Flying Dog – Single Hop Warrior Imperial IPA

flying-dog-imperial-ipa-hop-warrior-web-3Americans are quite fond of Pale Ales these days, and brewers have responded with all sorts of exciting beers. Most of these IPAs feature a variety of hops, as many as five or six. Flying Dog has come out with a Single Hop Series, to give their brewers a chance to highlight the unique characteristics of individual hop varieties.

This month we are excited to offer Single Hop Warrior Imperial IPA. Brewed entirely with Warrior hops, Flying Dog says this brew is great for your summer barbeques.

“Warrior packs an in-your-face bitterness punch, but subtle notes of cinnamon and spice make it stand up to and complement big, grilled proteins.”

aAre you familiar with the clean crisp bittering of freshness of Warrior hops? Pick up a six pack of this limited release while you can. Later this summer Flying Dog will be replacing this with Single Hop Columbus.

Bodegas Volver Tarmia Hill Old Vine Monastrell

tarima-hillThis month’s featured wine is Tarima Hill Old Vine Monastrell from Bodegas Volver. This is not the first wine we’ve featured from this renowned wine maker, and probably won’t be the last.

Tarima Hill is made entirely of Monstrell grapes, and aged in french oak barrels for 14 months.

Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar gives Tarmia Hill 92 pts, describing it as:

“Sweet, penetrating and seamless on the palate, offering intense black raspberry and mocha flavors underscored by juicy acidity. At once rich and energetic, finishing with a strong thrust, supple tannins and a whiplash of floral pastilles.”

Whew, quite a strong description from industry experts!

Elysian Space Dust IPA

elsyian-space-dustFrom Seattle Washington’s Elysian Brewing, we have Space Dust IPA. The brewer describes this as a light to medium bodied India Pale Ale. Space Dust is brewed with Chinook hops for bitterness, with dry Citra and Amarillo hops added later. Space Dust weighs in at 8.2% ABV and 73 IBU.

Elysian Space Dust IPA is holding strong with a 92 point rating on Beer Advocate, of well over 800 reviews. Common tasting notes include a malty sweetness and citrus flavors, with the strong hops you expect in an IPA. Space Dust is looking even better over at Rate Beer, with a whopping average score of 97 of over 200 reviews.
