Modern Times Releasing Dinosaur World, Nautilus Harbour, Funky Fruitlands w/Apricot & Rye Whiskey Haunted Stars
08 February 2017
From Modern Times:
We're about to make your February significantly more awesome as we unleash 4 dazzling new beers on Brown Paper Tickets next Monday, following a League pre-sale. On offer will be our latest canned special release–and 1st canned DIPA–Dinosaur World, alongside a killer Haunted Stars variant and two new breathtaking miracles of funk. Quantities, as always, are limited (some of these may not survive the League pre-sale), so plan your purchasing schedule accordingly. Here's what you'll be getting a crack at:
Our 1st-ever hazy DIPA is a thunderous avalanche of hop-sorcery thats going to crash into your taste buds like a 100-megaton payload of pure pleasure. Boatloads of Citra, Amarillo, and Mosaic hops and fermentation with London III yeast came together to make this beer a tropical marvel, with outrageously tasty notes of passion fruit, tangerine, and stone fruit that will ensare both your palate and your heart.
HAUNTED STARS AGED IN RYE WHISKEY BARRELS W/ COCOA & VANILLA
Haunted Stars is a rye imperial porter rocking a chewy, chocolaty, spicy malt character that coats the mouth and warms the cockles. It starts off rich and full-bodied, with a velveteen texture and creamy dark chocolate flavor, and finishes with a lingering rye spiciness and pleasing earthiness. We aged this batch in spicy, gloriously fragrant rye whiskey barrels with vanilla and cocoa nibs, yielding a swirling maelstrom of delicious complexity thats going to light up your pleasure synapses like a thousand-watt Lite Brite.
For Nautilus Harbour, we set aside a few barrels of our white wine barrel-aged sour saison and stuffed each one with 50 pounds of local, heirloom plums. After months of mingling in the barrel, the resulting beer is a powerful & complex fruited sour beer with loads of plum aroma and flavor. Fermentation begins with our house Lomaland yeast culture and is then followed with a secondary fermentation by an alarmingly diverse array of sour & funky cultures.
FUNKY FRUITLANDS W/ APRICOT
Fruitlands has now firmly established itself within our lineup as both a bastion of unparalleled crushability and as a beer that lends itself extremely graciously to experimentation, hence this little gem. We upgraded this latest iteration of our beloved fruited gose to a penthouse suite in Flavor Tower by fermenting the kettle-soured wort with our house Brett strains and dialing the apricot addition up to 11. The resulting beer is a rollicking cascade of funky, fruity refreshment that rolls down the taste buds like your own personal second-line parade.
We'll send out the sale link on 2/13 around 9AM, and the sale begins at 10AM, so keep an eye on that inbox if you want to be first on the scene for these tasty beverages.
