What a year it has been – I need (another) drink! There are days where I truly believe can / new beer releases are what keeps me going, LOL.
Wooden Robot Brewery – South End
Green Beast NE IPA 7.5% — First for a reason! I will drink this until it evaporates so get it while you can. This ‘green ghost’ will be gone soon made with ghostly Grungeist hops + DDH w/ galaxy.
West By Southeast IPA 7.2% — an awesome West Coast-Style IPA brewed with Epiphany Pilsner malt for a crisp body + hopped with juicy Citra and Grungeist hops.
The Eighth State Brewing Co – Greenville
Dreaming Hard Seltzer 6.2% — Y’all. Clear as ever. Crafted with rainbow sherbet, marshmallow, lemon, grapefruit, and Madagascar vanilla. One of the BEST seltzers I may ever have.
High Branch Brewing Co – Concord
Dreamin’ DIPA 8.2% — another High Branch BANGER. No lactose, loaded with oats and flaked wheat, DDH w/ Citra, centennial, and strata. Tropical, a little dank, heavenly.
Resident Culture Brewing Co – Plaza Midwood
Perception Check DIPA 8.1% — DDH with tons of galaxy, Vic secret, Citra, Amarillo, & mosaic. BIG AND JUICY, duh.
Lightning Drops NE IPA 6.5% — Going down too easy hopped with Citra (the unintended theme for this post), Mosaic, and Galaxy.
Eurisko Beer Co – Asheville
Tank Wipe West Coast IPA 7% — Subtle piney/dankness going on, heavily dry hopped with Azacca and Chinook. Very solid.
Highland Brewing Co – Asheville
Wanderlush IPA 5.6% — notes of lemon/melon. Hazy yet super mellow and super crushable!
Hopfly Brewing Co – Rocky Mount
Bocce Backspin NE IPA 7% — Did you guys guess this is hopped with Citra, Azacca, and HBC 586? Juicy/mango vibes from this one. Patio pounder even at a higher percentage so be careful!
Divine Barrel Brewing – NoDa
Strawberry Rhubarb Sour 6% — Let’s end on a different note! Brewed with strawberries, rhubarb, Madagascan vanilla, graham crackers, cinnamon, and lactose. Soft, creamy, literally pie in liquid form. Perfection!
Will work on the next beer write up having more options than IPA. I’m guessing you can tell who picked a majority of the beers (Kasee) LOL. Thanks for stopping by!
