fruit: Missed this one. If you're into their Kveik beers you have a good idea of what to expect here.
Level Crossing - Look Up Amber Ale: Missed this one. 5.0% - Available at Level Crossing.
Ritual - Oil Rig: Missed this double IPA. Found at Beerhive.
Crazy Mountain - Shane McConkey: Missed this IPA. Found at DABC.
