Uinta “Bourbon Barrel Aged Sea Legs” Baltic Porter, Track 7 “Equinox” Fresh Hop Double IPA, Monkey Paw “Lab Monkey” Cascadian Dark Ale and New Belgium “La Folie” Sour Brown Ale: Made a trip out to Final Gravity today in Roseville to check it out. Pretty cool spot. Decent bottle selection and tap list given there wasn’t anything special going on (as far as a tap takeover or something).
Sea Legs: When I ordered this I thought it was the regular one, but apparently they had a bourbon barrel version of it. For whatever reason though the beer started to sour. I can’t imagine why other than maybe because it’s a Baltic Porter? I don’t know how those age. Not overly palatable.
Equinox: So fresh, so hoppy. Super dank and juicy with plenty of citrus and tropical fruit character. Medium bodied with ample bitterness and carbonation. Very Palatable.
Lab Monkey: Apparently a rotating style of beer, this Dark Lab Monkey is a CDA with pleasant, moderately-roasted malt character with subtle, clean, floral hop notes. Well balanced with a lean towards malt. Medium bodied with moderate roast and bitterness and a lingering finish. Palatable.
La Folie: Num Nums. Highly palatable.
On December 13th Final Gravity is having an all Stout tap takeover with lots of limited releases and barrel aged stouts. I’ll definitely be requesting the day off. Maybe even the day after.
