    Virtual Booth/Discussion Thread for:

    Weathered Souls Brewing Co. (San Antonio, Texas)

    West Coast IPA (American IPA); 7%; 16oz can
    The de facto flagship beer of our lineup, our West Coast IPA pays homage to Marcus' old school California origins with some Texas-persuaded adaptations. Abandoning the darker, sometimes egregiously sweet copper colored malt bombs that made up the gold standard of IPAs from the mid-to-late 90s to the early 2000s, our West Coast is leading the IPA reformation in San Antonio with a dry, crisp, and citrus forward profile, outselling all other craft IPAs in the region three-to-one. A bursting bouquet of tangerine, lemon, grapefruit, and other bright citrus aromatics leads the charge with just enough residual malt sugars to offer a modest body and balance out a moderate level of IBUs. A light cereal-like malt sweetness lifts the overall hop profile without getting in the way of the ballet of resinous, piney, and citrus characters that make up the bulk of the flavor profile. This modern classic is the archetype of the new age West Coast IPA.

    What is your grain build for a new age West Coast IPAs? Is the grain build the same but the change is around the timing of when you pitch flavoring hops like at whirlpool with higher temps or lower during / after ferment ?

    How has the Black is Beautiful initiative started by your brewery impacted the brewery? Has it been generally well received?

    Marcus, will you be brewing Black is Beautiful #4 again in the future? If not... would you make a homebrew recipe available? It's my favourite beer of all time, and it breaks my heart that it might be gone forever.

    Another beer or brewery i haven't tried yet. But that will all change tonight. I like west coast ipa's for the most part. It's definitely an acquired taste. But once you get used to it they settle in. I'm interested to try this one though. Being from Texas, have you tried brewing any jalapeno or hot pepper beers and if so how did they turn out? Thanks a lot!!

    Texas has been going through a lot of changes in recent years. How have you seen the beer scene change during your time there?

    Please help us store our beer best. Should we store them upright, laid down or at an angle? Do we need to really worry about the yeast swill at the bottom of the can?

    Hey Jessie! I've been in two classes in the UVM brewery operations with you. Have you found this program to be practically useful in your every day work at the brewery?

    Texas is a boozy state. I moved to CA from there. How do you feel you are contributing to the Texas craft movement? Texas is fiercely independent how do you stand out?

    You are rubbing all us bald guys faces in it right now. Where do you see IPA's going in the next few years? Not so much clear vs hazy, but more/less malty??? or even more IPL's?

    Love your beer very clean not overly hoppy!
