Style: American Sour IPA

ABV: 7.1%

Notes: Brewed with lactose, London Ale III yeast, Mosaic and Lemon Drop hops, soured with Lactobacillus Delbruecki and fermented on top of fresh Yuzu citrus fruits, this brew blurs the lines between IPA, sour ale and fruited ale. 

Heavy Seas “Red Flag Barrel-Aged Sour”

Style: Flanders Red Ale

ABV: 8%

Notes: Brewed in the classic Flemish Red style, Red Flag is brewed in small batches on their 15 bbl brewhouse. Each batch is aged in stainless steel and then moved to bourbon and red wine barrels for further maturing. The barrels are then hand selected and blended to create the most complex and seductive sour ale possible. Red Flag is the first sour offering in the Uncharted Waters series. Deep ruby in color, this barrel-aged sour ale delights with sweet malt tones, complex fruit undertones and a deliciously tart finish.   

Heavy Seas “Sun Burst Sour Ale”

Notes: When vacation is just a memory and the fireworks have faded, it’s still gonna be hot! Cool down with a bright burst of raspberry lemon sunshine. Sun Burst Sour Ale has the perfect balance of sweet and tart with a light malt base that’s 100% summer!

Monument City “Gose with Mango & Passionfruit”

Style: Gose

ABV: 4.5%

Notes: Sour ales and summertime go together! This gose is tart, refreshing, and is complimented with fresh mango and passionfruit. This beer is the same base as Monument City’s other current seasonal sour, Gose w/ Lemon & Lime, except this version has a more tropical and warm weather vibe to it.

Monument City “June Solstice Wheat IPA”

Style: American IPA

ABV: 6.5%

Notes: Wheat IPA? What is this 2014? Not quite. Some of you have been deceived in the latest hazy trend. While some of the small guys are kicking out murky, opaque, heavily dry-hopped New England IPAs, some of the bigger national craft brands are making “hazy” IPAs by leaving them unfiltered and giving that cloudy look with the use of an abundance of wheat. Monument City’s June Solstice is their version of what we call today’s “hazy IPA”, but keeping true to this style’s roots by dubbing it an actual wheat IPA…which is what it is. Jam packed with Citra, El Dorado, and Amarillo hops, this juicy wheat IPA is bursting with citrus, pineapple, and tropical fruit flavors. All the hazybois don’t have to wait 6 hours in line to suffice their hazy cravings, they can just grab a sixer of June Solstice.
