Great Iowa Beer Festival Category Vote: Hazy/New England Sytle IPA

From BA: NEIPA is essentially an unfiltered IPA or Double IPA that’s been aggressively hopped. Appearance ranges from slightly hazy or cloudy to opaque or muddy. Dry-hopping, the use of high-protein grains (flours, flaked oats, wheat), certain yeast strains, water chemistry, CO2 levels, and other techniques may also contribute to the beer’s haze and mouthfeel. But the overall goal is typically a hazy, juicy IPA packed with fruity and floral flavors

Iowa Beer Sneak Peek! Clock House Low Bandito!

low bandito

Before I get into the details of this brew from Clock House I just want to share the release info for it which is coming this Wednesday!

*For the first time Clock House will be offering their delicious imperial stout in 16 oz cans starting this Wednesday, May 6th starting at 3:00 p.m. Low Bandito is an imperial stout aged with habanero peppers, limes, cacao nibs, vanilla beans and cinnamon. This is what you think a Mexican hot chocolate would taste like. This bad boy checks in at 11% ABV. Pick yours up at Clock House curbside starting this Wednesday!

Alright, there are the deets for the release. Onto the tasty brew itself. Was very grateful to Clock House staff for hooking me up with one first of all, so thank you to them! I’ve been spending a lot of my time driving over and picking up Pineapple Witch Slap on what seems to be a daily basis but this Wednesday I’ll be driving over for Low Bandito.

POUR
Dark viscous pour, aroma of cinnamon and cocoa take center stage with vanilla on the back. Nice looking tan head on this thing this dissipates.

TASTE
Cinnamon, chocolate, and vanilla right away and then a small shot of heat from the habanero, the lime is very subtle, but you can definitely get some faint citrus from it.

OVERALL
I can’t wait to get more of this. A few to sip on when the spring evening gets a tad cool and the sun goes down and maybe a few to store to see what the flavors do. Clock House has been upping their game constantly; IPAs, Sours, stouts, etc…they’ve been pushing it and they’ve been delivering! Get there this Wednesday folks and if you get some I’d love to hear your thoughts! Cheers!
