Beer Alert- Imperial Cream Ales, Blood Orange Sours And Hazy IPA’s

Even though it’s still snowing in much of the nation, spring’s getting closer than you might think…And brewers are looking to the season’s changing with a variety of intoxicating offerings…

Two Newbies From Cape May (Cape May, NJ) – Cape May Brewing’s prolific and this week they’ve two uber-exotic offerings…both available now in 16oz cans.

Cape May Tiny Drink Umbrella: Passionfruit, Orange, and Guava is described as a 10% ABV Imperial Smoothie Ale, that is brewed with pomegranate, black currants, and dark cherries, and is best served with a tiny drink umbrella.

Cape May Storm’s Brewin’ is another first for us, a 9.3% ABV Rum Barrel-Aged Imperial Cream Ale that was inspired by Mari Gras, hurricane lore and rum-running.

Deschutes Looks To Flanders And Wine (Bend, OR) – Deschutes is advancing the whole wine/beer thing with a new release that looks to Belgium’s Flanders region for inspiration. Deschutes Tempranillo Flanders is an 11% ABV Flanders Red-Style Ale that is refermented on Tempranillo grape must from Abacela Vineyards, then inoculated with wild yeast in wine barrels.

What Comes Around, Gose Around (Washington, DC) – A popular Atlas Brew Works limited release has earned a spot in its year-round portfolio and we’re glad that it has. Brewed with blood orange and Himalayan pink salt, Atlas Blood Orange Gose is a 4.4% ABV German traditional that’s been given a bright DC touch.

Damage Control (Placentia, CA) – The Bruery’s Offshoot Beer division has a new IPA release, and they’re always fun. Brewed with an interesting medley of Mosaic, Simcoe, and El Dorado hops and unabashedly unfiltered, Offshoot Beer’s Grain Damage is a 6.8% ABV Hazy IPA with HUGE tropical fruit flavors served up in 16oz cans.
