Tricerahops Double IPA (8% ABV) from Ninkasi Brewing in Eugene, Oregon.
"Tricerahops is double everything you already love in an IPA. More hops, more malt body and a higher gravity define this Double India Pale Ale. Fiercely flavorful, guaranteed to satisfy.
Double IPAs are noted for their hop profiles. Earthy, floral hop aroma, and flavor are abundent in Tricerahops. The bigger body and higher alcohol balance the large volume of hops to create a beer that is very flavorful while still being balanced and drinkable. At 8 percent ABV the beer can be deceiving as it is very smooth." - Ninkasi Brewing
St. Bernardus Abt 12, a Quadrupel (10% ABV) brewed by Brouwerij St. Bernardus NV in Watou, Belgium.
Deep brown in color; aromas of fruit and spice. Smooth, thick and rich. Finishes crisp with some sweetness. Big flavorful beer. One of the original recipes from the days of license-brewing for the Trappist monks of Westvleteren. We have been sitting on this version for a year in our magic temperature controlled beer box.
"Sheer bliss. Viewed as an abbey beer. According to Daisy (owner of 't Brugs Beertje), this beer follows the same recipe, uses the same water and its hops comes from the same hop regions as Westvleteren. "Abt" means the "highest rank." They also make a "Prior" at about half the strength." - Alstrom Brothers on BeerAdvocate.com where the Brothers rate this beer 100/World-Class
Today's the last Wednesday of the month and your last chance to get a FREE Spider Bite/Donnelly's logo pint glass when you order a Spider Bite draft.
On tap now is their First Bite Pale Ale (5.5% ABV). Generous additions of American hops, light body and a dry finish give it plenty of flavor and aroma while still remaining highly drinkable.
