Beer: Three-Legged Race Style: Dry-Hopped Berliner-Style Weisse ABV: 4.6% IBU: 4
Berliners (similar to Curio) are stylistically semi-tart and highly carbonated. Three-Legged Race with a Citra dry-hop is certainly that, but also bursting with white grape and grapefruit notes.
HYDRA BEER COMPANY
125 W. 10th St., Sioux Falls // hydrabeercompany.com
Beer: Altar of Ash Style: Black IPA ABV: 6.8% IBU: 98
Jet black in color, and poured with a slightly tan head. The aroma imparts piney, resinous, dark malt tones. A silky mouthfeel, and mild creaminess takes a hard turn into a complex, and engaging bitterness, that makes the mouth water for another sip. Calculated additions of Caramel, and Chocolate Malts balance out the three hop additions added to the boil. Copious amounts of the Chinook, and Centennial varieties bring us up to the bitterness level the style is treasured for. After fermentation was nearly complete, a very generous amount of Simcoe hops, and Simcoe Lupulin powder were thrown in the tank for good measure.
