Newbies


Always great to pop a new cork or have somebody pour you a new brew.  The two most recents…

Was in Rehoboth Beach so had to of course visit one of my favorite breweries, Dogfish Head.  They have some brews on tap they you can only get while standing under that roof.  The one I opted for was the QuatroSanque.  ‘an intensely citrusy IPA made with blood orange juice, sliced lemon and orange zest. Dark and medium crystal malts provide a deep amber color and sweet caramel/toffee notes to balance the the tartness of the citrus. Generous dry-hopping with Centennial and HBC431 dry-hops at a massive 2 pounds per barrel pushes the citrus and tropical juiciness to the next level. ‘  7.25% ABV (served in 10 oz. pours).  This stuff was smooth, not too hoppy and just refreshing.  I was close to buying a growler…

LAM Pinotage.  A bit earthier than normal, some tobacco in there, had minimal leather and smoke notes, but very interesting.  I tasted some fizz, but it was a ‘normal’ bottle.  It was a VERY light red.  Was definitely the most unique Pinotage I’ve tasted.  About $20/bottle.
