Halloween is right around the corner, therefore we should feature none other than Evil Twin Brewery, for the MADE Brew of the Week. The famous gypsy brewery, which originated from Denmark, specializes in making one off beers that are quite remarkable. If you haven’t tasted anything from this brewery yet, then make sure to put them on your list of beers to try – they’re that good.
I was recently gifted a bottle of Evil Twin’s, Femme Fatale Kobosu, which is one of many from their Femme Fatale Series. This IPA says it all in the title. Brewed using Kabosu ( a common Japanese citrus fruit), this IPA is bursting with smooth fresh hops and citrusy fruit flavors. I noticed this one coming off similar to a florally Saison. This is one of many brews this company has absolutely nailed. Just be careful when pouring, this one comes packed with carbonation. Take a look at the ever-growing list of their brews below, and keep your eyes open for more from Evil Twin.
Whether you are an IPA lover or not, this beer has the ability to quench your thirst. Deschutes has once again put together an absolute mouthwatering version of the Fresh Squeeze IPA. The best part about this brew, it is now offered year round as opposed to seasonally.
One can’t help but notice how flavorful and fruity the beer is. A majority of IPAs are rather bitter with a stronger finish. You might taste mango, pineapple or even oranges, all in one swig of this brew. Overall, it has quite a clean finish, all while sitting just above 6% ABV. This beer is an instant favorite and will probably see more sales once Spring and Summer are full effect.
Sierra Nevada recently released their 4-Way IPA variety pack. Out of the four, this beer happens to be one of our favorites. Although it is damn near a four-way tie, this beer is flat out smooth for a Black IPA.
With an even mixture of roasted malts and hops, the beer is really not overwhelming at all. It tastes nothing like any other Black IPA that I have ever had before. This is something fresh and smooth that you could drink year round, unlike most Black IPAs. So far the only way we have been able to find the beer, is in the variety pack that we noted above. I would definitely grab a sixer if it was available.
