Episode #213: I Beat yoU

In this previously recorded episode, Dan wades into some deep, hoppy waters again care of the gypsy brewer Mikkeller’s I Beat yoU offering.

Mikkeller I Beat yoU Imperial IPA

I Beat yoU is a 9.75% Imperial India Pale Ale brewed at BrewDog in Aberdeen, Scotland. A neat follow-up to the 1000 IBU beer they make.

Appearance

Fairly hazy, brilliant and deep orange amber in color.

Aroma

Hop resin with citrus and piney back on the nose.

Taste

Zips across the tongue, intensely bitter almost like tasting hop syrup.

Mouthfeel

Viscous on the tongue with a nice weight to it.

Overall

For sure in the 100 IBU vicinity. ONLY FOR HOP LOVERS. My palate definitely took a beating with this beer, but it was definitely worth it for the experience. Pretty sure this would overpower almost any food you attempted to have with it.

Episode #211: 2xRye

In this previously recorded episode, Dan gets a recommendation for a Double Rye IPA from Southern Tier Brewing – 2xRye.

Southern Tier Brewing 2xRye

2xRye is a 8.1% Double Rye India Pale Ale brewed with three varieties of hops, five types of malts by Southern Tier as an autumn seasonal since 2013.

Appearance

Brilliantly clear, orange/copper, reminiscent of a nice Canadian whiskey. The pour resulted with a moderately-small head with fairly tight bubbles.

Aroma

Sweet aroma with a hint of rye bread as expected.

Taste

Very tasty and unique. Rye-forward with the other malts balanced with the hop bill, adding to the complexity and no detectable alcohol.

Mouthfeel

The rye and companion malts merge together for a textured and delightful mouthfeel with a medium body.

Overall

If you are looking for a balanced fall beer, this is one to seek out. While hop lovers might not flock to this beer, I believe it will please most people’s palates. Pair with moderate, seasonal dishes.
