Almanac goes IPA

Screen Shot 2014-07-17 at 7.27.27 PMPart of me wishes that Almanac would stay with the fruits and odd styles like Gose.  And part of me does not like the damn curlicue/scrimshaw font either.  But I guess, when in Rome.  Go hoppy.  I am sure it will be a strong beer.

“Introducing our year-round Almanac IPA in 22 oz. bottles! This copper-hued, West Coast hop bomb is brewed with a malt base of California-grown two-row barley, with additions of German Vienna, Crystal and Biscuit malts.

Then we start layering on the hops—grown in California, Oregon and Washington. We combine Apollo, El Dorado, Simcoe and Mosaic to create our own twist on the IPA style with intense aromas of grapefruit and tangerine peel, melon, pineapple and pine trees. The finish has a clean bitterness and light saltine cracker note.”

Sorry for the non-ringing endorsement in the intro.  As much as I love hops, I wish some people could overcome the urge to add another IPA to the pile. But if the beer drinking people want bread and circus.
