We stopped by Urban South Brewery to check out a few of their new releases! Check them out below!
First up is Urban South’s new White Oak IPA. It is their legendary Holy Roller IPA that they age over white oak chips. It is cloudy-straw in color and has subtle aromas of oak and vanilla from the wood chips along with the piney hop bitterness of Holy Roller that we all love!
Next up is their new Rye IPA, which is double dry hopped with El Dorado, Hallertau Blanc, and experimental hop HPC472. It has a pretty cloudy-golden color with a pleasant spicy aroma from the rye. This IPA has a nice hop bitterness that imparts aromas and flavors of citrus, tropical fruit, and nice floral character that is balanced by the nice malt backbone and the spicy rye finish.
Third in line we had this years version of their Double Dry Hopped Holy Roller. This time it is double dry hopped with El Dorado, which imparts nice fruity flavors and aromas of stone fruit and tropical notes. This DDH version of the great Holy Roller IPA has super aromas of tropical fruit and pine. Holy Rollers nice fruity flavors and piney hop aromas are well balanced by the malt bill making it the great IPA that is has become known for.
Lastly, we have Urban South’s Russian Ties, their Russian Imperial Stout. This one isn’t barrel aged like the last one, but is still delicious! It pours jet black as expected with a small tan head. Nice aromas of roasted malts, burnt caramel, bittersweet chocolate, and subtle alcohol booziness. It is medium bodied with nice malt sweetness and flavors of chocolate and roasted malts.
Special thanks to Urban South for letting us try their new beers! Hope yall can get out there and give them all a try!
