Indeed Let it Ride IPA Release Tuesday

indeedLIRMarch is almost here, and despite the waist-high snow in my front yard, I have hope for spring as spring seasonal beer releases start to take place. Indeed Brewing Company is helping to bring at least a small smile to my face with the release of their Let it Ride I.P.A. at Blue Door Longfellow on Tuesday, February 25.

In addition to draft availability, this year Let it Ride will be available for your imbibing pleasures in 12 oz. cans over the next couple of weeks as well.

At 90 IBUs and 6.8% ABV, Let it Ride packs a nice hop punch that’s offset by a malt presence that includes both American and English Crystal malts as well as German dark Munich malt. The beer features some newer aroma hop varieties in the form of Mosaic, El Dorado and Calypso. Brewer Josh Bischoff says “There’s a bunch of aroma in these new varieties of hops that we weren’t getting from hops, even a few years ago. Expect big fruity aromas containing, but not limited to, dank citrus, pineapple, blueberry and tropical fruits.”

Let it Ride Details:

IBU: 90
Hops: Mosaic, Calypso, El Dorado

August Schell Fresh Hop Pilsner Series

mosaicpilsOn the heels of last year’s super-awesome Stag Series beer, the fresh-hopped Citra Pils, our friends at August Schell Brewing Co. have announced that they’ll be brewing a fresh hopped pilsner each fall. Jace Marti tells us that everyone at the brewery had a blast brewing Citra Pils last year and it only made sense to do it again this year.

According to Marti, This year’s beer will feature Mosaic hops and will be brewed as a single batch, single hop Pilsner. Hops? How about 550 pounds of Mosaic hops? The brewery expects to get those hops in the latter part of the month and since it’s a lager, you’ll probably have to wait another 5-6 weeks to enjoy it.
