Tonight’s beer is from one of my favorite breweries. I’ve had a few beers from them and they are all incredibly solid. Jersey gets distribution from Paradox, but it comes in dribs and drabs. Since I changed jobs, I don’t have a great beer store that I can hit on my way home. The one in town, despite being rather run down, gets alright distribution, but I need to find a new spot. Let’s get to the beer.
Style: American Wild Ale
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Where modern brewing processes collide headlong into ancient brewing techniques. Every beer that Paradox Beer Company produces is barrel-aged and bottle-conditioned. In 2012, Jeff, Brian and David, equipped with over 30 years of combined professional brewing experience, founded Paradox Beer Company. Paradox Beer Company produces original and rare beers which honor the uncertainty of nature bound with rigorous quality testing, providing one-of-a-kind flavors that could only be produced by Paradox.”
Random: I would go back to Colorado just to visit Paradox. I didn’t get up there the last time we were there.
This beer poured with a quarter of a finger ofSin white head that dissipated instantly. It left no lacing on the glass. The body was a slight hazy orange color with moderate carbonation. The nose started with passionfruit and mango up front. The taste had a pleasant sour note to it that complemented the mango and passionfruit. The alcohol wasn’t overly apparent and the mouthfeel was on the lighter side. It had a lengthy finish with mango and funk. I would definitely have this one again. If you see it, I would pick up a bottle.
