- Watch out traditional West Coast IPAs, a feud is brewing! Beerie Smalls is our take on the emerging “East Coast” IPA trend, but it comes at a sessionable strength.
It is just what you would expect from a beer with East Coast inspirations: a delightfully smooth and creamy body, a dense cap of everlasting foam, lucious flavors reminiscent of tropical and citrus fruit juices, and that Notorious hazy appearance. Driven by loads of flame-out hop additions, Beerie Smalls finishes with a smooth bitterness and massive hop flavor - Who Hopped Ya? Two rounds of dry hopping round out the recipe by adding in-your-face aromas, because I like it when you call me Dry Hoppa’.

- 5.0 / 5.02 ReviewsUpdate to first reviewOk so a quick update now that I've got this thing kegged and carbed.. Drinking a glass with my brother as I type this.. It's a very good IPA but no where near a Julius or "Juicy type IPA". If I had to describe it, it still reminds me of a west coast IPA similar to Pliny the elder, without all the bitterness.. It has a very smooth finish, due to both the IBU's and the Vermont ale yeast.. The Aroma is amazing, very fruity with hints of floral, and the taste is fruity with a good balance between malt and hops, finishing with a very smooth biterness. I would definitely brew this again but I am still in search of that cloudy, glowing orange fruit bomb.October 4, 2016Really good "juicy" IPASo I've been brewing for about 3 years now and feel I have it down pretty darn good, but am still always learning.. With that said, I am also very good at drinking beer. I am from west coast and thought Pliny the Elder was the cats meow for an IPA, until I got my hands on a few cans of Heady Topper and thought it just couldn't get any better. Then I had a can of Julius and was blown away. Problem is I can't just walk into a bar and get any of those on tap, or walk into a store and pick up a 4 pk.. So I have been on a hunt for brewing the perfect east coast/juicy/NE IPA.. I saw this kit pop up and figured I'd use it to try as my first brew on my new Grainfather.. Needless to say I came out with 4.5 gallons into the fermenter. I gave it what I thought was 90 seconds with pure oxygen but realized after I pitched the yeast that I forgot to open the oxygen bottle.. I pitched an Omega Vermont IPA with no starter(supposedly not needed). SG-14.9 brixFG-7.1 brixABV-7%I do build my water from scratch from 100% R/O water. Cold crashing as we speak and going to keg tomorrow.. Took a taste and both aroma and flavor are awesome.. Will report back when it's legged and carbed but so far an awesome beer.September 27, 2016
