SUDS  Episode – Brewery takeover edition with Sun Lab Brewing from Miami, FL. Lots of shades of the same beer. Yet another brewery that is taking the same base beer and then creating 20+ hop blends. And then calling that brewing. There is some good beer going on, but maybe the creative process needs to stop being creative. Is hot dog water a BJCP tasting term?  We taste and rate the following beer from 1-5:

10:33 Shine So Bright- American Sour ale brewed with pomegranate, pineapple, and guava 5.7% ABV.  SUDS-3

13:16 Faded Nights – Hazy IPA with Mosaic hops and lactose.  7.5% ABV SUDS-2

SIPS  Episode –   Whisky from The Cooper Single Malt, The Benriach, and Highland Park Cask Strength. The thrill in Brent’s (our resident American Whiskey expert) voice is deafening. Justin also brings his world class palate for potpourri to discuss these products. Peat is not always the same and these products are a good example of the wide variation of various sources of peat. LOTS of discussion about water. On a whisky episode. Tip - Don’t try to use smallpox as a means of tax evasion. We taste and rate the following whiskey from 1-5:

6:30 The Cooper Single Malt Scotch Whisky - 46% ABV - 92 Proof – 3 SIPS

13:45 BenRiach - The Original Ten, 10 YO, 43% ABV – 86 Proof – 3 SiPS

22:35 BenRiach - The Twelve– 46% ABV – 92 Proof – 3 SIPS

27:00 BenRiach - The Twenty One– 46% ABV – 92 Proof – 4 SIPS

SUDS  Episode – We take a look at the consumption of some lighter style beers as the weather turns cold. Quite the opposite of most consumer choices which tend to turn towards those heavier darker beer. Could this be that illusive bathing suit strategy you’ve been seeking? Nope, but it may introduce you to some beer you’ve been ignoring. Come on out of the beer cave and try a flavor maybe you have not fully embraced. We taste and rate the following beer from 1-5:

14:02 Winter Cheers- Hazy Wheat ale hopped with Citra and Tettnang 6.7% ABV.   Victory Brewing Company - Downingtown, PA    SUDS-4

27:30 Accumulation- White IPA with Mosaic and Amarillo hops 6.2% ABV.  New Belgium Brewing - Fort Collins, CO    SUDS-4

33:00 Bright White- Belgian-inspired wheat ale 5.0% ABV. Bell’s Brewery - Comstock, MI   SUDS-3

35:38 The Long Thaw White IPA- Hazy IPA with orange peel and coriander 6.2% ABV. Harpoon Brewery - Boston, MA    SUDS-3

40:10 Cold Snap – white ale brewed with ground spring spices 5.3% ABV.  Boston Beer Company – Boston, MA   SUDS-3

SIPS  Episode – A zero theme episode with the first of many guest co-hosts joining our regular cast. Tubular. Several brands that are fairly new and in the process of expanding distribution.  Just not memorable, hmm, possibly the most popular comment about this show. Maybe if we added some wood spires to this show it would be better? That technique does not work for whiskey and probably not for us.  We taste and rate the following whiskey from 1-5:

7:04 Spirit Works Four Grain Straight Bourbon Whiskey – 90 Proof - 45% ABV – 2 SIPS

13:40 Spirit Works Straight Rye Whiskey – 90 Proof - 45% ABV – 2 SIPS

20:45 Spirit Works Straight Wheat Whiskey - 90 Proof - 45% ABV – 2 SIPS

28:12 Oak and Eden Bourbon & Spire– 90 Proof – 45% ABV – 1 SIP

36:30 Oak and Eden Rye & Spire – 90 Proof – 45% ABV – 1 SIP

40:33 Fistful of Bourbon – 90 Proof 45% ABV – 3 SIPS
