IPA 7 (6.7%) – “Next up in our IPA series is a bright, New World hop characteristics of fresh crushed gooseberry and white grape. An IPA that showcases the unique qualities of New Zealand hops.”
Looking forward to the wet hop and No. 7, but I'm over the whole sour / gose / berliner craze and wish it would go die a quiet death somewhere. I appreciate the complexities of something like a Cantillon, but I find that too many of the beers we're getting are carbon copies of each other or fruited versions on a theme. Its the same with milkshake IPAs - if I have one I often get to the bottom of my glass and wonder if it wouldn't have been better to spend my money on a glass of juice instead.
Shit, I'm becoming cantankerous as I age.
I'll always love sours, but I do agree with the milkshake IPAs and overly fruited beers in general, a lot of them are practically glorified radlers. I think the prevelance of sours and saisons is just how the craft beer market seems to go nowadays. A few years ago it was crystal malt hop bomb IPAs everywhere. Now the crowds are flocking to sours and barrel aged, fruited everything. I'm sure soon enough it'll be something else- personally I think it's about time malty beers got some love.
