LGDIPA – Collaboration with The Courtyard Brewery (New Orleans, LA) – A big, beautiful West Coast-style double IPA in collaboration with Urban South’s friends in the Lower Garden District. Soft waves of bitterness typical of a West Coast DIPA lead to tropical orange and juicy mango notes from the addition of Citra Pellet and Citra Incognito hops. 8.2% ABV.
Lizard Lounge – Collaboration with Modern Times Beer (San Diego, CA) – This hoppy Mixed-Fermentation Table Beer features Golden Promise, Spelt and Flaked Rye for a soft and complex malt base. Hopped with Centennial and Talus hops, which lend soft lime and lemon zest with touches of sweet coconut, and finished with a touch of orange peel as a nod to traditional Belgian brewing. This is a bottle-conditioned beer that will evolve over time thanks to the live brettanomyces inside of the bottle. 3.2% ABV.
Hop the Pond – Collaboration with Verdant Brewing Company (Penryn, England) – A balanced and refreshing West Coast IPA hopped primarily with Simcoe hops. A whirlpool addition of Mosaic Incognito, as well as Mosaic and Simcoe during the dry-hop, give off tropical fruit mixed with notes of pine and sweet floral. The sip is balanced by a touch of bitterness and hints of sweet malt. 8.9% ABV.
