HOT. Flying Dog Carolina Reaper Peach IPA

Flying Dog Carolina Reaper Peach IPA

Flying Dog Carolina Reaper Peach IPA is now a part of the brewery’s “Heat Series.” This hot one is notable. Especially if you love hot food.

It’s all about the Carolia Reaper pepper. You should know it by now as the world’s hottest pepper. It’s ridiculously hotter than Jalapeño. It’s hotter than Ghost Peppers. The brainchild of Puckerbutt Pepper Company’s Ed Currie.

So this isn’t just all heat (and later intestinal discomfort), the brewery added peaches.

 This beer’s sweet peach and juicy hops hit you first and then the Reaper chews you up and spits you out. One to fear, for sure.

The brewery said it best when they said Flying Dog Carolina Reaper Peach IPA goes hard in the paint. That’s a hot, menacing pepper. You won’t soon forget it.

Style: IPA (w/ Carolina Reaper Peppers, Peaches)
Availability: 12oz Bottles
Debut: Mid-August, 2016

Avery Xolotl, Barrel Aged Series #37

Avery Xolotl

Avery Xolotl looks to the 37th entry in the brewery’s on going Barrel-Aged Series.

Sierra Nevada Chocolate Chili Stout coming to High Altitude Series

Sierra Nevada Chocolate Chili Stout

Sierra Nevada Chocolate Chili Stout is a new big bottle potential from one of America’s most popular breweries.

While Sierra Nevada’s skill is in pale ales and India pale ales, recently they have been showing off their creativity with releases like Otra Vez. Future additions to their High Altitude Series will take that creativity even further, with the imperial stout with cocoa nibs and chilies you see above.

By their very nature, imperial stouts are bold beers. This version takes another step toward the dark side with the use of spicy and aromatic dried chilies and rich cocoa nibs for a complex and intense kick. It features notes of coffee, baker’s cocoa, and dark fruit and a slight twinge of heat.

Sierra Nevada Chocolate Chili Stout will be a 24 ounce bottle offering. If initial rumors prove true, this stout will be a part of a 4-pack of 24 ounce bottles, each a different style. 

The brewery has not yet announced this offering.

Style: Imperial Stout (w/ Cocoa Nibs, Chilies.)
Availability: 24oz Bottles
Release: TBA
