This IPA's outta sight! (Get it?)
If you have been following my site for a while (thank you if the answer is “Yes!”), then you know that I have been documenting the amazing story of a burgeoning Atlanta brewery called Monday Night Brewing which started as a homebrewing Bible study group. (Here are some of the posts.) Already flossing an awesomely massive brewing facility on Atlanta’s west side, plus some really tasty brews on their roster including the Fu Manbrew Belgian-style Wit, Drafty Kilt Scotch Ale, and Eye Patch IPA, these cats continue to do it big. Now, you need look for their new double IPA called the Blind Pirate that is now on the shelves. I have had it and it’s pretty damn good! They just sent me the official breakdown below.
“A surprisingly balanced double IPA. A pirate without the use of his eyes is a bitter man indeed. And this Blind Pirate’s bitterness is only matched by his boldness. He doesn’t care if you enjoy the citrusy, spicy combination of hops on your tongue, the faint herbal notes in your nose, or the exquisite balance of caramel malts looting your senses. The Blind Pirate is a bold, bitter ale not for the weak in spirit. Just don’t ask him if you can borrow his sight glass. He gets offended.”
• 8.2% ABV
• 85 IBUs
• Hops: Simcoe, Willamette, Columbus, and Cascade
• Grain Bill: Marris Otter as a base malt, with Munich, caramel, and a smidge of wheat
It’s their first 22-ounce bottle and fourth year-round sipper, so it’s a big deal for these distinguished gents. Let me know what you think when you taste it and be sure to make one of their sweet brewery tours.With a silhouetted dude in a suit and tie for their logo, the Monday Night posse evidently means serious business! (Oh yeah, I also featured them on this killer website called FirstWeFeast.com as well. It's all ATL love.)
