SweetWater Score! (Atlanta, GA) – Sweetwater Brewing has just released the latest from their Dank Tank Series and it’s an interesting collaboration with Relix and musician Kyle Hollingsworth of The String Cheese Incident. Senselessly fueled on an eclectic mix of El Dorado, Citra, Amarillo, and Idaho 7 hops, SweetWater Ground Score IPA is a 7.1% ABV semi-hazy India Pale Ale with a blurred clarity and juicy rich mouth feel

A Monstrous IPA (Baltimore, MD) – Heavy Seas Beer has returned a limited release for February that they righteously refer to as a “category 5 monster.” Built on almost insane amounts of Columbus hops, The Alpha Effect is a 7% ABV Hazy IPA with a clean, crisp malt profile and a piney aroma.

Proudly Offered, Humbly Crafted (Hood River, OR) – Home to many a great beer pFriem Family Brewing’s India Pale Ale is a Pacific Northwest wonder that you definitely need to chase down.  Rich with dank aromas of peach, citrus, papaya and bright lychee fruit, and grapefruit tones, pFriem IPA is a 7.2% ABV India Pale Ale with a fresh hoppy finish!

Relax, Just Do It (Orange County, CA) – The Bruery’s new spinoff brand Offshoot Beer, is offering a relaxing new year-round that you might want to chase down coming up.
