Highlights Flying Dog Salt & Pepper Tripel And Single Hop Denali

25 January 2017

mybeerbuzz.comIt’s a never ending river of interesting new beers coming from Flying Dog.  Whether it’s their unique one-off Brewhouse Rarities Series or their Single Hop experimental series, there’s no shortage of cool and tasty brews coming out of their brewery.  Thankfully that never ending river is flowing into mybeerbuzz headquarters, so today you get a peek at two more new Flying Dog brews.
This evening we’ll be sampling the new Brewhouse Rarities Series Salt & Pepper Tripel and the latest Single Hop Imperial IPA that uses Denali Hops…and based on the name alone, I couldn’t resist starting with Salt & Pepper Tripel.  This beer pours a very traditional golden color with a little less cloudiness than I was expecting.  The aromas certainly follow through with what you’d expect from a classic Belgian-style Tripel but with a little more spice.  I assumed this experiment was based on salt & pepper potato chips so the peppery start to the flavors was not a surprise.  The pepper gives way to some sweetness and some traditional Belgian yeast flavors, and the salt sneaks in at the end for a semi-dry but satisfying finish.  I like how the salt and pepper lingered at the end and while it is not a traditional Tripel by any means, it is a really interesting combination of flavors that we really liked.  This beer is brewed with pink Himalayan sea salt as well as black peppercorns and Salt & Pepper Tripel slides in at 8.2%-AbV so be sure to share it with a friend (even if it is only a 12oz bottle).
Up next we sampled a beer from one of my favorite Flying Dog series; their Single Hop Imperial IPA series.  This release features Denali hops and we always enjoy the bright orange-ish color this series of beer pours.  We found citrus in the nose and loads more citrus in the flavors.  There’s a pleasant sweet canned pineapple in the flavors followed by a resinous piney finish.  This beer feels stick (in a good way) and we really like what Denali hops brought to the beer.  As the beer warmed the citrus and orange punched up, but the finish remained resinous and slightly boozy. beer hits 8%-AbV so it will get your attention, but it’s so tasty you’ll want to keep it all to yourself.

Both of these beers are available now in 12oz bottles and we definitely recommend you try them both…and when you do be sure to let us know what YOU think.
