With Thanksgiving and Black Friday now in the rearview mirror, the winter holidays are officially ON. And we’ve some fun new releases that pair smartly with ‘Tis the season.
Call Me (Comstock, MI) –Perrin Brewing has announced the final installment of its rotating IPA series for 2020, a special line of beers which allows Perrin’s brewers to explore the breadth and depth of hop flavors.
“We designed the series around the common characteristics of Hazy IPAs,” said Director of Brewing Operations, Connor Klopcic. “We started with Juicy, then moved into the summer season and played off tropical flavors with Tropical IPA, and now we’re ending the year on a bright note with zesty Citrus.”
A festive celebration of Lemondrop, Citra, fruity Galaxy and complex Mosaic hops, Perrin Call Me Hazy – Citrus IPA is a 7.5% ABV India Pale Ale with a hazy mouthfeel and just enough tart lemon zest to keep things bright.
Winter Texas-Style (Dallas, TX) – Deep Ellum Brewing has a new winter offering that they admit is “as confusing as the concept of winter in Texas.” Crafted with cocoa nibs and coffee, Deep Ellum’s Deep Winter is a 7.3% ABV eye-opening Golden Porter with the roasted character and body of a porter, but not the dark color traditionally associated with the style.
Get Baked (Frederick, MD) – Maryland-based Flying Dog Brewery has released its final Brewhouse Rarities Series offering of the year…so you’ve been warned. Bursting with sweet baked apple tones and traditional warming spices, Flying Dog Brewhouse Rarities: Apple Pie Blonde Ale is an 8.2% ABV limited release with a fresh fall apple flavor.
4 Seasons Goes Nitro (Vista, Ca / Nampa, ID) – Mother Earth Brewing has a new addition to its quarterly Barrel-Aged Series that they describe as “a dessert-a-holic’s delight.” Lactose enriched and NITRO-infused, Mother Earth 4Seasons is a 10.9 % ABV Imperial Mocha Stout loaded with chocolate and whole coffee beans.
