It may be 3 weeks until LSU football kicks off against Wisconsin, but Gameday is here now. Gameday IPA, from Tin Roof Brewing, that is.
Gameday Session IPA makes its return beginning Friday at the brewery with a release party featuring food from City Pork. Try it on tap, and grab a six pack or two to go, while at the brewery’s taproom starting at 4 pm. They will also have a single keg of Game Daze, Gameday dry hopped with Lemondrop and El Dorado hops.
You may remember that I had an issue with the first batch last year, but I’m happy to report that the new team of brewers at Tin Roof got it right from the get go on this year’s initial release. I get notes of mango, apricot, melon and pine, with a clean finish. There’s no trace of the breadiness or muddled hop flavor in last year’s release. This one has a nice hoppy aroma and full flavor, while still being easy to drink.
Cans will be shipping to retailers soon, so look for it to hit the shelves at your favorite stores beginning next week.
