Saucony Creek Hop Suplex Ale

Saucony Creek Hop Suplex Ale

I hope you all had a lovely Fourth of July weekend. I most certainly did. We had perfect weather yet again, adding to amazing summer thus far. On Friday and Saturday we went to parties and on Sunday I played 18. This was the first time I had picked up a golf club in probably four weeks! And boy did I suck! I drove the ball OK, but my medium and short game blew goats. Regardless, I got to throw back some beers with good friends, so who cares how I played?

Tonight (and all this week) I’ll be recapping beers I co-reviewed with buddy Greg last week. Tonight’s recap is of Saucony Creek Hop Suplex Ale. Saucony Creek is out of Kutztown, PA and I’m 99% positive you can’t find it in New England.

The beer is a 10% ABV Imperial IPA, and at first you really can’t tell it is so boozy. Tons of citrus hops come through masking the alcohol. As the beer warms, the alcohol is more obvious. Greg said that he liked the beer cold, but disliked it more as it warmed. I kinda liked the beer all around and thought it went down dangerously quick!
