Birds Fly South Ale Project The Blue Print IPA

Birds Fly South Ale Project The Blue Print IPA, 6.5% purchased from the local Winestore is brewed not far in Greenville, South Carolina with Citra, Centennial, and Mosaic hops with a touch of Guava purée. Birds Fly South Ale Project only brews different variations of the IPA. The Blue Print IPA pours a deep yellow nearly orange color with a one and a half finger of nice white head with juicy tropical fruits aromas coming off it with a nice little hop note that lead to a juicy tropical fruits flavor with pineapple, guava, very faint grapefruit with hints of melon and a semi-creamy hoppy bitter note towards the back of the mouth with a nice tropical fruit finish and a nice slightly bitter tropical fruit aftertaste with a medium mouthfeel. Birds Fly South Ale Project The Blue Print IPA is just a tropical fruit bomb the way I really like my IPA and this IPA is well deserving of am A+ all the fruity flavors meld with the hope notes for a well balanced IPA that is awesome and flavorful and one I highly recommend trying and one that I will come back to again and again. Cheers! Please enjoy responsibly!

Throwback Thursday: Olde Saratoga Brewing Co. Death Wish Nightmare India Pale Ale

I like coffee and I like beer, so naturally, I would like coffee beer, and yes that would be correct cause I do. Most coffee beers are dark beers like stouts, porters, or brown ales. But this beer from Olde Saratoga Brewing Co. in Saratoga Springs New York brews Death Wish Nightmare India Pale Ale, 6.8% ABV. Death Wish Nightmare uses Death Wish coffee. If you haven’t had Death Wish Coffee then you are really missing out, and Death Wish Coffee is from Round Lake, New York nearby. It is good strong coffee, the strong kind of stuff you grandpa would say it’ll be hair on chest boy! This is an IPA brewed with whole Death Wish coffee beans. Death Wish Nightmare pours a light copper color with a five-finger fluffy slightly off-white head that stays for days. The aroma is like your smelling strong rich coffee being brewed on the other side of the kitchen. There is a slight earthy note there are well with a bit of an ash-like scent. Taste is roasted coffee upfront with a little ashy flavor in the middle with a bitter citrus pine on the back. The mouthfeel is medium with a nice ashy coffee finish that has a good bitter IPA and bitter coffee aftertaste. This is one balanced beer between the malts of the IPA and the coffee flavors. I say that Olde Saratoga Brewing Co. Death Wish Nightmare India Pale Ale is an A. I have never had a Coffee IPA before, and most coffee beer that I’ve had have been dark stout or porter. This was really good. I recommend that you try this beer and Death Wish Coffee! Cheers! Please enjoy responsibly
