It seems like the brewers at Prairie Artisan Ales in Oklahoma turn everything they touch into gold — including one of their latest creations, Funky Gold Mosaic. This sour ale is dry-hopped with loads of Mosaic hops — which is probably the hottest hop strand since Citra — making this tart, refreshing beer an incredibly unique offering. But it's the undeniable balance that really make this beer shine, as the fantastic hop aromas and sour bite mingle like friends at a summer backyard barbecue.
Tired of hops yet? Yeah, we didn't think so. And when it comes to hopped up beers, it's tough to beat Beachwood Brewing. Greenshift Double IPA is the latest in a long line of hoppy, delicious beers to come out of their highly regarded brewery, and it might be the best. Brewed to celebrate their third anniversary, Greenshift has just about everything you'd want in a Double IPA, tons of hop varities, 10% ABV, and over 100 IBU as well. It's enough to make you pack up and head straight for the West Coast on a spontaneous vacation.
Already well known for their stable of consistently great beers, Founders Brewing continues to impress with their Backstage Series as well, a limited edition release of something special. The latest Backstage release is Dissenter Imperial India Pale Lager, which just happens to be the first lager that Founders has brewed in twelve years. Dissenter may be a lager, but it isn't shy when it comes to hop influence, boasting a variety of citrus-forward hops and weighing in at 8.7% and 70 IBUs. You can find it in bottles starting on August 1st, but chances are it won't stick around very long.
