Burial Beer Co. & Alvarado Street Brewery Endless Surfer Dry-Hopped Pils, 4.8% is a collaboration between the two and brewed at Burial in Asheville, North Carolina with malt from Admiral Malting and double dry-hopped with Alvarado Street Brewery’s (Monterey, California) hand-selected Motueka and Aramis hops. Endless Surfer which I purchased from my favorite local bottle shop Pop The Top, pours a light hazy lemon-yellow color with a dark hue to it and a big four finger bright white head that fades slowly into thick whips of lacing throughout the glass giving you a light/faint lemon aroma with a nice bit of biscuity malt that’s aromatic with a very faint vegetal notes that beckons you into a light lemon biscuit flavor with soft but subtle malt notes hitting your tongue with a nice little hop note jumping in the end/back of the tongue/mouth with a nice refreshing finish that has a little hoppy note and a nice lemon breaded biscuit aftertaste with the slightest touch of a hoppy notes with a light mouthfeel. Burial Beer Co. & Alvarado Street Brewery Endless Surfer Dry-Hopped Pils is an interesting take on a Pilsner that has a good balance of soft hoppy flavors that are light as not to overpower your tastebuds, and yes this is a sessionable beer that I give an A too and highly recommend you try it. I have yet to have a bad Burial Beer Co. beer. Cheers! Please enjoy responsibly!
From Oslo Norway Stillwater Artisanal Action Bronson’s 7000, 5.0% ABV is a collaboration between Stillwater Artisanal and rapper, celebrity Action Bronson and is a dry-hopped sour ale brewed with Muscat Grapes, yeast, wheat, and barley. 7000 pours a light orange color with a thin one and a half finger white head that quickly fizzy away giving off slight musty grape aroma with sour notes following it. The flavor is light with a dry musty grape sour note with some citrus notes fading in with a nice tart sour citrus grape finish with a tart citrus aftertaste that kings till the next sip, with a light mouthfeel. Stillwater Artisanal Action Bronson’s 7000 is very easy drinking, crushable with just enough flavor to get the dry-hopped sour beer point across your taste buds. I found that this is like a fruit wine and that’s not a bad thing, I give Stillwater Artisanal Action Bronson’s 7000 an A. This is one of those beers for when you want something, a beer, that isn’t beer and 7000 is going to really fill you up as some beer do. It’s light on filling. I would recommend Stillwater Artisanal Action Bronson’s 7000 and will be having this many more times. Cheers! Please enjoy responsibly!
Victory Brewing Company in Downingtown Pennsylvania brews Home Grown Dry-Hopped Lager 4.8 ABV, which I purchased from their newer brewery here in Charlotte, Brewers at 4001 Yancey which is cooperation with Southern Tier Brewing Company, and they also have Sixpoint Point Company brand portfolio. Home Grown is brewed with Azacca, Citra, and and Mosaic whole flower hops. Home Grown pours a golden hue with a one finger bright white head that fades a bit quick with hoppy crisp aromas that are slightly citrusy with a taste of orange and grapefruit with a hoppy note towards the back of the tongue with a faint crispness and a little bitter finish that is juicy with grapefruit and orange. Aftertaste doesn’t stay like with it hopped citrus fruit notes with a light mouthfeel. This is a crushable beer, you can just pound this with now mouth fatigue. I give Victory Brewing Company Home Grown Dry-Hopped Lager a B+. I enjoyed it this well brewed hopped lager, and you should too. It’s good for a hot after yard work and such, but I would’ve like the lager side of this to be turned up a notch but it was otherwise good. This would be a beer worth going back too. Cheers! Please enjoy responsibly!
Victory Brewing Company Charlotte Brew’d Juice Boost Dry-Hopped Sour Ale, 7.2% ABV. I had this is a Charlotte Brew’d Flight at Victory and Southern Tier Brewing Companies Charlotte brewery, Brewers at 4001 Yancey, so I bought a four pack. Juice Boost pours a golden apple juice color with a one and a half finger white head with fruity aroma of citrus and faint grape wafting from it with a bit of a slight hop note. Taste on Juice Boost is fruity on first contact with orange some grapefruit that is followed by a faint hop note that is tart and carries itself to the middle of mouth with a slight dry note on the back of the mouth and continues on with a fruity dry citrus finish with a slight hoppy dry orange juice aftertaste with a light mouth feel. Victory Brewing Company Charlotte Brew’d Juice Boost Dry-Hopped Sour Ale is easy to drink and with an ABV of 7.2% is slightly dangerous but overall it’s refreshing and I give this Sour Ale a B+. The sourness could be a little more pronounced on this with just a little more hop note as well, but Victory Brewing Company Charlotte Brew’d Juice Boost Dry-Hopped Sour Ale is not a bad beer and one that I would recommend. Cheers! please enjoy responsibly!
