Map to the Stars

You can’t really see the stars here in L.A.. You have to drive out to a Dark Sky community for that. But if you have the new DIPA from Trademark Brewing, you can be guided even through the haze in the pint glass…

Star Guide has your Idaho Gem, your Strata, and of course, Galaxy hops.

From NoHo to Van Nuys

Traffic trumps all in L.A. but generally, North Hollywood to Van Nuys is an easy ride and the breweries representing each valley city have joined forces for, what else? A hazy.

But I do like the evocative artwork on the label and the bottom band that is carrying the info. Might make a good Ho-ho-ho gift.

Changing Times

Boomtown Brewery  has “changed” up their latest Artist canned IPA with Changeling.  Here is more info from the DTLA brewery. “Designed by the artist, activist and environmental consultant Lucia Gaia Pohlman , Changeling was born out of the chaos of 2020 and is a call to invite us to examine our place in the world and consciously decide how we step into a new future together with a beer in hand. 

The artist describes the work as, “Not quite humanoid creatures dancing in a new way.” These figures house a wallop of delight in the form of a Hazy DIPA, that clocks in at 8.4% ABV and IBU 35. The beer has a nose of Guava, Orange Creamsicle, Hop Spice with flavors of Pomelo, Lemon Pith and Peach. Made with Galaxy, Mosaic and Cascade hops.”

Comfort Level

The two collaborating breweries for this hazy DIPA need no introduction. But the reason for highlighting Get Comfortable 2021 is not the hops but rather, the fact that this is another charity beer. You get great beer and the world gets better.

Kick Kikokiko

I skipped over one Ogopogo beer because I was not a fan of the label but I am back with a cool Halloween but in mauve themed hazy DIPA. And it may drive you insane. Or so this Kikokiko myth goes.
