Summer is fleeting and American craft brewers are addressing things with intriguing new IPAs you’re gonna want to have around this weekend.
Modus Hoperandi’s Big Brother (Durango, CO) – Ska Brewing Modus Hoper is a popular IPA that has stood the test of time. . After its first release in 2008, it quickly rocketed to become Ska’s flagship beer and remains their best-selling beer to date— a rarity in today’s modern craft beer climate. Unabashedly doubling down on a legend, Ska Double Modus is a 9% ABV Imperial India Pale Ale that like the original is bold combination of hoppy and malty and bitter and smooth…only bigger.
“Modus Hoperandi has always been a beer along the lines of the classic West Coast style of IPA’s, and staying true to its namesake, we really didn’t change the recipe for Double Modus,” said Ska COO Steve Breezley. “We simply doubled it. Now at 9% ABV, the same big, striking citrus and pine hop character is there, but we turned it up to eleven”
Hazy & Juicy (Waitsfield, VT) – Lawson’s Finest Liquids has a new addition to their Sunshine Family that spent years in development and now available all year-round. Crafted with a luscious blend of Citra and Mandarina Bavaria and available now throughout the brewery’s nine state reach, Lawson’s Hazy Rays IPA is an approachable 5% ABV India Pale Ale with a tropical medley of tangerine, clementine, and mandarin oranges notes that lay soft on the palate and a touch of sweetness to its finish.
Hitting The Mark (Portland, Me) – With more craft breweries than ever before, brewing serious non-alcoholic beer, ACB has expanded its coverage to include new NA beers that matter. And Kit NA, Maine’s first and only exclusively non-alcoholic brewery, matters.
Crafted to remove gluten and vegan-friendly, Kit On Your Mark is an award-winning NA Blonde Ale with light grapefruit notes and a crisp hop-forward finish. And like all Kit NA beers it’s conveniently available via Amazon.
