    Hey friends! Me, Mike, Bob, Justin, Fast Eddie, Jerry and the rest of the Hop Patrol successfully bottled our newest double IPA today! Sosus IIPA is a single hop Mosaic hop double that is 8% abv and 100 soothing IBU's. Be careful, it's smoothness will try to charm you into thinking she is as mild as our Session King...........be warned she is not.

    After we sanitized we celebrated with a bottle of limited CA beer from FW. They only made 3000 cases of it. It was delicious and made us wonder what you will think of our Sosus and the 115 cases of it we made today.

    Cheers!

    Clark

    Nope, every bit of it went to bottles.

    Bottles are available at the taproom right now. They'll start to be delivered elsewhere this week and next week.

    Drink fresh!

    Going to drink mine later I think. Don't want it to be a drain pour because it's 2 days old and not fresh anymore!

    Have you tried the Zeelander? I heard its very grapefruit forward, which I love. Are the rumors true? Thanks!

    When I first stopped at TG, the bartender described Zeelander as "earthy". It was an incredibly accurate description, it sums up the taste to a "T". It is an absolutely delicious beer, and is a great showcase for the hops used (Nelson Sauvin from New Zealand). If you've had Nelson by Alpine or Andy's Ale from Town Hall, it is similar - though I think both Zeelander and Andy's Ale kick Alpine's version back to San Diego.

    Love zeelander, but kick Alpine Nelson back to Cali? Don't think so. Those beers are fine equals.
