Indie Brewing in south DTLA has a new entry into their Tiki Style IPA with Catapult “A hazy IPA with pineapple, honeydew, banana, coconut and tangerine.” Sounds like a fruit explosion.
I wasn’t a big fan of the label art on the Surfin’ Bird IPA collaboration which makes a background appearance in the new IPA and doubling down on clothes wearing cartoon animals is giving me some Hanna Barbera vibes that I don’t associate with bitter beers.
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.
I am in the midst of a beercation and apparently so is BarrelHouse Brewing of Paso Robles who have this ’50s evocative Hazy DIPA now on the market…
Roots Habanero Stout Release
3 p.m., Friday 11/06/09, Roots Organic Brewing,1520 S.E. Seventh Ave.
“An Irish style Stout brewed with chocolate malt, chocolate wheat & five pounds of coco nibs in the mash. We then boil this beer for two hours during which we slowly inoculated six pounds of organic free trade semi sweet chocolate syrup made by Alma Chocolates. After fermentation we dry hopped the Stout with 100 chopped Habaneros. ”
If this is anything like the McMenamin’s pepper beer then I will not be able to get close to it before the blast gets me.
