New Beer Friday, John Palmer's Itinerary Edition (July 28)

Preamble by Steve Siciliano

If you're involved in the West Michigan homebrewing community, I'm sure you're excited about noted author John Palmer coming to the environs of Beer City USA during the second week in August.

We'll be keeping John busy during his visit to West Michigan.

New and Returning Beer

  • Dark Horse Smells Like A Citra Safety Meeting, $2.19/12oz - "A new addition to the Smells Like family this IPA uses the same malt profile as our seasonal IPA called Smells Like a Safety Meeting and clocks in at 8.5% ABV. Instead of the proprietary hop blend we like so much in the original Smells Like a Safety Meeting, we removed all of the hops and replaced them with Citra hops giving this beer a very citrus forward nose and flavor profile" (source).
